SOLARKIT. SOLAR DECATHLON 2010
Solarkit was the sustainable project presented by University of Seville for the competition Solar Decathlon Europe 2010, first time in Madrid (Spain).
Solarkit is a demountable, self-sufficient, low-cost house. Its innovative architecture provides all the amenities of a permanent house, while featuring a removable system whose modular, lightweight components are both functional and flexible.
Solarkit is a self-sufficient house system (it produces three times the energy it consumes) which adapts to urban as well as rural locations. It can be implanted as a new construction, or as an extension of pre-existing structures in all sorts of territorial contexts.
