Environmental analysis has been carried out to simulate the shade and shadow on the facade of the family house. The design considered the results of these calculations.
We are working with environmental consultants Eco Consulting, as well as with electromechanical engineering company OPUS specialized in sustainable solutions. IBSAR, a local association, will be mapping the existing vegetation to assess its environmental value and help us determine which other species to introduce that have a low water consumption and would increase biodiversity on site.
We are now in the process of determining best practices for sensible construction and appropriate building materials, energy generation and most importantly water conservation and reuse given the limitations of these materials and appropriate legislation in Lebanon.
