This short film about the Nauhaus Prototype Project, based in Asheville, North Carolina, was made for a class at UNCA.
About the project:
The first Nauhaus has been designed and construction started begin in May of 2009. We call it a prototype because it’s the first project in which we are combining all aspects of the Nauhaus vision: the highest possible level of energy efficiency, low-embodied energy non-toxic (“natural”) materials, impeccable indoor air quality, sustainable water management, indoor and outdoor living, urban infill, on-site energy production, and an abundant edible landscape brought together to create a model of urban sustainability. In addition, this project will provide valuable data for others in the green building movement because we will performance monitor the home for several years to compare theoretical to actual performance.
The Nauhaus Prototype Project is a collaboration between Nauhaus Design, Mosaic Realty and Eco Concepts Development.
