The HólosHouse achieves a Circuclar Economy.

The HólosHouse demonstrates a very high level of compatibility with the Circular Economy. It does so in a variety of important ways. The idea of a Circular Economy has been put forth by the Ellen McArthur Foundation in collaboration with the RPS Group and Arup Associates.“The circular economy refers to an industrial economy that is restorative by intention; aims to rely on renewable energy; minimises, tracks, and eliminates the use of toxic chemicals; and eradicates waste through careful design.” (Ellen MacArthur Foundation).

Indeed the HólosHouse represents a radical departure from conventional sensibilities within the building arts. Its concept is inherently circular as it is derived from the perspective of a nature based design strategy. As such, it is a paradigm shift reflecting a lifetime pursuit of a rational alternative for building design and construction.
