Sustainable Design

Sustainable design is the design of sustainable buildings. Sustainable architecture attempts to reduce the collective environmental impacts during the production of building components, during the construction process, as well as during the lifecycle of the building (heating, electricity use, carpet cleaning etc.) This design practice emphasizes efficiency of heating and cooling systems; alternative energy sources such as solar hot water, appropriate building siting, reused or recycled building materials; on-site power generation - solar technology, ground source heat pumps, wind power; rainwater harvesting for gardening, washing and aquifer recharge; and on-site waste management such as green roofs that filter and control stormwater runoff. This requires close cooperation of the design team, the architects, the engineers, and the client at all project stages, from site selection, scheme formation, material selection and procurement, to project implementation.

We can customize designs to meet your needs. your climate, your aesthetics.

We can consult and guide you through building your own earthship with your local builders, laborers, codes, permitting, etc.

We can retrofit your home with earthship biotecture, so you can live more efficiently in terms of energy, water, economics, etc. When your home is more energy efficient, it becomes more valuable and less costly to operate.

Earthship global model plan

Designed to meet Standard Building Codes.

All of our construction drawings are designed to meet standard building code requirements. Earthship Biotecture cannot guarantee your plans will qualify for a building permit. That is because before granting a permit, building code departments sometimes require changes or additions to architectural plans that have been submitted. Once we mail your final plans to you and you find they require changes for a building permit, we will do them for you at our normal hourly rates.

After you receive your plans and you require modifications, including a redesign of your project or value engineering, Earthship Biotecture reserves the right to charge an additional fee to make these changes. Please note that we mail you your final plans only after you have reviewed them and given us your approval.
