Housing and Extreme Weather

Sunday, 13 January 2013

Given the bushfires currently burning in various areas in Australia, it reminds me how critical it is to consider the environment within which a house sits.  A good designer will consider all these environmental factors, both constant and variable, when designing a home for you.  The home should respond to the environment and not impose itself on it.  It is also important that the structure and its surroundings respond to the environmental risks such as bushfire to increase its chances of survival (and those within it) as much as is possible.  Our thoughts are with those living with this risk at the moment.
