Part of the book: Sustainable and Healthy Building Environments


Population growth implies a high demand for housing for the next few years. So, Hybrid buildings are crucial to driving healthy building environments. The article aims to suggest strategies for hybrid buildings to drive healthy building environments. It developed the research method in three key steps. First, the theoretical step was a literary review using the PRISMA method. Second, an analytical framework was done that identifies three research constructs: hybrid buildings, healthy building environments, and green design. Finally, the result was a driving strategy to be applied in hybrid buildings that give opportunities to build healthy environments.

Keywords: hybrid buildings, healthy building environments, green design
