In Darma we are sustainable architecture enthusiasts. It’s a smart move and a way to coexist with the planet and our consciousness. To built and live making the most of natural resources without exploiting them, minimun consumption, maximum use and all that, without leaving aside the innovation and aesthetics.
We leave you with some of the projects we love the most.
Finca Bellavista: Highflying Treehouses in Costa Rica
Erica and Matt Hogan made their dream come true. This treetop neighborhood is still growing and there has been a lot of progress since its inception less than 5 years ago. Located in the south Pacific coastal region of Costa Rica, the comfy yet rustic private retreat welcomes people to get off the beaten path and explore the wonders of rainforest living.

Stretched Egg, passive house in the UK
It’s not easy to find spare space for new eco-neighborhoods, so Evgeni Leonov Architects designed a series of narrow egg-shaped homes that extend from the historic Trent Villa in Nottingham. Considered to be one of the most energy-efficient forms found in nature, the egg shape served as the main inspiration for the urban regeneration project, which is designed to meet passive house requirements.
Blue Forest’s Beautiful Eco-PERCH Treehouse
Featuring natural materials and an organic form, the eco-PERCH will fit amicably within almost any environment, creating a harmonious balance between contemporary living and nature. But best of all? This perch can be assembled on site in just five days!

HOUS.E+ a self-sustaining home for the near future.
HOUS.E+ is a concept that relies on geothermal energy for efficient heating and cooling in Vancouver. Rammed earth walls made from soil excavated on site provide an eco-friendly enclosure while an aquaponics farm around the home produces fish and food. Topped with photovoltaic panels and lined with micro-hydro turbines in the walls, the HOUS.E+ is designed to produce more energy than it needs, sending the rest back to the grid.
