Team Atlantic Challenge has chosen to take up the challenge of rehabilitating Cap 44, an industrial edifice built in 1895 by the famous reinforced concrete builder François Hennebique. The building was successively converted into an agricultural cooperative and an office building, but is derelict today.
The Philéas project embodies thinking on urban, plant development, energy and social needs, giving birth to the “fertile city” concept, with the aims of converting the edifice into a centre for urban market gardening.
Live from Solar Decathlon:
The purpose of Philéas is to create housing units, offices and a restaurant, which will serve vegetables grown on the roof of the building. A double pitched glass roof incorporating dual lens monocrystalline photovoltaic modules will be installed above the building.
The prototype module exhibited at Solar Decathlon 2014 represents a smaller version of this glass roof, which allows a maximum amount of natural light to be supplied to the building’s central atrium and to the crops on the roof.
Serge Ferrari outdoor solar protection
Three motorised blinds covered with Soltis 86 composite screen ensure a pleasant natural light contribution and total outward visibility.
The Soltis 86 screen ensures the perfect compromise between efficient solar protection and building thermal control: it eliminates up to 88% of solar radiation.
Soltis 86 Screen is lightweight, durable and 100% recyclable through Serge Ferrari’s Texyloop® operational recycling network.
Energy Efficiency Award : Phileas by Team Atlantic Challenge won the 1st prize !
