Project Tour :: LESS impact HOUSETM
There was a moment very early on in the planning of the house where we all realized this wasn't going to be just a place to sleep or prepare food; it was going to be an example for the community.
Since the naming of the project as the LESS impact HOUSETM it's never been referred to as "my" house or "their" house but as something un-owned, an experience to be shared, called by name. To enhance this shared experience ideology we thought of all the new eco-friendly materials, green products, and less impact corporations involved in green building and remodeling which should be shared with the public through the platform of the LESS impact HOUSETM. So we contacted companies and pitched the idea of partnering to create this example - the support was amazing.
