Sustainability in architecture has been popularly linked to concepts of conservation of non-renewable energy resource through use of renewable energy source, energy efficient technology, climate responsive architecture, recycling of materials, etc.However looking at architecture as a social technology, sustainable architecture cannot neglect the socio-cultural aspects. Therefore, in our search for sustainable settlement we should see to that we don’t negate the requirements of the people or the culture. Integration means to bring together all different elements necessary to create a whole. An integrated development for sustainable housing should be inclusive of social, economic, environmental and technical aspects of development. This paper looks at some built forms old and new in small town of Barkur and Udupi with the spaces of the town to study the aspects of sustainability as a whole, ingrained in the settlement.
