Building a house has evolved over centuries from providing rudimentary shelter, through increasing personalisation, to the sophisticated multifunctional buildings of today. These building can be designed to minimise visual impact on the environment and on global resources, in both their construction and day-to-day running.

Design considerations were given less attention, but now design processes have evolved to more actively consider the needs of the users, to provide housing spaces which are both functional and pleasant spaces to be.
