A Good Place does not think of architecture in terms of dismissing the CO2 footprint in construction but in having a positive impact on the environment. It manifests the need to recover and recycle before building new and create a circular process between the original building and its extension.

A Good Place is visualized in a pilot housing building but the sustainable, inclusive and circular strategies in its design aim to be replicated endlessly over the consolidated old towns of our cities.
