Small eco houses

Small eco-houses / Evergreen Collective / Trilingual edition

Increased environmental awareness, recent technical discoveries, as well as a return to traditional construction methods, such as orientation according to the sun, are leading many project owners to build small ecological houses.

This type of housing is the first step towards a more sustainable and responsible architectural policy.

Moreover, it is not only a question of using more natural building materials, of reducing energy consumption in an exemplary way and of avoiding polluting substances.

It is above all a question of creating small oases generating a higher quality of life, for the benefit of its inhabitants.

A host of examples show the architectural charm of ecological houses, whether they are made of stone, wood or cob.

The wide range of environmentally friendly materials allows architects to consider individual solutions for each project.

This book illustrates, thanks to the small ecological houses selected here, what is achievable in the field of sustainable construction.

It proposes concrete architectural alternatives. Long considered architectural curiosities, environmentally friendly ecological houses set the standards for tomorrow’s construction.

My wild nights the tiny house phenomenon

Published on 22.03.22 My wild nights: the tiny house phenomenon / Sylvie Pérenne / Edition Bookelis

Sylvie has everything plated. The comfort of a conventional life, his big house in the forest, his guy, everything except his job!

And she went to live in a van, alone, then equipped only with a hammock, in the Alsatian forests and mountains.

She tells us, with authenticity, this double life between her osteopathic practice during the day and her wild adventures at night. Until the discovery of the habitat of his dreams: a Tiny House …

Quickly, she sees in this tiny house her paradise.

We then embark with her in the construction of this unusual dream and yet within everyone’s reach, that of living in 12m2.

This exploration is not without questioning our lifestyles, our way of consuming, of cluttering ourselves with the useless and our link to nature.
