Snowdrop Core Values (1).jpg

Welcome to Snowdrop

 

 

holistically sustainable housing from the ground up

 

We are a multidisciplinary firm working to design modular homes with exceptional levels of insulation, providing cost effective, net-positive buildings using locally sourced and sustainable materials.

Broken up into several stages that focus on providing sustainable, Shelter, Energy, Water, Health, and Agriculture, Snowdrop is focused on creating a synergy between these systems, enabling communities to thrive without external intervention.

We are currently in the prototyping stage and hope to begin construction on a 240qft or 22.3sqm prototype by next March 2019. To learn more about our adventure and to follow our journey, check out our brand new site below!

we are planting the seeds for a thriving, connected future.

Flower-as-Snowdrop-1440x900.jpg

The blossoming of the snowdrop flower is a sign that winter is coming to an end and spring is right around the corner. Able to thrive in cold environments, snowdrops produce their own heat, melting the surrounding snow for others to grow. The snowdrop has become a symbol of hope, rebirth and a bright future, the belief that a new warmth will enter our lives.

The Snowdrop Movement aims to enrich the lives of disaster victims and communities in developing countries by working to create a wholesome and sustainable synergy between key aspects of life.

together we are bringing change to the industry while ensuring a positive impact on the environment.

join the movement today and let's plant the seeds for a sustainable future

Everybody can do something! We are entering a world of peak oil, peak water, peak phosphorus; a world that is globally interconnected yet ecologically impoverished. A world with seven billion people and counting. A world where every single major ecological system is in decline and declining exponentially. A world where global temperature increase means shifting rainfall distributions, acidified oceans, and potentially catastrophic sea-level rise. This has to change.

We must work together to redefine what it means to be a community. This idea is integral to revivingreplenishing and restoring our relationship with the world and it is imperative that we work to preserve it. These are problems that far exceed the capacity of any one person to solve. That’s why we’ve started a movement.

If you like what Snowdrop is all about, spread the word by sharing this page or telling others. If you’d like to volunteer or work for us, stay tuned for opportunities to get involved. If you want to help us fund the implementation of tangible solutions on the ground, consider donating below. Whatever your capacity is, do that. Work with us and make a lasting impact on our world.

All profits will go into research, implementation or the purchase of equipment that aligns with project goals to create sustainable solutions for disaster relief or communities of developing countries.

As always, if you have any questions, suggestions or comments, We would love to hear from you through email to rikysongsu@gmail.com.

Thank you...
