Habitable Wind Farms on the Coast of Holland

Design: Murtada Alkaabi – designer at To Create

Over the years, we see that there is increasing interest in wind energy. However, governments concentrate only on the functionality of wind power systems. Therefore, these systems became bigger in size and more expensive. At the same time citizens show little interest in wind energy because of the remote localisation of wind farms and the reputation to be unsuitable for habitation and recreation. In recent years little progress is made to address this issue in order to create cheaper, eye catching and more efficient wind energy systems.

Habitable Wind Farms

The philosophy behind this project is that architecture should not only focus on designing buildings, but also focus on combining sustainable energy and habitability, to create a sustainable way of living in the future. This is excatly what this project aims to achieve: to let people experience the benefits of the wind energy in a sustainable living environment by combining habitability (architecture) and a new wind energy system (technology).

Habitable Wind Farms

All generated wind energy will go through a connector between the inverter and the mains to the power grid. The power that you do not consume, is returned to the power grid. This creates a sustainble loop between the User en the suplayer. In this way the generated wind energy is never lost, you can save money on your electricity bills with the wind panels and you do not have to be pinched when it’s not windy.

Habitable Wind Farms

The design incorporates also other multipel sustainable features, like green roof which functions as a natural insulation and reuse of rain water. Secondly the facade panels are demontable, making the building flexibel in terms of use and appearance. At the same time these panels are made from sustainable/recyclable materials. Another benefit of this adaptable and generic structure is the fact that de design maintaince the indivudiual indentity and character of the the different users through these panels.

Habitable Wind Farms

The new wind energy concept as described differentiates itself in many elements from current concepts, having the potential to become a touristic attraction and a landmark among other architectural landmarks of the world.
