PVCConstruct is a cultural project without any commercial interest. It was born to illustrate the many ways in which Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) can enhance our daily lives.
This house for an artist, designed by Belgian Samyn and Partners.
The architects had to design the structure, the insulation, and the water-tightness of the envelope and resolve the building physics issues in order to receive the necessary support, irrigation and fertilisation systems for the plants that are set into a felt support stapled to rigid PVC panels.
Immense trans-lucid white polyester curtains in widths of 1.6 m suspended from the top of the structure to the ground floor are planned to run along this great “window” to ensure shade in the summer months.
