One of the project's innovations is the use of a well-known material but whose properties are constantly being improved. Ultra-high performance fiber concrete is, as its name suggests, an innovative concrete with better eciency than conventional concrete. Despite a lower thickness, its properties are multiplied, which allows an infinite aesthetic creativity. The peculiarity of these facades is the ease and speed of implementation, they are exclusively composed of 3 plates of different dimensions, alternated by strips of photovoltaic panels, it's possible to repeat and assemble very quickly. The design of this external coating is entirely defined by decathletes.
MULTI LAYERED WALL
The middle east is known by its subtropical desert climate, with very pleasant warm winters, and very hot summers, in which the combination of temperature and variable humidity makes the heat really oppressive. Because of this climate, we thought about a composite wall made up of several layers. This composition allows a good insulation for the house’s interior and a good comfort temperature.
The main focus while choosing theses materials for our project was the thermal aspect of the materials, in order to provide the inhabitants with the best comfort. The thermal eciency of the house also reduces its energy consumption, making it eco-friendly energywise.
