We design and build self-sufficient homes
It’s important that from an early age, our children learn to take responsibility for their environmental impact. This space was built in collaboration with the community, co-creating with them and listening to their ideas and needs. This architecture was the result of a collaborative design that creates a heightened sense of ownership and identification, leading users to value and caretake the building. Natural and highly local materials were used for construction, like bamboo, adobe and wood. It was designed with curved and natural shapes, inspired by the way in which nature weaves its designs. Like all CASSA buildings, it has the integration of all the services with elements of sustainability; rainwater harvesting, water cistern for storage, pump for redistribution inside the house, solar panels, LED lighting, efficient stove, separation of gray and black water, family garden fed by gray water and an underground black-water treatment system.
