For those envisioning their forever home nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of New Zealand, we understand your desire to create a residence that not only reflects your unique style but also embraces eco-conscious living. At Nixon Homes we believe one of the best ways you can do this is by designing an architectural home built to last. Building a home that will last for generations not only benefits your family but also has a positive impact on the environment. Here’s why:

Reduced Resource Consumption & Waste
Constructing a durable home means using high-quality materials and implementing long-lasting building techniques. This approach reduces the need for frequent repairs, replacements, and renovations, ultimately minimising the consumption of resources. By avoiding unnecessary waste and preserving valuable materials, you contribute to sustainable resource management.

Lower Carbon Footprint
Building an architectural home with longevity in mind helps to lower your carbon footprint. By reducing the frequency of construction and demolition, you minimise the energy and emissions associated with these processes. Additionally, durable homes often incorporate energy-efficient features, such as insulation, solar panels, and efficient appliances, which further reduce your overall energy consumption and environmental impact.

Conservation of Green Spaces
Constructing a home that lasts for generations encourages thoughtful land use. Instead of continuously encroaching on undeveloped areas, you can maximise the use of existing land by building homes that accommodate the whole family. This approach helps preserve precious green spaces and natural habitats, contributing to the overall health and biodiversity of the environment.

Overall, when building your new home one of the best ways you can build for a sustainable future is to design an architectural home built to last. You can do this in three key steps: choosing energy efficient appliances & windows such as double glazing, optimising your land use through architectural design, and opting for durable materials throughout your home. Not only does this save you time and money in the long term, but it will allow you to reduce resource consumption, lower your home’s carbon footprint and conserve land for future generations.
