1000€ for Sqm ecological houses by Brunello Cucinella

This research project explores the design of a 100m2 home that is low cost, high quality with zero CO2 emissions and a low environmental impact. A building that brings back the pleasure of living and repays the investment cost with the energy produced. The architectural design integrates photovoltaic panels, solar capture during the winter months, circulation of air in the summer months and other passive environmental strategies that render the residence a bioclimatic machine.

The building cost is kept to a minimum by using light and flexible pre-fabricated building systems: structural elements, integrated services, and mobile elements such as sliding or removable wall panels for internal divisions in the apartments. External walls are made from modular panels. The materials change – glazed or opaque- creating an elevation that is dynamic in aspect and depth, that integrates balconies, terraces and loggias. The structural framework allows a variety of apartment sizes adapting to the different spatial needs of the occupants.

The 100K home prototype can be designed for many climatic contexts. Results for cities in the United States of America are very promising. For example in San Francisco calculations give an energy positive balance of + 20.75 kWhe/m2 year.
