As can be seen, each colony consists of six slices that are situated around a circle. This kind of design is so flexible because it gives you a chance to decrease or increase of the circle size due to provide more spaces as a central yard. In addition, it is possible to change the size of each slice according to the number of people In general, each single slice includes three sections (living area, kitchen and dining area, bedrooms with bath and toilet) which can increase the size of bedroom area based on the resident number).Moreover, it is possible to add or subdivide the number of slice in each colony. The other important thing is related to the orientation of colony. In particular, the position of a colony can be changed due to absorb more solar energy as well as each slice. In other word, three slices of each colony that is located in opposite side can go up vertically for absorbing more solar energy or the whole colony can rotate around a circle during the day for providing the appropriate sun-rays for each slice. The first solution (three slices go up vertically) is possible for just single story and the second one (colony’s rotation) is suitable for two colonies in two levels.
The materials of this concept are transparent wood, glass and timber but transparent wood is the main material that covers the whole walls of the slice. In my opinion, living in transparent wooden slice with possibility of visiting bushes, flowers and the surrounding environment as well as utilizing proper natural light would be enjoyable.
There is a rainwater harvesting system in central yard that is located under the small pond due to provide efficient water for irrigation and indoor water demand which leads to preserve water. In addition, each slice has a sewage treatment plant for reusing the water. Between each slice there is a green space for vertical farming, flowers and trees which lead to provide the nice scenery particularly via transparent walls. That is so exciting. The roof of slice is also covered with green area or green roof. Each green roof is combined with solar energy system through significant synergy effects. Actually corporation of them leads to generate the sufficient energy demand of the unit, decrease energy costs and improve air quality. Aesthetic aspect of green roof utilization is so obvious.
