People are often mystified by our idea of merging historic building techniques with contemporary technology. What many don't realize is that so many of our 'modern' concepts have been adapted from our ancestors. Sustainable building techniques are not necessarily new, and many aren't even technologically advanced. Ecologically-sound building is practical and resourceful, and throughout history many have relied on it as means of survival.
Today, society has fashioned the term ‘green’ for these methods of design and construction.
