Did you know that style matters?
For most folks ecological footprint takes second place is second to comfort otherwise we’d all keep our thermostats at 33 degrees!
People with the means to buy a house usually want it to be comfortable and look nice. Ecological notions have evolved to perception of tiny spaces because of the false perception that a comfortable space is wasteful.
While this is true with conventional building – it is untrue with advanced engineering.
In fact ecological efficiency increases with scale. The actual cost of enclosed space decreases, and thermal absorption characteristics improve with size.
