SUMMARY

"Chiang Mai Ecohome" is a residential Ecovillage located in the Chiang Mai countryside and in easy reach of schools, hospitals and other amenities.
The community aims to bring together Families, Groups or Individuals that are interested in building a dream home within a common space while sharing resources and values.
The project is structured as a cooperative or social enterprise where the home owners are co investors and co creators.

What is an Ecovillage?

An ecovillage is a traditional or intentional community with the goal of becoming more socially, culturally, economically, and/or ecologically sustainable. An ecovillage strives to produce the least possible negative impact on the natural environment through intentional physical design and resident behavior choices.
It is consciously designed through locally owned, participatory processes to regenerate and restore its social and natural environments.

MASTERPLAN

Based on the idea of COMMUNITY, homes are arranged around a common shared green space.
 The general layout is an evolving design based on the choices made by the home owners.

ECO HOMES

The ecohomes are designed using green building techniques and materials and can be customized according to individual requirements.

Modular Flexi Hut

50-210 sqm

A combination of a concrete frame structure and elements of bamboo and earth bricks. The modular design can host multiple homes and allows for a flexible layout.

Eco Bamboo Hut

150 - 210 sqm

A round hut structure made of bamboo and earth. The design can be developed on 2 or 3 levels. 

Courtyard Home

180-300 sqm

A modern design made up of concrete, earth brick and bamboo surfaces allows for a flexible composition around an inner courtyard. 

SHARED FACILITIES

These are commercially run activities within the community space that can be of service to the residences but function independently

Clubhouse

Not the usual corporate style lounge, but rather a gathering point for the community combining a Cafe, Shared Office and Store where local products can be found. 

Activity Pavillion

An open space where activities and workshops for adults and children are hosted.  


Bio Pool

A shared natural swimming pool that is filtered organically rather than by chemicals, resembling the process by which aquatic plants clean ponds in nature.

PRACTICES

Sustainable practices adopted by the Ecohome community

Organic Farming

The shared farmland is managed by the  management and the crop is sold at cost price to the home owners. 

Water Management

The water pond acts as a reservoir for storm water and a natural filtration system for waste waters produced by the community homes. The purified water is used for irrigation of the shared green area. 

Waste Management

Sewage and waste are treated within the community using natural self-treatment processes that take place in the ground soil and water environment.

Composting

Food waste, such as banana peels, coffee grinds and eggshells are gathered for composting, a process by which wate is decomposed by worms and bacteria to fertilise soil. 

Solar Energy

Roof mounted solar panels can be integrated in the design to provide renewable energy to the community. 

Green Materials

Natural, locally sourced renewable materials such as bamboo, rammed earth, earth bricks and recicled hardwood are used for building the ecohomes.
