Affordable, elegant, eco-friendly homes delivered internationally—any size, any style, anywhere in the world.

Lack of affordable housing is a serious problem around the world, and it’s been Adia’s focus for almost a decade now. When our “$12,000 Green Dream Home” (MCDhouse) made international news in 2009, floods of emails came in from across the globe. It seemed to give people hope. It made young people who can barely afford to rent leap at the thought of owning their own home. It made families with children dream of healthy, all natural housing. It delighted the elderly looking for small elegant homes to down-size into in retirement. It perked political interest on multiple continents. An ultra-affordable, eco-friendly house seemed to strike a chord in everyone.

Greenhouse Botanical Garden in Grueningen, Switzerland by idA

Article source: idA 

The new pavilion at the botanical garden at Grueningen relates strongly to its context. The design was inspired by the surrounding forest, not the built environment. Both the formal vocabulary and the structural concept derive from nature. The pavilion is conceived to harmonize with and expand the forest.

172 Social Housing Building in Sarriguren by Alfonso Alzugaray

November 10th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Alfonso Alzugaray

We want to raise the inner lane to the category of “reason” of the project. In order to do this, besides the compositional order decisions, we force the access to the houses through this space, qualifying it and generating in this way activity and relation and justifying in our opinion the design of this street.

Rest Hole in the University of Seoul, South Korea by UTAA

November 10th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: UTAA

The first floor of the dormitory in University of Seoul was originally an empty parking lot. An area enclosed by columns that supported the main office of the building, people would use the area only for smoking and storing bikes. The place was far too dark and inefficient and further desperately needed to be remodeled. In collaboration, the architectural students of the University of Seoul (Lee Sang-myeong, Ha Ki-seong, Baek Jong-ho) and UTAA designed a solution that would become much more than a simple rest area.
