This seemingly modest 940 square foot residential ADU design for a homestead in Tigard is also a very BIG idea for inspiring the emergence of a better world. The vision for this project combines numerous cutting edge influences, including a full range of permaculture-related design choices. These include strawbale design in an ergonomic cylindrical form, extensive water catchment systems, passive solar heating and cooling systems, PV electric arrays, earthen floors, and all of it integrated with a south facing propagation greenhouse inspired by the earthship design concept.
We design beautiful and sustainable places that bring people together in community. We are absolutely committed to sustainability, while respecting the needs and priorities of all the individuals, families, and communities with whom we work and play.
