The Pop-Up e-home concept is designed such as a response to housing and climatic crisis in Vietnam. For a living “smartly connected to Nature” and “a smart eco-house connected to Nature“. Construction cost is about 5,000 USD for the affordable E-home.
With rapid urbanization, a sluggish economy, and a worsening climate crisis, we urgently need more sustainable practices and buildings, in re-inventing another way of living. The Pop-Up e-home is a new concept, a new way of building & living closer to Nature, more respectful to our planet Earth, with lower ecological footprint. In Vietnam, there is a high demand for affordable housing, healthier living and more energy saving house.
Pop-up meaning easy installation any place, any where and any context, especially in unoccupied space or in countryside free space. E-home meaning an eco-friendly living and modern lifestyle home. We propose 3 types of E-home:
E-home type 1: It is an affordable tiny passive house design , with flexible interior living space, conceived from renewable wooden materials + recycled waste materials, and using renewable rain water.
E-home type 2: It is an urban farm e-home concept, where the resident can have his own self-agriculture, his self-safe food, bringing green and farming back to the urban context of megalopolis outskirt.
E-home type 3: It is a new modern retreat in Nature, living peacefully with Nature like in a safe cocoon, but with high-tech technologies & connected to the World. A zero energy house (photovoltaic panels + battery + ice-tank on roof) and very low ecological footprint, this construction system have been designed to be totally removable and reusable.
