Not all of a build­ing’s sus­tain­abil­ity has to with its con­struc­tion. The pat­terns of oc­cu­pa­tion and use are also rel­e­vant. Naish says he de­signed his with garag­ing for only one car – a big and per­haps pre­ma­ture call for a three-child fam­ily (think of all those school drop-offs and sports fix­tures). But he says, the goal of this self-deny­ing de­sign ges­ture is to get down to one car. And that is as mean­ing­ful move in a sus­tain­able di­rec­tion than any num­ber of self­com­post­ing toi­lets.
