Toward a constructive hospitality.
To build tiny-houses in backyards in order to host people in need, that's what IMBY is about. In My BackYard, in your backyard.
In My BackYard develops constructive hospitality : a tiny-house is built in someone’s backyard, in order to host a homeless person. Designed for people excluded from society (a refugee, a homeless woman...), the IMBY project is a path to integration, as it contributes to the elaboration of a personal project, thanks to a social and professional follow-up. IMBY eases to provide home, togetherness, while preserving intimacy.
IMBY develops a social mix principle : the project allows a house owner to host someone with a financial and social position more unstable than his/her own. Above all, by being incorporated within the existing urban fabric, the tiny-house fights urban sprawl and exclusion towards outskirts.
