Walden is a design and development agency for small, self sufficient and experimental architecture. Walden is lead by Lena en Laurens van der Wal. We believe in compact and efficient living to increase happiness and decrease our ecological footprint. It seems that in our current society gaining more en bigger goods is the most important goal of our existence. Fortunately, we were hit by a big crisis which woken us and opened the eyes of many to realise what truly matters. Namely the people around us, time to learn, time to play and the environment we live in. Therefore we work on small, bio based and self sufficient architecture.
