PROJECT: CASA- i by Fuster + Architects
ARQUITECT: Fuster + Architects
LOCATION: Sabana Seca
Ecológica Carmelo is honored to collaborate with the Puerto Rican firm Fuster + Architects and their sister company CASA-i on their “Ah! MINI” modules. Casa-i offers sustainable, modular, prefabricated, concrete homes and buildings. These pre-designed homes and customizable modules can then be grouped together to meet the client’s needs. Casa-i and Carmelo’s shared focus on sustainability led to a natural collaboration to bring these high-quality, resilient, and beautiful structures to life.
CASA-i incorporated Carmelo’s GCT panels into their homes because of their high R-value, resilience to high-wind and seismic events, and lightweight construction. The structural panels also provide PSM thermal insulation for the walls and the ceiling.
For this collaboration, Ecológica Carmelo supplied the following products for the construction of the homes:
