NOEM’s Fantastic Ecological Home 3.0
We are constantly looking for new tiny residences for you. Today, we’ll introduce you to the ‘Fantastic Ecological Home 3.0 by Noem,’ which is ideal for living the minimalist lifestyle of your dreams.
Noem created this modular house as a prefab house. The 67.5 square meter home is in Spain. The home is controlled by a smartphone and is technologically engineered to maximize energy efficiency.
This home is made up of two parts. The big module is 9 x 4.5 m in size, while the tiny module is 9 × 3 m in size.
The architects produced the text description. A bioclimatic and technology house constructed in record time using a completely computerized technique. A contemporary and pleasant design, with 3.00 technology to operate the house from a smartphone and maximize energy efficiency. What more could you want? The proprietors of this one-of-a-kind structure desired a digital home that was sensitive of the Serra environment, which they adore. NOEM designed and built this modern passive house for them, completing the project in 10 weeks.
This sustainable timber home 3.00 is completely computerized in both its design and production processes, as well as its use control. Because of digitalization, we can now build an efficient and intelligent bio-climatic house and transmit it immediately to digital cutting equipment. As a consequence, the home is efficient and sustainable in every way: economic sustainability via time and error savings and process optimization; environmental sustainability through the extensive use of locally available materials and a passive wooden house that is extremely energy efficient.
All the equipment is interconnected via internet … even the light switches. Home automation allows not only to execute orders to increase comfort but can also act autonomously to achieve greater energy efficiency. The HVAC system adapts to the weather forecast, the irrigation system operates according to soil moisture and rain forecast, and mechanical ventilation activates when the concentration of C02 is high. The lights can be synchronized with the schedule on a smartphone or programmed to wake us up or greet us when we get home via GPS or detectors. The switches are autonomous, without wiring, and function via radio, we can move them around and program them as we like: no electricians or cables required.
“The refugi” consists of two wood modules prefabricated in a wood shop and assembled on site, which together have a floor area of 96m2. A broad and generous porch with a large automated awning, facing south and overlooking the Serra welcomes us.
The larger module is 9×4.5 m and contains a luminous living room-dining-kitchen that connects to the porch through a large retractable window 3 meters wide, which transforms the two spaces into one. A second 9×3 m module contains a double bedroom, a bathroom and a flexible study that can turn into a double bedroom.
The modules are built with solid structural panels of laminated wood 81 mm thick. Wood fiber panels 16,00 cm thick thermally insulate the entire envelope. The facades are covered with larch wood mounted on a ventilated chamber. The glass is high performance. And inside wooden beams, parquet floors and white walls are combined.
