#48 Zero Energy in Geel, Belgium by Skilpod + UAU Collectiv

Saturday, January 28th, 2017

Article source: UAU Collectiv

The growing demand for and interest in new forms of living together inspired a Belgian entrepreneurial duo to develop the product Skilpod. A Skilpod is a mobile and modular housing construction that attaches great importance to its energetic properties but that is also always searching for progressive and diverse designs. By means of modular architecture Skilpod searches for a combination of flexibility and energy efficiency. The module is completely built and finished in the Skilpod-studio and subsequently transported and placed on the site. As a result the Skilpod is also moveable to a new location at a later time. The housing constructions are built out of a timber frame structure of CLT, Cross Laminated Timber, and fully isolated with a layer of rock wool insulation. In a Skilpod all techniques can be integrated that are used in a traditional house or office. Application of solar panels, heat pumps, ventilation systems, home automation systems etc. is possible, tailored to the user requirements.

STONE HOUSE BY THE SEA in Sardinia by Parisotto+Fomenton Architetti

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

Article source: Parisotto+Fomenton Architetti

The house is located on the east coast of Sardinia, facing the islands of Tavolara and Molara.

The main objective of the projects (both the renovation of the existing part and the building of the new wing of a holiday house for a family) above all was to set a dialogue with the natural context, so peculiar and to remove everything that did not belong to the place. We, as architects, wanted to take the best out of traditional materials in a very contemporary way which is our recognizable mark.
