ABOUT

The house is made from fully recycled P.E.T. It is environmentally friendly, hygienic, nontoxic, uv-stable, energy-efficient, and by using different colours and opacity, surfaces are designed for varied light control and views. A lightweight prefabricated structure is filled with water, giving thermal mass, water storage and fire retardancy. The water cools in the day and returns the heat slowly during the colder nights.
