tiny house Still all the rage, especially in remote areas as people want a life off the grid. As such, the team at ZeroCabin created the Krul, a prefabricated cabin kit that can be erected anywhere. a. while leaving minimal site impact Important to the team, the project’s emphasis is on educating consumers and encouraging change in consumption rather than accommodating every possible comfort of residents. As ZeroCabin says, “We’re not selling a small looking nice cabin, we sell a lifestyle.”

To take this idea home, the ZeroCabin team works with consumers to identify and make the most of the resources available at the location site. If sunlight is limited, they focus on ways to reduce the need for light. If there is a water shortage in the construction location, the goal becomes to find ways to reduce water consumption. ZeroCabin believes that the real answer to sustainable architecture is to embrace human behavior. “We aim to change how our civilization lives by changing the question, ‘What do I want to buy to live comfortably? ‘What do I have here to live comfortably?'” explained the company. Its designs are inspired by trees, adapted to the resources they have available.
Cabin krul stands as an example by relying on rainwater alone, which is filtered to become potable water. After use, the water is filtered again to make it free of contaminants in the surrounding landscape. The system converts black waste into fertilizer to benefit the surrounding plants.
The heating system serves several purposes by allowing owners to cook and bake in the oven while heating water in a natural hot tub. powered by stove wood Gathered in the vicinity, eliminating the need for external fuel.
passive design Limits the need for heating through the use of building orientation to promote natural light throughout the interior. Carefully positioned vents provide a more passive system that supports temperature control. In addition, the entire timber frame structure is wrapped in SIP panels, filled with pulverized cardboard insulation, and the thermal windows are high-efficiency.
Designers Felipe Luer and Alejandro Otero said, “Our goal is to change how our civilization lives…[by building quality homes that are] made for that exact [location]. Our team first studies the land, wind and sun, latitude, orientation and slope and emerges a design accordingly, and once the design is deemed correct for that land, the human needs are integrated.
Even with a small environmental footprint, the Krul offers great comfort with three rooms, two bathrooms, a third-floor loft, kitchen, living room, and deck, all raised slightly above the ground Has happened.
The team is clearly passionate about living a more sustainable lifestyle, which they believe will be achieved through not just exchanging one energy source for another, but the way we think about resources. instead of changing. Zerocabin suggests buying local and growing Foods Reducing the energy requirement to produce the sun, wind or water around you, rather than sourcing it from another part of the planet, and focusing on the effects of commercial fishing, palm oil production and the destruction of the Amazon Giving those who harm the planet. An attempt to meet human consumption.
