Homes should play a part in protecting the environment. Based on technology, Designable makes customised eco-homes in sustainable buildings in cities possible, promoting zero-carbon lifestyles for up to an estimated 10% lower cost. +1.000 registered interest & 6 homes built in Valencia, with a Proptech App in development.
- Secured over €400k in signed contracts during 2019.
- Aim to disrupt a +€20bn market that has grown +30% since 2016.
- €350k invested to date from FFF & Business Angels.
- Led by two MBA Architects and a team with decades of experience.
According to the UN, cities are just 3% of the Earth's surface but they emit 75% of the World's greenhouse emissions. Homes have a huge impact, as buildings and cars are responsible for 42% of those emissions.
That's why, in 2017, MBA Architects Pablo Bertolín and Andrés Perales founded Designable, a new way of creating homes, based on technology and focused on people & the environment.
Its buildings use renewable energy, zero-CO2 materials, and are built in city centers, reducing car use and helping owners enjoy a near-zero carbon-footprint lifestyle.
Designable is developing an App that aims to minimise the middleman and see the final price after customisation, giving people the power to plan their future eco-homes.
Step by step:
- 2018: 1st building & 6 homes delivered and fundraised €350K from an Impact & Real Estate BA.
- 2019: 2nd building & 5 additional homes sold (will be finished 2021), team grew to 7, media coverage including The New York Times, signed €+400K in contracts and +1K interested people.
- 2020: 1 of 3 buildings planned for this year is already half sold and 8 FFF&BA have trusted by investing €150K in this round.
Aiming to disrupt a real estate market, estimated at €+20bn in Spanish capitals. Raising additional funds for talent, marketing and to launch the App by 1Q2021, helping more people to live in a custom home that actively protects the environment.
Designable stands for people caring for the environment, who seek excellence and are dissatisfied with old-fashioned Real Estate ways. Just like us.
