4A- Micro Structures: Going Green by Going Small

Designers of high-performance buildings can view occupant space requirements as fixed, and work to minimize energy consumption per square foot. However, additional savings can be realized by downsizing the building footprint. Often, functionality can be maintained by sharing space among multiple activities. Advantages include reduced energy requirements, less building materials, and greater flexibility in siting, which can translate into significant cost savings. Compact structures are well suited for prefabrication and modular construction. Minimalist approaches appeal to environmentally conscious clients, who value sustainability, shared resources and self-sufficiency.
