DOM(E): Sustainable Geodesic Prefab for Any Location

DOM(E): Sustainable Geodesic Prefab for Any Location | Wine | Scoop.it

No Rules Just Architecture has created DOM(E), an prefabricated off-grid home that is an eco-friendly and portable shelter. DOM(E) provides optimal living conditions no matter where it is located and is less expensive than traditional construction, while making the best use of natural energy resources.

 

DOM(E) can be folded for transport and assembled on-site. Its shape provides for natural ventilation while utilizing an underground duct system for heating and cooling. Solar panels connect to a hot water tank and rainwater collection systems can be made part of the drainage system that surrounds the enclosure.

One Patio House: A Contemporary, Efficient Prefab Project in Chile

One Patio House: A Contemporary, Efficient Prefab Project in Chile | Wine | Scoop.it

One Patio House turns a conventional program into a splendid composition of volumes. Positioned in the suburbs of Santiago de Chile, One Patio House materializes a simple and efficient answer to the unique climate and the desired relation between interior and exterior spaces.

Two volumes were developed following a set of opposite concepts: the ground floor volume expresses heaviness while the first floor refers to lightness. Openings also play a crucial role in the game of opposites: the ground volume has huge sliding windows on both long facades while the upper volume contradicts this rule by opening only the wider facades. When it comes to construction process, the difference is quite visible between the two: concrete for the ground floor area, prefabricated steel structures for the upper floor. The interior treatment respects this dual game by revealing the material properties behind each volume: smooth concrete for the flooring of social areas while wood planks are exclusively used in all private rooms. A black steel staircase establishes the necessary bridge between two opposite atmospheres belonging to a single and unique piece of architecture.
