Ecovillage - Live/Work units

The Crescent - Cloughjordan Ecovillage believes that it is time to embrace a new economic framework, one that sees the economy as a subset of our global ecosystem, not the other way around. The transition to a post-carbon world. involves reducing consumption, producing local food and energy, investing in local economies, rebuilding skills, and preserving local ecosystems.

As well as offering an alternative lifestyle, the ecovillage offers the opportunity to work from this unique space. 'The Crescent' has a limited number of one to two or three bedroom live/work units with 30-70sq metres of work space on the ground floor. Work is due to commence shortly on phase 1 of the Crescent.

These multipurpose live/work units could be used for:

• Professional Services- designers,
architects, consultants etc
• Retail
• Therapy
• Crafts
• Art Space etc

The Crescent is designed by Gaia Ecotecture. Gaïa Ecotecture specialises in practical, innovative, sustainable design to the highest possible social, environmental, economic and technical standards. Since its inception 30 years ago the practice has focused on architecture that works with local ecological systems and has won a range of sector awards. Gaia Ecotecture is a member of Gaia International Network of Ecotects and has several international publications to its credit.

"The Crescent completes the North to South axis from the Lime Tree on Main St., with a sunny public space. The architecture of the buildings is an informal crescent, using natural materials and vernacular details. Passive-solar orientation aims to optimise daylighting and reduce overshadowing. The bioclimatic design creates a microclimate and shelter from the prevailing wind for useful forecourts and garden spaces". -Sally Starbuck, Gaia Ecotecture
