Optimising living areas… this is the aim of the “Your+” prototype imagined by the Swiss team based on the inhabitant cooperative model.
The concept involves reducing the living area from the existing 50 m² to the future 35 m² per person.
Live from Solar Decathlon:
The Your+ project aspires to build a collective housing unit unlike any other! The inside is arranged around three independent areas:
• “My room” areas providing intimacy: bedrooms and bathroom
• “Our room” semi-communal areas including the kitchen and dining room for two to five people
• “Your room” areas open to the community and intended for multiple uses.
All these areas are interconnected by circulation areas called “space +”, encouraging conversation. The latter transition corridors are also used to control temperatures and light, while encouraging dialogue and social relations.
The prototype presented at Solar Decathlon exhibits the three rooms designed as distinct parallelepipeds interconnected by “space+” area.
Outdoor solar protection: Soltis 86
The Soltis 86 composite screen is installed on the large glazed areas, ensuring each room’s comfort and thermal control: it eliminates up to 88% of solar radiation.
Furthermore, it contributes to the visual comfort of occupants, while conserving the natural light contribution and offering total outward visibility through its openings: visual contact with the environment is thereby maintained.
Soltis 86 Screen is lightweight, durable and 100% recyclable through Serge Ferrari’s Texyloop® operational recycling network.
