NOOM is a refuge, an organic and visionary concept that aims for wellness. Creating something exceptionally radical, Sanzpont Architecture sought to evolve housing to foster a more nature-inspired way of life. A Sanctuary of conscious life.
Today’s homes are built in a way that makes us more prone to physical and emotional illness. On the contrary, Wellness Living centres design to prevent health problems and cultivate healthier lifestyles. A healthy home must be designed following several aspects grouped into 10 main concepts: Air | Water | Nourishment | Light | Movement |Thermal Comfort | Sound | Materials | Mind | Community. To achieve wellness in every aspect we designed Wellness type amenities.
We have the duty of coexisting instead of destroying the environment. That is the reason why we have decided to occupy a maximum of 30% of the land, respecting the existing trees and increasing the total green area by 130%. The project promotes, through passive and bioclimatic design, the reduction of resources use, with the aim of achieving a more sustainable housing. Other strategies used:
All interior spaces are illuminated by natural lighting
Cover with Thermal Insulation to prevent thermal transmission
The design promotes natural ventilation to renew the indoor air, ensure comfort and a healthy environment.
Water control and measurement
Selection of responsible and local materials with environmental impact
Minimize the amount of waste in construction
Preservation of existing trees
Cohabiting with fauna.
We design a flexible living, an open plan building that can be configured with multiple options according to the user’s needs. To achieve this, MEP systems run through the exterior between the outer wall and the bamboo exterior skin occluded by the vegetation layer.
