Realizing a Comfortable, Affordable and Sustainable Alternative for housing in the Netherlands.

Comfortable: Designing homes with comfort and health in mind ensures that people want to live in them. In addition, homes should provide a healthy indoor climate and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Affordable: More often than not, what limits the availability of a technology to the general market is its cost. By improving efficiencies in materials, time and energy, these new homes should be no more expensive than an average home.

Sustainable: Currently, we need more than three times the land area available on earth to sustain our society. Homes should be designed so that the ecological footprint of its residents is neutral or even better.

Alternative: While policymakers make promises about reducing emissions and stopping climate change, the construction market is slow to adapt. Housing alternatives must come fast if society is to stop climate change in this generation.

De letterlijke kern van de woning is een dragende kolom die dienst doet als service-core. Deze loopt van vloerniveau tot het Energiedak-Plus. Aan deze stabiele kern worden alle binnen- en buitenwanden "gehangen". Onder de woning komt een forse waterbuffer waarmee de CASA het jaar rond van energie wordt voorzien (tapwater, koeling, verwarming). Deze buffer wordt vanaf het dak gevoed met thermische energie.
