From sewage disposal, to energy supply, to the new industry standard for Tiny Houses
During NEW HOUSING from 30 June to 2 July, numerous experts will explain everything worth knowing about Tiny Houses. These are some of the highlights.
Some highlights of the Forum
On 30 June, Dr. Andreas Kämpf will speak on the topic of wastewater disposal from 1 pm. This is often difficult in Tiny Houses. Often there is no direct connection to a sewage system. Therefore, decentralised solutions such as separation or composting toilets and constructed wetlands are often used for local treatment. Easier than connecting a Tiny House to the public sewage treatment plant is the use of pressure drainage systems. With these, the drainage of tiny houses can be realised with much less effort. Dr. Andreas Kämpf from Jung Pumpen will explain exactly how the process works. From 5 p.m. onwards, Marc Spieser from Aquatiris will present the PHYTOTINY and wastewater treatment systems for individual housing concepts in his lecture.
The creation of affordable housing will be the topic on the first day of the festival from 3 pm. Then Vanessa Wenk from Tinymalisto will explain how your own four walls can become a reality. Wenk has been a real estate expert for over 13 years and was the managing director of Immowenk.
Live Podcast on Day 2
The Forum will start with a premiere on the second day. Caro and Chris from "tinyon" will record an episode of their podcast live on stage from 10 am. The two will reflect on their own path to the Tiny House and give valuable tips and impulses on what interested parties should pay attention to. Already in the run-up, they both recorded an episode with NEW-HOUSING project manager Ramona Jonait (german).
It has recently been published, and from 12 noon on 1 July Martin Zeller will explain the new industry standard for tiny houses on stage. In his lecture, the designer and standards expert will show how it was possible to create a standard for the construction of Tiny Houses for the first time. The talk will cover the most important requirements for responsible construction and more.
Ilka Mutschelknaus will be on stage from 2 pm. The qualified building biologist and sustainability consultant will say how a Tiny House can be built completely sustainably and how Tiny Houses can be promoted as part of the New Housing class.
Tiny Houses in trees
Starting at 11 a.m., Anne Kozlowksi will talk about finding the dream plot for your own mini house. The speaker will tell builders what to look out for when searching for a site, what regulations need to be observed and what aspects should be considered when planning efficiently in a small space.
From 2 p.m., Martin Zeller will talk about an unusual topic: Tiny Houses in trees. Among other things, he will ask and answer the question: What would it be like if, when building plots are made available, the areas are not cleared but the naturally grown stock of plants is preserved? The designer and planner will present different types of tree houses and use pictures to demonstrate the efficiency of Tiny Tree Houses.
Max Milde from Vagoon House Europa will close the forum at 5 pm. He explores the question "Have we become the modern slaves of the real estate industry?" and says "how the dream of owning your own home is hardly realisable anymore and what Tiny Houses have to do with it".
