In an era in which we pay the consequences of the irresponsibility committed against historically established housing systems, it is up to us to seek creative solutions that represent a paradigm shift for people in this essential aspect of our lives and this is where Slow Life offers an innovative alternative that leaves no one indifferent.
The project, created in 2010, contains the word sustainability by flag and pursues the fusion between the coexistence of biological ecosystems (created by nature) and artificial systems creating biocompatible habitable structures that enhance a social lifestyle and integrated into an environment natural.
This initiative shares the ideology of the slow movement as it promotes shared social responsibility integrating single-family housing with apartments for English, community facilities, free schools, spaces for leisure and health and everything watered with a large component for environmental preservation by offering designs urban areas that integrate the construction and outdoor leisure areas in nature, minimizing the environmental impact.
As they declare, among their main objectives are the revitalization of rural areas and the implementation of new business models that activate the local economy, achieving food sovereignty and energy self-sufficiency without dependence on unsustainable external suppliers.
This slow housing model materializes through the access possibilities offered to different users, ranging from a transfer of use, to different types of property such as progressive or partial purchase. In addition all the houses will follow a uniform pattern, both architectural and interior, which reduces the environmental footprint and social differences.
The materials used in this type of housing will be mixed between 100% natural and 3D printed elements with a base of natural compounds that maintain the functionalities of natural stone.
In short, Slow Life is an opportunity for real change that defends coherence and maintains a strong value system that should serve as a model for the future of housing.
