Green buildings and modern houses with underground structures

Modern architectural designs offering AC-free living spaces are one of new trends in residential architecture. While air conditioners create pleasant environment in living spaces, these home appliances increase the electrical bills. For those of us lucky enough to have an air conditioner at work and at home, the generated air is an easy comfort. However, air conditioning was not always a part of modern house design, and contemporary architectural designs can help reduce the heat and lower the electrical bills.

Air conditioning means more pleasant environment inside modern houses. Cool and inviting living spaces and offices improve our lifestyle. The need for the temperature control defines traditional architectural designs, adding thinker walls, high ceiling and attics to homes. The coast of air conditioning prevents people from building homes in extremely hot places.

Energy efficient temperature control will allow to move to the areas with very hot climates, and build steel and glass houses blending the contemporary style and sustainable design ideas and offering comfortable and pleasant living spaces and office interiors.

Modern architectural designs that are constructed underground create naturally cool home interiors. Not only is the sun stopped from entering the home interiors, but the earth that surrounding the modern houses is slow to heat up and cool down, making eco homes feel warmer in the cold months and cooler in hot seasons.
