This is an article that appeared in issue 3 of Vibrant Life; the previous incarnation of this magazine. I must admit, I’m still in love with the beauty and simplicity of this design. All the best to Pietro and his team.
The ecomo home is a compact home designed for modern, simple living in collaboration with nature. The design is based on basic sustainable, green design principles. The ecomo home offers a low-maintenance, modern, well-designed green housing alternative.
The ecomo home is a predesigned, prefabricated, customised home, offering numerous options in layout, size and finish. These custom designs allow unique solutions for unique sites and are sustainable, thoughtfully designed, modular systems built.
The ecomo home concept consists of three units:
These three elements can be arranged to the client’s need or some of these elements can simply be added at a later stage. This offers a big freedom to simply increase the size of the house when needed.
This guarantees high levels of quality as construction takes place at an off site factory and offers a truly streamlined process, as well as predictable timeframes and costs for our clients. Further, through factory-based construction, impact on the new home site is minimized.
The ecomo home’s modular design means that it can be situated anywhere with little damage to the environment. A modular home also affords construction efficiencies, virtually eliminating waste materials that are normally associated with home building.
Through the use of renewable solar energy, the ecomo house does not depend on electricity lines, thereby reducing the long-term cost of ownership and widening the range of potential building sites.
