To be off-grid means to be as low impact and as resilient as possible.

While we are firm believers in the grid and its future potential- there being economies of scale involved with power generation, water and waste management- some households cannot or do not want to access this infrastructure and therefore must rely on their own means.

On another level, to be off-grid embodies disconnection from the pressures of city living and a reconnection to nature; particularly rural self-sufficiency allows for a ‘detox’ from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. We recognise that these homes need to be as efficient as possible, and integrate the lessons learnt from these unique buildings across all of our projects.
