In the beginning of this summer Kevan Trott (UK) visited our atelier. Kevan is a Chartered Surveyor and Chartered Environmentalist who owns the first Earthship home in Europe with official planning commission approval. It was built in Normandy, France in April 2007 by Kevan, Mike Reynolds and an Earthship Crew from Taos. The design was modified for a European climate and is seen as the Euro Model which has been used in Holland and Scotland. The French earthship is being used as a rental property http://www.earthship-france.com. Kevan responded to the invitation of the Art Center http://www.artcenter-slovenia.org/html/eng/news_as_eng.html which we are helping to design on the Austrian, Hungarian and Slovenian border to plan an Earthship - a radical sustainable housing.
