When it comes to building more sustainable housing, there’s no better tool to get it done than to reduce the amount of land you need to build on.
This is one of the biggest reasons why we are so excited about the upcoming Residential Design Guidelines released this week.
The guidelines aim to help architects create new homes that use less land.
They also call for a less dense design of residential buildings.
For example, the guidelines recommend building new housing with an overall footprint of between 4 and 10 square meters.
In the United States, the average residential building footprint is between 6 and 15 square meters, according to the American Institute of Architects.
To get that size, architects should follow this simple rule: Build smaller, less dense, and more environmentally friendly homes.
“A good design should be a mix of low, medium, and high impact areas.
These include the design of exterior walls, landscaping, utilities, and interior surfaces,” the guidelines say.
And for the most part, these guidelines are good news for homeowners who have limited space to build and don’t want to sacrifice aesthetics.
The guidelines call for architects to build a home in a space of 15 to 20 square meters or less, or up to 10 percent less in height.
This includes areas like parking lots, garage entrances, and courtyards.
The goal of these guidelines is to reduce land use in residential buildings by reducing the amount needed to build.
These guidelines say that the most important thing to achieve this goal is to design buildings in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and environmentally sustainable.
If the rules are followed, architects will be able to focus on less space and make better use of land in their homes.
