Coffee Break: Benton Park West Tiny House ProjectVirtual Event via Zoom
This Tiny House Project is currently under construction in the Benton Park West neighborhood in the City of St. Louis. It is planned to be an environmentally regenerative and one-of-a-kind project. It's being build on what was once a vacant lot, purchased through the St. Louis City Land Revitalization Authority (LRA). This livable home will use energy saving building concepts such as radiant heating, solar power collection, rainwater collection, and passive heating and cooling concepts. The building itself, inspired by the work of Bob Cassilly, will be created from mostly reclaimed materials. The style will be a unique expression that keeps the historic aesthetic of the neighborhood in mind. Building a 420 square foot house on a 7,000 square foot lot allows space for large permaculture and vegetable gardens.
