ENVIRONMENT

sunriseLiving without walls is an Inspiration to anyone wanting to create their own sustainable environment and live a guilt free life, enjoying fresh air rather than air-conditioning, and prefers rich natural cottons rather than silks.

The bioclimatic design of the tented villas ensures maximum comfort and uses little energy. Cool air harvested from underneath the deck or bed, cross ventilated spaces and double roof ventilation system. All materials are recyclable including the high quality custom made powder coated metal frame.

The tented Living Space in Nature sets an example for sustainable living and puts into place the natural elements, water wind and sun to create the energy necessary to survive deep into nature and offers a comfortable and luxurious lifestyle, protect you from Nature when it strikes with rain wind heat or cold, and are a safe haven when the earth quakes.

Living Without Walls: Leading the way to a sustainable future

  • Renewable tent parts can be ordered and easily replaced and fixed.
  • Cooling/heating, light and water can be generated directly from nature’s water wind and sun independent off the grid.
  • Textile panels can generate solar power and rainwater is harvested from the roofs.
  • Cross ventilation and other passive energy savings throughout the building.
  • Integrated cooling system, which making the conventional energy-guzzling air conditioner obsolete.
  • The tents are made from galvanized steel, and steel has the ability to be recycled without the loss or degradation of its inherent material properties. The building standard accounts for embodied energy and the recyclability of materials in their definition.
  • A 1200 sq. ft. or 112 m2 steel framed home will use recycled steel of 7 scrap cars, compared to 50 trees (or 1 acre of forest) for the same wood frame home and provides a superior alternative to traditional building materials.
  • Superior strength-to-weight ratio. The hurricane panels protect the tent from strong winds up to 125 mph. Our tents in the Bahamas survived hurricane Sandy.
  • No building permit needed if not for commercial use.
  • Insect damage resistant. Steel is impervious to termites.
  • Earthquake resistant.
  • Fire resistant. Metal structures that are more fire resistant than those built with wood.
  • Allergen-free, mold-free and toxin free.
  • Go deep into nature with off the grid in comfort and style.
