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 TINY-HOUSE

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.

EVENTS

IMBY is definitely a european project. Born from architects minds from France (Quatorze) and Spain (D.A.T. Pangea), IMBY received a honnor of merit mention at the competition «From Border to Home» organized by the Museum of Finnish Architecture and was presented at the Biennale di Venezia in 2016. Today developed in Paris, the project is presented and discussed through all Europe, during a variety of events.
 

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.
