In a small plot of 9 by 27 meters on the beach in Venice Beach California David Hertz has created an interesting house prefabricated weekend David Hertz used a transparent system of structural steel columns and beams, diagonal trusses and concrete planks to eliminate the need for bearing walls inside. Thanks to this, taking advantage of prevailing winds that travel unimpeded three floors of the house.
Another feature that helps to regulate ventilation and temperature inside the glass is located on the west side, mounted on a transmission system by a worm. The house is built with aluminum panels, similar to those used for cooling towers. In this case it uses panels with a thickness of only 15 inches but that isolate the interior of the warm summer temperatures very effectively. Each panel weighs only 45 kilograms and cost savings in both construction and heating and cooling is an advantage that should not be overlooked. These prefabricated aluminum walls offer an insulation level four times higher than conventional wall.
The house also includes a cooling system with internal and external sensors and various solar photovoltaic panels in the ceiling to help reduce the energy footprint of the building. Unable to install a pool in the sun because of its small size the architect has chosen to integrate it into the roof.
