Published on

Created in 1999, Solar Trap - architecture is an office pioneer in the intersection between architecture / energy / ecology. Our pursuit of eco-sustainability at various scales of architecture is based on an holistic and systemic approach to the creation of human ecosystems. From urban spaces, new buildings, or refurbishing, passing through the search of more adjusted construction solutions, we always seek the highest levels of performance, quality of life and cost efficiency for the minimum environmental impacts throughout the life cycle of the built environments we create

  2. 2. Our missionCreated in 1999, Solar Trap - architecture isan office pioneer in the intersection betweenarchitecture / energy / ecology.Our pursuit of eco-sustainability at variousscales of architecture is based on an holisticand systemic approach to the creation ofhuman ecosystems. From urban spaces, newbuildings, or refurbishing, passing through thesearch of more adjusted constructionsolutions, we always seek the highest levelsof performance, quality of life and costefficiency for the minimum environmentalimpacts throughout the life cycle of the builtenvironments we create.Vision, Innovation and creativity is our core.If doesnt exist we design and invent it, joiningcompanies and promoters with the best R&Dcentres, making projects in partnership tolaunch new products in the market, takingadvantage of our awarded knowledge andexperience.Our servicesOnce we are pioneers and in control of theknowledge and know-how, Solar Trap activityis spread to a wide range of challenges. Fromarchitecture and design, to consultancy, vision& strategy, green building, ecological thinking,sustainability certification,energyperformance in buildings, we´ve alreadyplanned, alone or in partnership: urbandevelopments, hotels and rural tourism, multiand uni familiar buildings, modular houses,new technologies and products.Among others, we´ve won the NationalInnovation Prize - BES with Jee – EcoEfficient Window. Jee is a patented buildingfaçades technology that functions to increasethe heat exchange and air fluxes takingadvantage from passive solar radiation toreduce in 30% the energy costs in servicebuildings or dwellings.solar trap - architecturearmadilha solar - arquitectura
  3. 3. Our processWe dream with reality.Our human character is modern, informed,inventive and concerned with anenvironmental heritage. Our time span iscircular to built environments serving not onlyas an artificial circumstance, but also as anaugmented ecosystem, flexible andregenerable, low impact, extending nature´sfunctioning to inside spaces.For us architecture will always be an humancreation projecting his performance and rulemodels with an ever changing idea of nature,shaping spaces to an optimized functioning,improving energy efficiency, thermal comfortand behaviour, natural light and air quality,but also giving users the chance to discoverand question, without loosing their references.Every project is therefore a stimulus to aninteraction with the promoters understanding,aspirations, the program, the site, thegreen/blue/grey networks functioning, legalframes, business model and financial project.With a world wide network of contacts, welook for the best partnerships to meet thechallenges posed to us, increasing the scaleof the team or empowering technical skills inareas like engineering, science andtechnology or nature functioning.solar trap - architecturearmadilha solar - arquitectura

Urban PlanningEco-Efficient Housing DevelopmentCondomínio Eco-EficienteSite - Bougado - TrofaCliente / Client : Dr. Eduardo Campos CarlosÁrea / Area : 15.730m2 habitações / 18 dweillings (stage1)Custo / Cost : € 5.350.000,00 (aprox.)Conclusão / Conclusion : projectAutoria / Authors : Miguel VeríssimoThis project reflects our methodological and creative approach to a medium/large urban eco-efficient system. We have projected a 5 steps life cycle approach (project-construction-operation-maintenance-deconstruction). Already licensed, this condominium to be sited atTrofa (Portugal) meets state-of-the-art levels on crossing architecture/energy/ecology. Theimplantation uses a concrete hardcore structure (access ramps and infrastructural features)assuring not only the necessary the necessary structural stability but also the most correctthermal functioning inside the house. The side-by-side concrete structures also organizesthe urban disposition, the infrastructural efficiency and a continuous green coverer. Theother building systems to create the dwelling spaces are light steel, aluminum and wood.
  8. 8. Eco-Efficient Housing DevelopmentCondomínio Eco-EficienteSite - Bougado - TrofaThe exterior spaces are open and exclusively for the trees, playing and leisure. The construction environmental impact, once the concretestructures put the house flying over the soil, its only 10%. The dwelling program is flexible and grows over time with the family spaceneeds. The 3R´s approach and eco-efficiency is almost perfect. The energy efficiency achieves the highest level possible Net ZeroEnergy Building. With few more active and “smart strategies” (domotics+PV+E_Mob) this urban system can accomplish E+ levels (creatingenergy instead of spending it).

They tread lightly on our planet, and utilizenatural resources effectively. Outdoor Environs combine theflexibility you desire to extend your life beyond the boundaries ofyour home, and a construction philosophy of eco-friendlyprinciples designed not to break the bank. Each OE unit is a 251sq. ft. combination of aesthetic, quality, flexibility, and value.Industrial modeloptimization - 12 pieces

  19. 19. Jee - EcoEfficient Window is a patented and awarded eco-efficient façade system to be applied both in refurbishingor in new buildings. JEE´s design uses simple thermodynamics phenomenon to take advantage from sun and heatexchange at façade level in order to improve the building thermal, daylight and ventilation performances. Prototypedand tested during an annual climate cycle, the lab tests proved that JEE increases energy efficiency and reducesCO2 emissions more than 30% of dwellings or service buildings life cycles. JEE´s playback time for an average2012 energy costs, was valued in 7 to 9 years. JEE is ready to be produced and commercialised.winter/mid season – green house effect during the dayheat radiation and thermal convection during the nightNational Innovation Award - BES 2007

  21. 21. MUSCLE is an integrated system for urban regeneration. The basic concept is to create a methodological approach capable tofulfil different scale requirements – from urban scale passing by dwellings to rooms. The basic idea is to maximize Green,&Blueinfrastructures to reduce soil artificialization to minimum. So, ecological footprint and biocapacity are important indicators to befound. Next, a five steps strategy takesplace:1 – Increasing biocapacity, boosting green&blue infrastructures to reduce soilartificialization 2 – Existing façades and interior walls demolition (if needed) 3 – (Re)structure adding strength, newinfrastructures, roof spaces 4 – Room capsules hang-up. More area, green energies 5 – Parking, street cycle lane, up pathways1 2 3 4 5
