Indeed, in terms of sustainability, by being founded on stilts, the houses have minimal impact on the land. On the other hand, they allow families to use the land for cultivation or as a green leisure area. At the same time, the roofs and wide overhang can integrate solar panels, as well as serving as rainwater harvesting surfaces for later reuse. In addition to all this, natural ventilation is facilitated by the elevation above the ground, as well as by the large windows and large doors.
The project also assumes the need to keep costs low, a circumstance to which its conception as prefabricated modular buildings contributes. Built on steel piles, their modularity allows for various configurations, with one or two storeys, according to the needs and possibilities of each family. It also facilitates iteration for use in the tourist-apartment rental industry, or for the development of temporary resorts with a minimal carbon footprint. They can also be built in difficult terrain and remote areas, without the need for large resources, significant earthworks or great amounts of energy, thus becoming factors of sustainable development and revitalisation for the local economy.
