The good life


The Beddington Zero Energy Development ( BedZED ) sustainable residential project, and the views of its architect, Bill Dunster, are discussed. His objective is to reduce the environmental impact of houses whilst increasing the quality of life for most ordinary people. It is proposed that comparable zero energy homes could be built at a cost of only 15% above that of housing built to Building Regulations minimum requirements if 1000 such homes were built annually. A carbon negative high-rise building is proposed.
