H2ouses can be transformed by their inhabitants to provide
H2ouse has a water defence system. In case of huge flooding threat it can move away to a safer place. It is an answer to the question: How to live with rising water levels and the ever-present thread of flood?
H2OUSES COMPACT POSITION
In case of flooding, water level changing.Special construction protects house
SPREAD OUT POSITION #1-3.
More light to the apartments and more space to the inner yard.
SPREAD OUT APARTMENT BLOCKS.
No emergency. Most comfortable position
Each house (#1-5) has a different public space, which helps to ventilate a
whole building in a compact position.
ENERGY SOURCES and MATERIALS:
1).Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines(generally begin rotating at lower speeds and are more quiet ), made from recycled plastic and underwater free flow turbines provide electric power.
2). Sphelar solar panels (on the windows) provide electric power. Unlike conventional flat solar cells,Sphelar takes on a spherical shape,which makes it capable of power generation with greater efficiency and flexible applications.
3).Sphelar solar panels on the roof of greenhouses are used for turning salt water into fresh water for inhabitants.
4).Reduce potable water consumption by using collected rain water for irrigation. Using an advanced irrigation system for all landscaped areas. System consists of subsurface precision irrigation and soil moisture sensors.
5).Mini Hydro Turbines capture the “free” energy of a tap to spin a miniature generator that could provide power to charge an electric toothbrush or laptop.
6).Building is designed with natural ventilation system for cooling to reduce energy consumption
7).Recycled alumni cans and recycled timber panels are used for facades
