1. Vernacular architecture: Looking to the past to innovate in the presentTaking cues from traditional building forms can be a good starting point for sustainable design. Buildings in earlier times were designed without modern heating and cooling systems. Designers and builders used natural ventilation in hot months and solar heat gain in cold months to respond to the local climate in the layout and details of their houses.A vernacular farmhouse, like this more than 100-year-old one in Adelaide, Australia, with a long and low metal gable roof, fits in well with the landscape. Lessons From Vernacular Architecture That Apply Even Today

What can we learn: Traditional vernacular housing is a result of necessity. It provides only what is essential and does away with any unnecessary excess. If you’re designing or renovating a house, carefully consider your family’s needs, and the way you live or want to live. Where do you like to spend most of your time? Do you enjoy indoor/outdoor living? What are the requirements for your kitchen
