home sounded like a dream to some. These days that much square footage sounds like a noose around your neck. Theres uncertainty about the energy cost to heat your house." Slowing down to design a space that is functional long-lasting meets the needs of the family now and later and is of course stylish and comfortable - thats the aim of the slow home movement. But even if you are not starting from scratch you can still join in living a slow home lifestyle. Re-work your rooms to make sure that they are functional for your familys everyday living.
The concept is to use well-considered design principles to create smaller homes that will be both environmentally sustainable and literally so in the sense of being built to endure. The practice also includes remodels of existing appropriately sized older homes that need updating. Brown says in an interview with The Chicago Tribune that a slow home is "reasonably sized and carefully designed to support its occupants. It might have an entry where family members can easily take off their boots stash their keys and store their backpacks for example.
What is slow home design? Basically it is the principle of slowing down to design homes and spaces that are sustainable practical and functional. The slow home movement began in 2006 when John Brown Matthew North and Carina van Olm wanted to create a "critical response to the poor design practices that pervade the mass housing industry. Our intent is to advocate for a more thoughtful approach to residential design that improves the quality of our daily lives and reduces our impact on the environment". Slow home design strives for a more "considered calm and intuitive" approach to residential design.
The primary goal should be to meet the design criteria in the most space efficient way possible while being creative. The next meeting will be to review the preliminary design which typically consist of the floor plans without all the construction details the front elevation and the plot plan showing the house located on the lot. This is the first time to really know if you are on the same page as your designer. That is why the due diligence was so critical. Hopefully any revisions will be minimal but most importantly none will cause a compromise to the design.
