Berkeley Design Center carries an extensive collection of green products that promote a healthier environment in the home and on Earth.
To understand the role of Green Design, it is important to see how the term "Good Design" is changing the context of Architecture and Interior Design today. Essentially, good design in modern building practices refers to a heightened environmental consciousness and the knowledge of sustainable materials in designing and remodeling a home.
Building product manufacturers have demonstrated a new awareness of eco-friendly materials, energy saving fixtures and appliances and water efficient processes. There are now more ways to be sensitive to the environment while maintaining innovation and quality.
Materials in the home which are considered green should be renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic, durable and have low energy consumption. These collectively contribute to a more sustainable form of living.
