Joao Silva and Paola De Francesco Creates The The Breathing House Dynamic Facade of Sliding Terraces

Joao Silva and Paola De Francesco, the creative mind behind the highlighted work The Breathing House by Joao Silva and Paola De Francesco says, Imagined as a dynamic living system,the breathing house is a three storey eco-sustainable family home whose glass facade is segmented into a series of sliding terraces. The system works by means of a large metal grid that serves as an anti-sismic external skeleton for the structure (the frame allows to conduct cabling and collect rainwater). Sliding out a terrace, however, extends the internal room into a dynamic balcony. The windows are made of solar glass cells providing all the energy needs..
