Designing with Mother Earth in Mind

As the world grows and cities are built, the social fabrics change, numerous challenges will be faced.


Socially and culturally we should be schooling and teaching our communities about Environmental Sustainability, we should be creating communities that protect the environment and contribute towards sustaining it.


Social Sustainability is about preserving the diversity of the social relations that prevail in our communities and homes. Social sustainability is not only about the outcome but is also about the process that achieves this outcome. We need to create the physical, cultural and social places that care for our wellbeing. We also need to build a home that engages with the people who inhabit it. Designing the physical space in the home is critical as the physical outcomes need to engage with the social and cultural beliefs of the residents.

We as humans thrive on social lives. Relationships are critical to our ‘wellbeing’. Lack of Social life will lead to isolation and loneliness. It is very important for our health and wellbeing to be socially and culturally connected.


What kind of home do we want to build? What relationships do we want to build with the surrounding natural habitat and with the people around us? What are the lifestyles, technologies and aesthetic values we desire? At Eco Abode we will help you build your socially sustainable home. For more information please contact us at [email protected]
