echo = eco + house.
Echo Living is the venture of multidisciplinary designer Sam Booth, and aims to promote elegance and efficiency in sustainable, small scale living.
Sam brings energy, ingenuity and over 30 years of experience in interior, product and building design to Echo Living. Realising a long held ambition to develop beautiful, sustainable, small buildings, he has now designed a series of bespoke, site specific projects, and off-grid, modular solutions for Echo Living, which he hopes will contribute to the conversation about the potential of environmentally responsible construction.
Using imaginative and innovative designs, Sam and his team of skilled craftsmen use high performance materials to create distinctive, sustainable small buildings of quality for a range of challenging sites.
Sam Booth's projects include architectural designs, and award winning interior and furniture designs, many of which have featured in international publications and exhibitions - an example of his Oritetsu folding funiture is owned by MOMA, New York. He has lectured in both the Interior Design and the Product Design Engineering departments at GSA and ECA and still has a keen interest in education. Co-author of books on school design and furniture design, Sam's wealth of design experience is combined in a collection of unique small buildings for Echo Living.
