Case: moss covered panels
Resypre is testing a bio-receptive concrete product in DreamHûs. This means giving nature the opportunity to settle on vertical surfaces, and making them green in a smart, cheap and practically maintenance-free way.
The livability and footprint of cities is forming a problem, as they mainly make use of ‘hard’ construction materials (concrete, tarmac and brickwork), leaving no space for vegetation. This results in rising temperatures in the city and heat stress, leading to more AC-usage, problems with heavy rainfall because the sewerage can’t handle it and heavy air pollution.
With this pilot on the facade of DreamHûs, Respyre is researching how the technology reacts in the ‘real world’. Specifically, they’re hoping to find answers to two questions: How do the moss covered panels affect the heat in the built environment and can they reach a significant isolation value with these moss covered panels?
