The name ‘Thorb’ stands for ‘The House of Revolutionary Building’. Thorb is an initiative supported by BAM Wonen, Eigen Haard and AM.

With the Reinvent the Habitat challenge (reinventthehabitat.com), Thorb is calling on all those who have a unique, revolutionary perspective on building, materials and housing to participate. Absolutely anyone can join in!

Thorb will build prototypes of the three most promising concepts at ‘The Green Village’ in Delft in The Netherlands. Thorb will then determine what might be necessary to scale the concept up to large volumes.

Reinvent The Habitat aims to find new ways of living in your home. A radical departure from the traditional ways of thinking about homes and constructing homes. Namely, producing houses for half of the current cost, with 100% home happiness as the basic guiding principle. That’s our mission. So, do you have a good idea? Join the challenge by registering, using the “Join now” button. Once you submit your concept you will receive an email with a link to your personal page. This is where you set out how your idea contributes to the nine determining factors for home happiness…..

The Reinvent the Habitat registration period runs from 28 November 2017 until 31 January 2018.
