The microclimatic ti'kaz or Tiny tropical Reunionese house is inspired by the Reunionese Creole hut, the "kaz lontan", made of sheet metal and wood.
The microclimatic ti'kaz is designed to adapt to Reunion's multiple micro-climates which are linked to insularity and relief. It reacts differently depending on whether it is deployed in the heights, in the islets of the Cirque de Mafate, under the showers of the Cirque de Salazie or even in the dry savannahs of Saint-Paul.
The ti'kaz is made of local materials or easy to recycle / manufacture locally. Bamboo, wood, raw earth, basalt, palms, vetiver are all natural resources (and there are others) highlighted and used within the framework of this experimental project.
Ti'kaz is also an opportunity to promote local sectors of biosourced materials. The project will be carried out in partnership with local sectors and craftsmen and/or industrialists from Reunion.
