	  abstract     = {In order to encourage the construction of green homes
(GH) in Malaysia, a simple and attainable framework for designing
and building GHs is needed. This can be achieved by aligning GH
principles against Cole-s 'Sustainable Building Criteria' (SBC). This
set of considerations was used to categorize the GH features of three
case studies from Malaysia. Although the categorization of building
features is useful at exploring the presence of sustainability
inclinations of each house, the overall impact of building features in
each of the five SBCs are unknown. Therefore, this paper explored
the possibility of quantifying the impact of building features
categorized in SBC1 – “Buildings will have to adapt to the new
environment and restore damaged ecology while mitigating resource
use" based on existing GH assessment tools and methods and other
literature. This process as reported in this paper could lead to a new
dimension in green home rating and assessment methods.},
