The ReYard House, Ben Guerir

The design of the ReYard House is inspired by both traditional Turkish and Moroccan architectural styles. For both cultures privacy has an utmost importance which shaped the architecture of the houses. Families generally spend their time in the yards. Therefore, comfort conditions of the yard are important. ReYard courtyard is designed to be a comfortable space for the hot and dry desert climate. The separator walls are designed to allow the wind through the yard to cool down the temperature while limiting the visual contact from outside.
Solar panels of ReYard are placed on top of the wooden canopy. This canopy protects the yard from the sun and ensures climate comfort. It also captures and redirects wind into the yard where the evaporation from the algae pond helps to cool down the courtyard. The rammed earth based and wooden framed panels are the fundamental building elements of the ReYard. Bamboo sticks are used as insulating material. The house is designed as a modular system. What is also aimed in ReYard was mainly to reduce water and carbon footprints of the project by using a microalgae-based advanced waste water treatment system. This method provides an advanced treated reusable water for secondary purposes.
