ABOUT US   

We are a collaboration of architects, designers, academics, builders, community organisers, sociologists and event specialists who do philanthropic work in the broader community.

 

We are a not-for-profit incorporated association based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. We also have a registered commercial entity that provides products & services.

Together we work to help inspire, educate, connect, and create the tools to build the kinds of sustainable communities the wider population would like to live in.

What is a 'Tiny House'?

 

Tiny Housing stems from an architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in smaller homes while better addressing affordable housing, minimilism, off-the-grid lifestyle,  while reducing environmental impact and in many ways helping people establish a better connection with others through a sense of communitas, nature and sharing economy.

The Australian Tiny Housing Association defines a Tiny House as "moveable dwellings up to 50m2* that are suitable for residential use. Tiny houses can be largely grouped into 2 categories: on wheels or on skids. (*for one dwelling, excluding if they are connected)"

What is a 'Tiny Village'?

We define a Tiny Village similarly to an Ecovillage; which the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) defines as an intentional or traditional community using local participatory processes to holistically integrate ecological, economic, social, and cultural dimensions of sustainability in order to regenerate social and natural environments; geographical locations may remain fixed sites similar to those of a caravan park, however communities may be transient or move as a mobile pop-up event, festival, convergence or special interest group like disaster recovery & regeneration, or a conference, so they naturally experience churn and dynamic liquidity helping people rediscover their natural sense of community, as well as helping people find their tribe.
