Our Vision

We envision – and will contribute to – an imminent future where all homes are sustainable, healthy and affordable.

Imminent

While policymakers make promises about reducing emissions and stopping climate change, the construction market is slow to adapt. Changes must come fast if society is to stop climate change in this generation.

Sustainable

Currently, we need more than three times the land area available on earth to sustain our society. Homes should be designed so that the ecological footprint of its residents is neutral or better.

Healthy and Comfortable

Designing homes with comfort and health in mind ensures that people will want to live in them. In addition, the homes should provide a healthy indoor climate and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Affordable

More often than not, what limits a technology’s availability to the general market is its cost. By improving efficiencies in materials, time and energy, these new homes should be no more expensive than a normal home.
