Conceived by Italian designer Gianluca Santosuosso, the “DUNEhouse” is a creative project that combines natural with artificial to provide sustainable housing to the residents. Comprising different volumes, each representing a separate program or cluster such as kitchen, swimming pool, bedroom and bathroom, the new housing project allows an opportunity to select the accommodations according to individual needs of the residents. Made using reinforced and insulated concrete shells, the house volumes stay firm on top of small artificial dunes, which work as natural insulator to regulate the temperature within. In addition, the shells are covered with a mixture, composed by different soil bubbles, to grow green plants on the roof and walls to regulate the microclimate of the house. The windows of the structure have been made of mirrored glass, which helps regulate solar heat gain. The solar radiation is further controlled with the use of a louver system that is installed on the inner side of the glass. In short, the DUNEhouse grows an artificial organism that takes advantage of natural resources for sustainable housing.
