BRISA.NET ECO-HOUSING COMPLEX

Luis De Garrido Architects as Architects

The proposed design contest a particular site, and a longitudinal block type to fit 54 homes.


The proposed solution consists of a block length divided by a central courtyard, which are vertical communication cores, social spaces, and thermal solar collectors.


The houses are of several different types are arranged along the north gallery.


The types are flexible, and the user can transform at will, depending on their specific needs. The freedom that gives users even extends to the front, so the facade becomes an organic entity in constant transformation.


To control the visual perception of a constantly changing façade, it has been covered by a set of colored metal mesh. Regardless of the variations that cut back, the screen provides visual stability to the whole. These screens also allow an economical and effective control of solar radiation.


When solar radiation is tangential to the mesh, it is shown dense and can not aravesar, so that cast a shadow behind it (summer). Conversely, when solar radiation passes in an orthogonal to the mesh, the crosses with ease, reaching the windows of the facade (winter).
