Who we are?
The team consists of architects, sociologists, geographers, urban planners, LEED and Passive house construction experts and other areas of expertise. Their education and expertise focuses on sustainable community development. We are putting in place all the specialists we need to build and create the best team to be effective for all our sustainable communities of the new era!
- Create self-managed communities, where everyone has access to shelter, locally produced foods and peace of mind in a nature-friendly, valuable and innovative neighborhood.
- Every person regardless of social status has access to a sustainable community, where food, shelter and peace of mind are part of their daily lives.
- Our role is to advise and guide a project to build towards sustainable development. Each construction project must follow three phases which are: Planning, Making and Exploitation.
- Our Company is non-hierarchical so the pyramid system is completely rejected. The opinion of each member counts and decisions are made in groups. Each task is subject to interdisciplinary and mutual aid.
