MEN – Ministerul Educatiei Nationale, Academia Romana, INSB- Institutul National de Cercetare-Dezvoltare pentru Stiinte Biologice, GeoEcoMar – Institutul National de Cercetare-
Proiectul prezentat este un MANIFEST PENTRU DURABILITATE, SUSTENABILITATE, reinterpretand valorile traditionale ale arhitecturii romanesti.
Casa Mecanica, spune povestea unei arhitecturi participative, care implementeaza energii alternative.
Credem ca si Romania poate sa aiba un Viitor Verde.
Alaturi de noi au fost si cei de la SOLAR DECATHLON – EFdeN – pe care ii felicitam pentru viziune, efortul de a sustine prin proiectare o casa verde, perseverenta si mobilizare.
Project Description – abstract:
Project objective: The National Institute for Research and Development in Biological Sciences, Bucharest, by means supported by the Ministry of National Education from the State Budget, has started, since 2012, the Research Center project, located in the Murighiol commune, in Tulcea County, on the lot T51, P369, with a total footprint of approx. 100.000 sq. m, owned by the Institute. In the first phase, it was completed the project for PILLAR 1, a small investment, constituting the starting point and the local component for the envisioned action on international level (PILLAR 2), The International Research Center Danube – The Black See, within the following 10 years. The project started in 2012 will be completed in 2014.
Architectural proposal: The building will be located in the North-West extremity of the site, aiming, by virtue of geometrical disposal, to secure the conditions and requirements that will afford the future development of the Research Center on the unbuilt plot. It will facilitate the exploitation of the plot for the PILLAR 2, without restricting future intervention possibilities. The most important area was considered to be the lake-shore, an extremely valuable ecosystem, which will be the foundation for forthcoming researches. It was determined that the optimal solution will be a linear construction, perpendicularly developed on the long line of the site and of the lake-shore, thus favoring the access to the water.
CCM – The Murighiol Research Laboratories (pillar 1) is configured as a small scale research base, with a single building comprising an underground floor and a first floor, with a foot print of 647, 85 sqm.
The total built area is 913, 95 sqm.
The construction integrates three distinct areas that can function individually in relation to the needs of the Center: the lab area, the conference area and an accommodation area for the researchers.
The construction aims at becoming a manifest for the reinterpretation of the local traditional architectural values, emphasizing on the minimal insertion in the site, resting on a lake-oriented linear development and, simultaneously, on the eloquence of the local construction materials. Considering the location of the building, in the area of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reservation, The Danube Delta biosphere reservation Regulations and The Danube Delta biosphere reservation urbanism framework Regulations were prioritized, thus amplifying the ecological component.
Consequently, the building counts on using alternative energy resources usage: solar energy and geothermal energy. The research component was expanded to the construction itself (assimilated to an experimental mechanism), an experiment in terms of employing the usage of photovoltaic panels and of the geoexchange system via the heating pumps, therefore aiming at the energetic self-sufficiency of the building.
Volumetrically, the projected building brings up-to-date a typical model of the area. The proposed volume aims at reinterpreting in a contemporary manner the locally specific traditional elements, not only in terms of the geometrical conformity of the construction, but also with respect to the specific construction materials that will be used.
The ecological component of the project is a resultant of employing the usage of local construction materials, of finishes with a high biodegradable coefficient (in terms of decomposition into the environment), on the one hand, and of reducing/limiting the transportation flow required by the building process, on the other hand.
The proposed construction will make use of two distinct sources of alternative energy. The first of them, the telluric one, will use the heating pumps geothermal system to regulate the air-conditioning (the cooling and the heating) of the interiors. Consecutively, the solar energy captation system, comprising photovoltaic cell panels, was placed on the South-East frontage (local South-West), to ensure an optimal energetic performance. The system was integrated within the general volumetric model as a portico, thus reinterpreting the ancient Danubian, naturally ventilated, front-porches (stoops). The photovoltaic system was designed as a ventilation system with on grid functioning, integrating semi-transparent (poly)crystalline cells panels into external the South side of the portico. In addition, the integrated photovoltaic system will regulate the heating input and will secure the solar radiation protection for the entire building.
