The research project and technological development Cool Haven emerged with the goal of developing a constructive solution that took into account the future sustainability requirements.

Thus, the new housing concept presents a modular structure, perfectly flexible and resilient, able to meet the needs of mobility and the natural necessity for adaptation when families face an increase or decrease of their household.

Simultaneously, and as mentioned above, the sustainability of construction was instrumental for the development of the new concept. Thus, this type of housing takes advantage of local renewable energy (solar energy and thermal inertia of the soil), natural ventilation, treatment of waste water and the use of rainwater.
