House with a Skin
The Pret-a-Loger team consists of Students from TU Delft who are looking to renew the world. Their project ‘House with a Skin’ will compete in the Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 competition in Versailles and aims to solve the problems relating to the current building stock by laying a new skin over existing houses. In this way, the homes of the inhabitants can be preserved while new spaces are created to the front and rear of the house. The insulated skin will provide a climatic buffer zone to the outside, generate its own power and reclaim the somewhat lost relationship to the public street thus tackling issues regarding ecological and in particular social sustainability.
