When designing this center, we asked ourselves and the land how we could create a space that was harmoniously integrated into the natural ecology. Some sustainability elements of Suan Sati were significantly more time consuming, more expensive, or frankly not as effective when compared to conventional methods. Nonetheless, we believe it is our duty to coexist within nature’s perfect framework rather than dominating it for our gain. Furthermore, we strive to leave this planet better than we found it. That is a lofty and idealistic goal, and we don’t always get it right. However, that doesn’t stop us from experimenting with both new and proven methods to show that a different way is possible. Below are a few highlights of our sustainability systems.
