“Truly Green Architecture: Earth Bermed with Living Roofs for low maintenance, quiet, safe and very long lived buildings.

The Elements of the housing designs are:
– Compound curve ferro-cement shells, clustered and buried behind a retaining wall.
– PAHS, (Passive Annual Heat Storage) water proof earth umbrella to moderate tempurature.

We will make our homes in nature, with an abundance of high quality, delicious food, surrounded by our family and good friends. Although mindful of our ecological footprint, our target lifestyle is not one of suffrage or lack, it will be to capture what is priceless.

These eco-villages will consist of single family homes, multi-unit dwellings and the central feature and focus, the commons. The commons comprise the majority of the lands, creating a large greenbelt, making the park/farm the core of the project. These commons will feature a community house (kitchen, dinning room, theater, swimming pool, hot tub, floatation tank and guest rooms.)”
