ANAMAKOS

is an experimental, sustainable real-estate project in Providence, RI, centered around the ideas of:

  • zero waste

  • collaborative living

  • incremental development, and

  • sustainable transition design.

 

From May 2018-January 2019, I acquired, adapted, and experimented with different living models for myself and volunteer residents in a triplex in Providence, called Earthouse.

 

This space is currently an operational, rented living space in Providence, RI.

Earthouse

 

Earthouse is a triplex in Providence which has been sustainably updated to support a zero waste, ecologically conscious lifestyle.

The house features:

-A solar panel system that offsets more than 100% of electricity use.

-A garden with composting on-site

-A rainwater harvesting barrel.

-Nest thermostats

 

The location has a walker's score of 90, and a bike score of 94, and is located next to many food vendors and parks.

*Earthouse is located in Fox Point, on the colonized native lands of the Narragansett, Wampanoag, and Nehantic.

ROADMAP is an exploration of sustainable transition changes proposed for Earthouse.

DIS/RUPT is an alternative exploration of how the mechanism of capitalism is at play in Earthouse, and speculation on how to disrupt that mechanism.
