Ecovillages, are designs for communities who wish to live independently and in harmony with the environment.
Residences, community buildings and working sheds can be designed with a rustic or traditional farming look. You could also have a cultural theme architecture or an exquisite modern architectural design. We present the best ideas for your site and location, for you to choose.
Viasolare also provides consultancy to help you to choose the land which has the most favorable conditions of solar orientation and sun allowance, for you to build an ecovillage which can become more efficient in production of energy, food and environmental preservation.
Whatever you decide, we will propose your buildings with a passive solar design approach, which can include renewable energy solutions and natural resources. So, your ecovillage can become detached from other urban networks.
You can build a community which has its own ethical principles, made by people who want to have a peace of mind to live and raise a family in a healthy and safe environment, to have their children growing up in an place where they can learn to respect nature and be aware of how to become self sufficient for their own future.
How good it would be...
If we could live in a place
which would be shaded,
and feel fresh, in summer...
At the same time,
it would be sunny,
warm and cozy,
in the cool days...
How good it would be…
If this type of place,
would be cheaper to run...
It would be even better,
if we could have all these things,
using natural resources,
to live in harmony
with the environment!
The system is a small scale farming which was first developed by Bill Mollison in Australia.
"The word itself is a contraction not only for permanent agriculture but also of permanent culture, as cultures cannot survive for long without a sustainable agricultural base of land use ethic." (Mollison,B. "Introduction to Permaculture", Tagari Publications, Tasmania, Australia, pg 1, 2000.)
Permaculture is ideal for ecovillage projects because they are proposed for small community settlements, integrating sustainable architecture with green energy, food production and waste recycling.
Users can have a closer contact with the environment and use natural resources to become self sufficient.
Now, you can!
ViaSolare can do
such a design for you.
Ecovillages, rely on the principle of sharing community living and efforts. It can provide the opportunity for people to live together under the same values and principles of sustainable lifestyle by sharing the load of work and responsibilities.
As these projects are developed to suit living and working spaces with water management, energy harvesting and food production areas, ecovillages, can provide a strong sense of community power and a reliable living source.
We are what we eat and those who are able to produce their own GM and toxic free organic food, have better chances to live a healthier and happier life.
Plantations can be planned to be associated with animal support for production and waste recycling management.
By producing their own food, people can also save money due to rising costs of living and communities can exchange their products with other green farming producers.
