Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
The Living Steel design competition became a great event for Piercy Conner Architects to show-off their best effort on designing a sustainable house design. Their proposed project which located in the West Bangor city of Kolkata, India earned the first place for the competition.
The Piercy Conner firm said that the idea of the contemporary housing rarely deviates from the accepted model of sealed cellular spaces, which often fails to respond to demographic and environmental conditions. In order building in the Indian environment, they put up a challenge on creating an economically viable alternative which were expressive, joyful and responsive to the environment.
SymHouse conceptualizes the symbiotic relationship of a sealed, conditioned contemporary living space enveloped by a permeable responsive outer skin. The design uses steel for cladding and shuttering as well as the internal structure. Perforated steel shades over the deep-set terraces provide a sustainable solution to air conditioning by allowing air to pass into the room and providing shade from the glaring sun thus cooling the building naturally. When needed, an inner skin can be sealed to allow air-conditioning units to be used in extremes of temperature.
The SymHomes Mk1 collaborate the sealed environments of Western style architecture sealed environments with the open and expressive of Indian architecture. The house is also designed to be an eco friendly one. SymHomes’s intelligent environmental design means power-hungry air-conditioning switches on only in extreme conditions.
