Regen Maui is dedicated to leading the design and build of Maui’s first Living Building Challenge-certified affordable home. We aim to showcase the feasibility and importance of creating healthy living spaces for occupants and the community, homes that nurture and restore our environment rather than deplete it. By spearheading this initiative, we aim to redefine the norms of home construction on Maui and demonstrate a regenerative and resilient approach that inspires a positive ripple effect in our community and beyond.
HOMES THAT HEAL
What Differentiates a Living Building from a Conventional Design?
Let’s construct homes that…
honor and embrace cultural heritage and sense of place
foster food security
obtain all energy needs from the sun
capture and store carbon
exclude toxic materials
generate zero waste
create healthy indoor environments
stimulate local economies
uphold fairness and justice
embrace aesthetic beauty
inspire and motivate
Phased Approach to a Regenerative Community
Living Building Challenge
On August 8, 2023, Lahaina experienced a catastrophic fire that resulted in the destruction of over 2,000 homes, the displacement of more than 6,000 individuals, and the tragic loss of over 100 lives. This calamity highlights the critical importance of how we build our homes. The sight of survivors, dressed in hazmat suits and respirators, sifting through the hazardous ash of their former homes, underscores the crucial role of the materials used in home construction.
Envision a future where every home contributes positively to the well-being of our communities and our planet, where each home embodies biophilic design.
This is truly what ‘good’ looks like.
