Starting from the results of the COST RESTORE research, the paper promotes the adoption of a new methodological approach to sustainable design capable of ensuring the energy efficiency of a building and the psychological well-being and health of its users by re-establishing harmony with nature. More specifically, it presents some of the most innovative technological envelope and system solutions used to create restorative environments, identifying existing connections between the design and implementation of regenerative building systems. The aim is to define a project idea that increasingly features typological and morphological contaminations of the environment.
