Basic Human Dignity

Habitat Designed Well

In biological terms, habitat refers to the natural environment of an organism. In architecture terms, we use habitat to describe a broader sense of man-made residential settings, i.e. places where people call home. We feel that the term habitat helps to emphasize the vulnerability of the built environment in relationship with the natural environment for humans. It emphasizes the importance of maintaining a balance of the ecosystem. We believe that a good home environment should provide easy and full access to clean air and water. It should promote a healthy lifestyle and should provide inspiration for spiritual health. For planners, architects, landscape designers, and engineers, the qualities of harmony, self-reliance, vitality, and sustainability are vital for the creation of new communities.
