Sustainable Home Design Competition
In this competition aimed at re-structuring in a region located in old urban structure of Geneva an energy efficient and sustainable dwelling campus was studied. In the design which is based on modular dwelling units, user-friendly physical spaces were created while necessary solutions were generated for effective use of resources, high energy efficiency and high environmental indoor space quality. Thus, the minimum energy consumption value which was the most important objective of the competition was achieved.
The design submitted for the competition held for development of environmentally-friendly working and production areas provides a relationship between the project and its surrounding through reduction of footprint of the building, enhancement of outdoor space use and circulation organization which facilitates pedestrian circulation.
Basic design objectives are to provide a sustainable cooperation, research and working environment, to raise awareness on clean production processes and sustainability of buildings, to be a pioneer in terms of contemporary aggregation, working and cooperation methods, to enhance competitiveness at international level and to develop a model OIZ at international level.
