About Us

Our Vision

We envision a world where everyone has access to a safe, sustainable and comfortable home.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make sustainable housing affordable through our innovative building concept.

The Problem

There is a large demand for affordable housing, but the traditional building sector cannot provide sufficient housing and has a devastating impact on the environment.

Our Solution

Easy Housing is a circular and carbon-negative building concept based on sustainably sourced timber. Our houses are safe and comfortable, resistant to natural disasters and climate-smart. The concept is standardised and scalable, providing a universal solution to the global need for affordable  sustainable housing.

Our Team

Wolf Bierens

Wolf Bierens

Easy Housing was founded in 2019 with the mission to make sustainable affordable housing accessible for everyone. Founder Wolf Bierens is an entrepreneurial engineer with a background in environmental technology and sustainable building. In 2019, Wolf was living and working in Senegal and observed the large demand for affordable sustainable housing in emerging economies. It was obvious that the traditional construction sector is not sufficiently able to provide adequate affordable housing, while having a devastating impact on the environment. For this reason, he decided to develop Easy Housing.
Wolf is also co-founder of the Dutch company Sustainer Homes which builds circular wooden homes in The Netherlands with its own sustainable modular building system. He was listed on the Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2017 and twice on the Sustainable Young 100 (DJ100) in The Netherlands, in 2016 and 2020.
