If you stop by our blog once in a while you will see that we are great fans of green living when its combined with any sort of smart building methods such as prefabricated buildings. We have just happened on this article on a green living blog about a modular building system that can be changed to suite a family or organisations changing need now we love this sort of stuff so please read on.
Designed by Michael Jantzen, the Home-Scape is a design study for a prefabricated, modular, building system, which can be increased or decreased in size, and the shape can be changed to accommodate changing needs. The material of choice for its construction is a lightweight pre-insulated concrete composite panel. The shapes of the structures are intended to create an organic landscape of buildings when they are clustered together. A few basic components can be joined together in many different ways to sculpt a great variety of forms.
Various alternative energy gathering and storage systems, such as solar and wind, can easily be integrated into the architecture. An emphasis is placed on passive heating and cooling, along with natural ventilation and lighting. In addition, the Home-Scape Building System attached greenhouses for growing food.
We are loving the fact that this building system is more organic and free flowing with its use of curves.
