Speaking of an ecological house (also known as sustainable housing) we mean a structure and a process that is environmentally responsible and efficient management of resources throughout the building life cycle, including design, construction, use and maintenance, renewal over time and its subsequent dismantling more than possible.This requires close cooperation of the design team: architects, engineers, interior designers, landscapers and the customer in all phases of the project. The building with sustainability principles expands and complements the classical building with concerns about the economy, utility, durability and comfort, these concepts due on the current architecture.
