Natural-Built Tiny House Incorporates Biophilic Design And A Living Roof 🌱

is a term which refers to the connection between our built environment and the living world around us. It speaks to our innate love of nature, our biosphere and connection with living systems. This has been designed to incorporate elements of and to create a home on wheels which is beautiful, natural and healthy to live in, proving that a can truly be capable of having a big positive impact.

Walker and Heather were inspired to create a home which incorporated their love of nature and passion for living a low-impact lifestyle, and together with builder Ben from in Vancouver, they constructed their ideal tiny house which is now situated in their urban back-yard in Portland, Oregon.

Adding to the biophilic design elements, the home also includes some really interesting features, such as a where the roofline has been designed to follow the Fibonacci curve and mimics the design of a leaf. Adding a to a tiny house is quite an achievement, and Walker admits that it’s a bit of an experiment.

  1. I’m really excited about this weeks video. 😊 I’m so passionate about regenerative architecture and our ability to make a positive impact on the world through good design and it’s wonderful to see so many regenerative design principles incorporated into this house. I hope you all enjoy this tiny house tour. Thanks to all for watching! With love, Bryce & Rasa

  2. With every collab between yourself & Rasa, I get the distinct impression we are going to be seeing your smiling mug around for many years to come Bryce lol.
    You two exhibit a dedication to searching for kinder ways to work with our planet and that can only ever be a good attitude.
    Loving each home more & more…..thankyou xx

  3. Lovely home. But I’m confused… It seems they designed it together and both live there, but he seems to always say “I wanted…” And never ‘we’. Not very permaculture mindset ‘me, me, me’, is it? Maybe they should think about covering their big house into a community/education center target than just renting it? They could even start getting others on the neighborhood to convert their gardens to micro permaculture homesteads!

  4. Negative comments aside, this guy knows what he is talking about, and what he wants from his perfect tiny home. The curved structure is gorgeous, almost ship-shaped (difficult to say!). I wouldn’t hesitate to live there in a heartbeat!!! And 2 lofts!!!!! Well done Bryce, one of the best.

  5. An interesting concept using the Fibonacci sequence for the roof, which then influenced the structure and interior of the house. The ceiling is beautifully crafted. The only issue I would have with it is that it is not very practical (for me anyways) in regards to the sleeping arrangement. I would constantly bump my head when going to bed and feel a bit too snug for my comfort. But looking at all the other tiny houses on this program I can not shake the impression that had the gentleman let his enthusiasm settle a bit to the background, they would have managed to use the space wiser without having to make design compromises. Like the window in the shower and the worktop in the kitchen in this instance. But I love the roof and the ceiling. It would be interesting to hear how it ages.

  6. This was really great Bryce! I appreciate you sharing this tiny house with new concepts and design. ( well, new for me). These people truly have brought conscious living to a higher level!! The living roof in and of itself is an inspiration!! Wow!! Now I want a composting toilet! 😊
