CASA 1.0 concept

Comfortable

Designing homes with comfort and health in mind that people want to live in them. In addition, homes should provide a healthy indoor climate and promote a healthy lifestyle

Affordable

More often than not, what limits the availability of technology is its cost. By improving efficiency in materials, time and energy, these new homes should be no more expensive than an average home

Sustainable

Currently, we need more than three times in the country to sustain our society. Homes should be designed so that the ecological footprint of its residents is neutral or even better.

Alternative

While policymakers make promises about reducing emissions and stopping climate change, the construction market is slow to adapt. Housing alternatives must be fast if society is to stop climate change in this generation.

Mission

Our mission is to accelerate the transition from the world of integration and innovation in the construction environment. We will set a new, higher standard for all homes regarding sustainability, health and costs that can be achieved today.

Our goals

Build homes to demonstrate the feasibility of integrating:

  • A sustainable building process

• Slim Bouwen® – waste, CO2 emissions, weight, volume & building time reduction
• Demountable – materials are separately recyclable with minimal downcycling
• Prefabrication – to reduce costs and increase efficiency

  • PRODUCTION AND STORAGE OF ENERGY DURING EXPLOITATION

• Integrated thermal and electrical energy production
• Seasonal Thermal Energy Storage
• Local DC grid with electric energy storage ± 10kWh

  • A USER-CENTERED LIVING EXPERIENCE

• Intelligent, autonomous control system
• Simple UI for climate control, energy monitoring, lighting, safety and security
• Open software platform for implementation of specific domotics & home automation

  • THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY

• Connecting Smart Grids & Mobility: electricity load balancing, sustainable transport
• Smart Common areas: users co-create and co-manage the collective domain
• Research opportunities for the TU / e in optimizing hardware and software
