At Terra Purna we like to experiment and investigate. One of the ways we do this is through sustainable building.

We are interested, primarily, in bioclimatic architecture concepts and techniques. We aim to build passive houses, or other small constructions, using natural materials whenever and wherever possible. When natural materials are not possible we look to reuse materials, and when this is not possible we source materials locally. We challenge ourselves to balance functionality and aesthetic.


In the concept of sustainable housing can fit a variety of perspectives: passive architecture, natural and local materials, sustainable energy systems, local waste treatment, indoor air quality, housing geobiology, low cost, etc. The integration of all these aspects of the sustainability of a house makes it an integral house, a concept where we focus, in which we emphasize the reuse of materials in order to produce constructions free of financial surrealities and banking slavery.
