Project for a sustainable villa
Winner Tspline 2011 Design Competition
A house as a bone, a form without time that seems originates from prehistoric skeleton.
In reality, a more human way to live. The "deconstruction of the box" advocated by Frank Lloyd Wright becomes cavern, smooth space of living.
Expression of his aesthetics, the organic shape contains an efficient heart and a rational technology:
The core structures will be build in eco-concrete, a new technologies that will reduce GHG emissions associated with the production of Portland cement for use in concrete construction in a manner that is ecologically and economically smart.
To produce eco-concrete, the Portland cement in a concrete mixture is partially replaced with an optimum amount of supplementary cementing materials (almost part recycled), while maintaining or improving cost, concrete performance, and constructability.
The center of the building is its inside glass cavedio, a void with the aestethic of a Japanese winter garden, but, with his form, drive an intake effect that allows a natural ventilation of all the living spaces.
The roof design, with an efficient inclination in the south facade furnishes the ideal support to the the installation of solar panels, both passive, for the production of warm water, both active for the production of electricity.
The totality of the waters rain will be picked and carried in a reservoir for a domestic use through canalizations drawn in the wings of the roof.
