We propose you to discover the meaning of ecological design and how its features can be applied to a building project. Through this hour of consultancy, we will guide you in the world of natural materials and their benefit for your health and for the environment. During this time, you will learn about the meaning and the importance of permaculture, bioclimatism, humidity regulation, thermal insulation, thermal mass, greenhouse effect, holistic design, passive haus, solar passive design, building biology and many other features that can help you in the choice of your design.
For who: self-builders, project holders, architects, engineers, construction companies or anybody interested to develop an activity on ecological construction
When and Where: during the second week of each month in Tezekevleri (with appointment) or on Skype at any other time. A meeting at your place is also possible, then the transportation and accomodation fees will be charged on you.
How much: 100TL (+VAT) per hour
If you already have a project in mind and need more inspiration to be able to finalize it while avoiding common mistakes, sharing it front of a group of people having the same concern can help to decide on the soundness of your decisions. Because using natural materials for ecological buildings is something new, we propose you to gather together a small group of people that would be interested in getting grounded information on how to place the windows, how to orientate the building, how thick should be the walls, how much insulation is useful…
Each participant will have 30 minutes to present its project and ask its questions and then we will answer generally to all the questions or we will give the resources to find solutions when we don’t have the answers in hand. Through this group process, it will also be possible to build a community that can get the help of each other according to the knowledge of each project’s holder.

If you already have a project or are working on a project and would like to transform your project into an ecological project, we can help you to adapt your design by providing advice on different important fields:
- Adaptation to the land and land design (orientation of the building, position of the land, suitable land design and vegetation) according to the climate and your usage of the land and building.
- Transformation of the building to integrate solar passive building features, thermal comfort regulation, better usage of the natural light, sound protection… according to your way of life and the designed planned.
- Integration of natural materials (ready to use or to be prepared) in your design according to local resources, aesthetic and building usage.
- Holistic design and building/land management to take in account rain water harvesting, dirty water cleaning/reusing, waste management, exterior land usage…
