Making more sustainable choices when redecorating your home can boost your health as well as your eco-credentials
Sustainability is not a feature immediately associated with stylish design but that has been changing rapidly over the last five years or so.
Henning Voss started Provest Holdings, a boutique Hong Kong-based property developer, seven years ago and focused mainly on renovating older apartments in Central and Sheung Wan in a sustainable and sophisticated way.
Indoor air pollution is closely linked to allergies, asthma, respiratory infections and lung cancer. “You only have very limited control over outdoor air pollution but you have full control over what you put into your home,” says Voss. “By employing third-party-certified green building materials during construction or renovation, you practice source control, which is the first step towards achieving a healthier indoor living environment.”
