The Naturhus Concept
Tailor Made arkitekter have designed and developed the Naturhus Concept over several projects in an integrated collaboration with the consulting firm Greenhouse Living since 2013.
A Naturhus consists of 3 parts:
An eco-cycle system
The greenhouse creates a Mediterranean climate around the house with fantastic outdoor spaces. The greenhouse allows for a closed local cycle of plants that absorb the nutrients in the wastewater and turn it into fruits and vegetables. A Naturhus entails a luxurious living, low energy consumption and ecology in practice. The inhabitants is surrounded by natural materials, year-round flowering roses, wine, kiwi, apricot, figs, almonds and peach. The patios around the house are used from early March to late October. The greenhouse protects humans and the core house from rain, snow and wind and the insulated house can be built more easily and with great freedom.
The vision is a sustainable building that produces food, instead of waste. A house that generates energy instead of just consuming it and introduce reflection and learning about what you eat and what you flush down the drain. What you flush down comes back to your own eco-cycle system and into the tomatoes you eat for breakfast.
A sustainable architecture that promotes a truly sustainable lifestyle.
This is a Greenhouse Living project.
