Ecological, prefab, bioclimatic and self-sufficient house, with real zero energy consumption, at a conventional price
The house is located in the southern area of Cali (Colombia). The climate of the area is very humid and warm, every day of the year. In addition, several wáter streams cross the site, increasing the humidity even more.
The attractive shapes of this special and iconic house are due to three main reasons.
On the one hand, it was desired that the house was diluted in the garden, and in turn, that the garden integrated and entered the rooms of the house.
Secondly, the curved walls protect the different windows from sun radiation, preventing the house from heating up.
Finally, the architectural structure of the house has been generated as a result of the integration of various symbolic elements related to the owners, and their way of seeing life.
The house has a sensual, organic and subtle structure, and is made up of three zones. The central area (with three height) is a covered patio, and separates the day area from the night area. This central area provides vertical communication to the house and is responsible for generating a large volume of fresh air, which continuously runs through all the rooms of the house, cooling them by its path.
One of the most impressive architectural elements of the house are the huge curved white walls, which project the structure of the house to the outside, integrating it with the environment. These walls also protect the house from direct solar radiation, generate shaded perimeter spaces and create a cool microclimate around the house.
The side areas of the house have covered ventilation patios, which on the one hand naturally illuminate all its rooms, and on the other hand they generate a fresh air stream, which will run through all the rooms of the house, cooling them by their path. In the same way, the house has a geothermal-architectural cooling system, a network of underground galleries built under the sanitary slab, which keeps the house cool while reducing its humidity.
Unique and iconic design, based on the personal and psychological characteristics of the occupants

Industrialized and 100% removable construction
The components of the house can be disassembled, repaired and reused as many times as necessary (so the house has an infinite life cycle)
Real zero energy consumption, at the lowest possible economic cost
Advanced bioclimatic design (which allows the house to cool internally without the need for air conditioning devices)
