Whatever lifestyle and technology one brings to living on this planet, the only common sense requirement is that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. At Ionia, we build our homes like we grow food – using non-toxic materials that are locally and sustainably harvested whenever possible. Our building ingredients are straightforward and wholesome. Construction materials such as wood, stone, straw and clay produce simple buildings and reinforce the occupants connection to the outdoors. These homes require little energy to live in comfortably and nourish the health and well being of residents.
