TINY HOUSES FOR 

 HOSPITALITY 

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.
 

THE PROJECT

WELCOME

A home and a social follow-up,
springboard to a successful insertion
for homeless people.

SOCIAL

Hosts ans guests share good moments,
while enjoying the intimacy provided
by two separate homes

ECO-CONSTRUCTION

A tiny-house made out of timber and other
eco-construction materials, 
for comfort and autonomy

TRAINING

The making of the tiny house is the time for a professional eco-construction training, and a community volunteering project.

 

THE ORGANISATION

Created in 2007, Quatorze is a non-profit organization, promoting, testing and spreading a social and solidarity approach to a resilient and agile city. As an architecture manufacture, it leads a variety of projects, from design to building, always gathering the three pillars of sustainable development.
Quatorze puts the people in the center of the projects. With a methodology we call "co-conception" and "co-construction", inhabitants become true actors and learn new skills in eco-construction. The organization works mostly with people with poor living conditions.
