More than 3 million people in Mexico live in remote locations which makes bringing them traditional electricity difficult, expensive, and sometimes impossible. Iluméxico , a Mexican social enterprise, plans to bring solar electricity to 300,000 of these people – that’s around 50,000 homes – by 2020. Iluméxico has joined Business Call to Action (BCtA) to commit to the new solar projects, which will also create 180 new jobs, 90 of which are designated for women and 70 of which will be located in rural areas.

Everything that comes from the studio of treehouse-master Antony Gibbon is fresh and stunning. And his latest design is no different. Called Inhabit Ground, the open-plan woodland cabin is slightly different than his previous Inhabit Treehouse, since it was designed to rest on the ground, yet maintains an intimate connection with the surrounding forest. Its symmetrical form affords a room on either side while the glazed central area allows natural light to flood the interiors.

Comments Off on Supersudaka’s Kiltro House is a Resilient Locally-Sourced Home in Chile

In Chile, mixed-breed dogs are called Kiltro, and these resilient animals are known to be survivors. Taking its name from these dogs, the Kiltro House was built under challenging conditions including a changing budget, design, and building permits, making it a true survivor in Latin America’s difficult building environment. Designed by Juan Pablo Corvalán and Gabriel Vergara from Supersudaka , the building stands within the long and narrow country’s central valley, and it was made from recyclable materials like aluminum, steel, glass, local stone and wood from naturally fallen trees .
