Natural-Built Tiny House Incorporates Biophilic Design And A Living Roof

Home Design - Tiny Homes

Biophilic design is a term which refers to the connection between our built environment and the living world around us. It speaks to our innate love of nature, our biosphere and connection with living systems. This tiny home has been designed to incorporate elements of biophilic design and natural building to create a home on wheels which is beautiful, natural and healthy to live in, proving that a tiny house can truly be capable of having a big positive impact. \n\nIf you enjoy our videos, please consider supporting us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/livingbig\n\nWalker and Heather were inspired to create a home which incorporated their love of nature and passion for living a low-impact lifestyle, and together with builder Ben from Healthy Tiny Homes in Vancouver, they constructed their ideal tiny house which is now situated in their urban back-yard in Portland, Oregon.\n\nFind out more about this tiny house and others on our website: https://www.livingbiginatinyhouse.com/natural-built-tiny-house-incorporates-biophilic-design-and-a-living-roof/\n\nAdding to the biophilic design elements, the home also includes some really interesting features, such as a living roof where the roofline has been designed to follow the Fibonacci curve and mimics the design of a leaf. Adding a living roof to a tiny house is quite an achievement, and Walker admits that it’s a bit of an experiment.\n\nTo find out more about this tiny house, you can visit Walkers website, where he blogs on the topic of regenerative architecture and tiny house design. http://tinylivingbuildings.com/\n\nTo find out more about healthy tiny house building, check out Ben’s website here: http://tinyhealthyhomes.com/\n\nIn this video tour, Walker mentions the Living Building Challenge as an inspiration.
