The days of eco building meaning mud houses with windows made from wine bottles are long gone. Brothers Julian and Jason Watson Todd of Terravita and their team of specialists are at the forefront of sustainable architecture and building. Using the latest technologies and the newest materials they can take your project from a seed and grow it into a beautiful, energy efficient home, inside and out.
Terravita follow the principles of two of the most respected design institutions in the world: Passivhaus and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Passivhaus homes are built to an exacting standard with meticulous attention to detail and certification through a comprehensive quality assurance process. The US Green Building Council monitors the LEED program: a strict rating system that exemplifies best practice in design and construction.
There are so many factors to consider when building your own home. It’s impossible to ignore environmental impacts, especially when those considerations can also save you money. Now that new materials and technologies segue so seamlessly into contemporary and traditional design there is no reason not to go green.
Terravita’s ethos is the future. Whether it’s a modern villa, a reformed finca or a new build, Terravita’s specialist team will make it gorgeous and green.
