We are the only species on the planet to have evolved away from building round ‘nests’ and this is surprisingly not due to practicality.
Early civilisations all embraced the idea of living in the round, and many self sufficient communities across the globe still do to this day.
The benefits of this building shape are not only ecological and financial, but also psychological.
Circular structures are more energy efficient and they use 30% less resources to build than rectilinear buildings having the same floor space. Therefore their construction depletes far fewer natural resources.
It has also been well documented that such round abodes create a sense of calm and wellbeing, hence the already huge popularity of Tipis and Yurts.
Why not come and experience the ‘Feel Good’ factor for yourselves!
