CBB Third Skin ROOur home our third skin

Our mission is to take care of the design of healthy living and work environments, and of renovations towards a better indoor climate. After all our house is our third skin, it gives us shelter and protection. Our house should be a home where body and mind can regenerate free from environmental stress.


The last century many chemicals have been introduced as construction materials, building practices have been changed, electrical power has become part of each house, and more recently wireless communication has been introduced rapidly. This resulted in many sick buildings, causing many chronicle ailments and allergies. It creates a climate where mayor and minor illnesses can flourish.




The Centre of Building Biology promotes the use of authentic, sustainable and natural building materials and constructions methods. By sharing information it aims to promote a building construction where a healthy living environment is given a high priority.

The centre intends to become a portal, to inform and connect towards the realisations of healthy habitats. The centre is located in Southern India, and wants to include issues related to our local and other Indian climates and cultures.
