THE FLOATING HOUSE, SKINS & SPACES DUBAI (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES) - PALM JUMEIRAH
The concept of building floating houses on coastal areas has been expanding widely, especially with the large urban growth, and the lack of properties to cover the increased market demands. However, the aspiration of building new floating houses that offer highly comfortable and integrity structure on water top become a reality. The innovative developed floating houses are designed and refined to reflect eco-friendly design. To improve energy consumption in such houses, integrating active systems and considering lightweight materials with proper insulation for building skins and roof insulation will help in achieving optimum energy efficiency levels. The main purpose of choosing the project in UAE generally is the hot climate, and the new trend of building houses in coastal areas. IES software will be used in the current study methodology to compare between three different building skins that will form the core of the research, with integrating three active systems to enhance energy efficiency and billing rates.
