How We do it ?
1. INHOUSE PACKAGING
All house elements are ordered from supplieres and placed to the one containers.
2. ONE TRANSPORTATION
Thanks to the one container concept, we are delivering all the SOLACE elements in only one transportation. This is saving both time and money of our customers.
Carbon Dioxide Output = P x S x E x C
P = population
S = services used by people
E= energy needed to power those services
C = carbon dioxide created by that energy
Buildings cause a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions, mainly CO2, altering our planet?s climate. They account for around:
40% of total energy consumption in Europe
36% of CO2 emissions in Europe
29% of total electricity demand in Europe
The increase of Global population and Consumption accelerates climate changes. By offering SOLACE, we would like to tackle climate change by offering low carbon housing.
Solace house energy consumption equals to 1/10 of energy used in a typical European house and energy is generated onsite. Therefore, SOLACE house can reduce greenhouse gases emission causing global warming.
Many construction materials are based on fossil fuels or carbon intensive, this is the reason why we replace it by wood. This is why we love wood and we decided to use certified wood as a main material at SOLACE house.
Sustainability is taken care on each stage of SOLACE house process:
the design phase
manufacturing of the elements
to provide sustainable living
Based on recent MIT Ph.D. Matthew Rognlie studies (LINC), shows, that housing is major factor in widening the poverty gap around the world. Creating new concept of housing market with affordable houses for all can bring more equality around the world. By bringing SOLACE, we want to make housing accessible to many.
The houses are one of the biggest sources of expenses – an average European person spends on housing around 30% of her/his disposable income.
Our goal is to create a house that changes the paradigm of it from being a cost to being an investment. This means the house can create income coming from energy generation and it can even repay itself during the 25 years of usage, depending on the market.
Rising population in cities with higher rents and land prices ? Europe is facing a challenge. One response – tiny houses provide a home to occupants who are ready to adapt to new way of living.
Recent Cattela market tracker (Link) have proven, that micro-housing is new housing alternative that is blooming not only in the United States but also in Europe.
It is a potential alternative to the current dwellings having potential to lower housing costs in changing European housing market.
Who are we ?
We believe that as a society we can live in a more sustainable way to reduce our impact on the planet and reduce inequality – to bring better life to us all. SOLACE’s mission is to develop a future-oriented, well-designed, energy positive, sustainable housing, which is affordable and accessible for all.
