During the awareness of the impact of fossil fuels an environmentally
friendly building investment is becoming a spontaneous reaction.
With MARLES MOBILE HOME, sustainable dealing with construction
and energy sources is already enbedded in the concept. The
materials used are renewable, locally available, with minimum
energy input for effect. The composition follows the thoughts
that building "lives alone". Ideally, it would even be without
municipal connections - a technology already achievable now
and in surely a reality the next generation. With the production
process and its own locally-shelf resource, the system MARLES
MOBILE HOME s provides excellent ratio between value and function
of the building - which is - toether with ensuring virtually
zero power consumption and compliance with high quality natural
resources - always the best indicator of environmental sustainability
of a project. The attractive price is also linked with high
environmental sustainability - today perhaps a rare combination,
but the only successful one in the long run.
MOBILE HOME MARLES ADDRESS
The system MARLES MOBILE HOME is a full fledged answer to
the existential challenges of the present. The construction
takes into account all the principles that Marles installes
into their single-family buildings. Special attention to functional
composition has led to two accommodation units, which are
able to address a wide range of users. Because of the way
the system works, MARLES MOBILE HOME can be used useful to
achieve high living quality both individually as well as in
the formation of larger urban or. rural agglomerations. By
stacking four duplex units a building dimensions 25.0 / 8.8
m and a height of about 6 meters is obtained, which represents
a volume comparable to that of existing multi apartmetns urban
aglomerations and can be applied to the creation of quality
urban neighborhoods. Thus, living areas for the target population
can be created - young families, elderly people... today there
are many experiments of intergenerational living (which give
a surprisingly positive results). Individual smaller and larger
modules are suitable for installation into natural environment,
where their reticence sponatneously blends them into nature.
Given the tendencies of tourism development both modules are
suitable for placement in the upper level in camps where the
"CASA MOBILE" offer has already had a good reception.
The system presents two elements. MOBILE HOME 50 is a ground
floor unit with slightly less than 50 m2 netto useful area.
It comprises a living area, two bedrooms and a bathroom. MOBILE
HOME 2 x 40 is a unit with two floors with internal stairs.
Ground floor comprises entrance and living areas, upper floor
two bedrooms with a bathroom. Children's bedroom is large
enough to split into separate rooms.
MOBILE HOME 50 is primarily intended for individual installation.
With a small adaptation of window openings can four units
can be combined, forming a buidling of 29,0m by 8,8m. MOBILE
HOME 2 X 40 can be placed individually, two lengthwise, two
across, or four units toether. The biggest building thus obtained
is sized 25.0 by 8.8 m with height of about 6 meters. In case
of large-scale urban developments, individual modules can
be used for bicycle sheds, children's playrooms, etc. ...
STRUCTURAL DESIGN Unit has a massive wooden structure filled
with thermal insulation. Entire module is a self-supporting
structure, which is independent and is transported and placced
on site in a single piece. On location, it requires individual
foundations and a connection point for utility installations
Exteriors are finished in ventilated façade systems - lateral
and back facades are of fiber-cement boards, front façade
of even stronger laminate panels. Laminate has horizontal
slits height of approximately 1.5 cm and a length of approximately
6 cm. Interior trims follow the thought of presence of wood
as a pleasant natural material. Floor and ceiling are made
of exposed wood panels, walls are painted white, which allows
appropriate maintenance and refreshment. Because the production
process is carried out in a controlled manufacturing environment,
the quality level of final assembly processes can be higher
than that attained at construction sites. Continuous control
of product design provides stability and longer service life
The unit consists of materials and assemblies that enables
full recycling of all items. The system of construction is
modularly optimized and generates almost no construction waste.
After the first assembly, the unit can be moved to a new location
without any problems. Following the decision to dismantle
it, all the components are recycled.
Electricity is selected as the medium that drives all the
energy systems. Electricity is the most ubiquitous, its energy
systems are developed to a high degree of efficiency, this
system also allows the development towards the autonomy of
the buildings. Electricity drives the multifunction heat pump
(air - water system), which prepares the heating and hot water,
and also allows the preparation of the cooling medium. The
building is heated by underfloor heating, which is of even
greater importance in a house with optimized dimensions. The
system of power supply is also preprared for installation
of photovoltaic panels on the roof, which easily provides
a uniform balance of annual production and consumption of
electricity. Besides zero energy consumption, emissions of
pollutants or energy are also zero. MARLES MOBILE HOME units
are so stable in regard to construction physics that they
allow and even encourage a relaxed combination of outdoor
and indoor living. Living with nature and its cycles is a
wealth that makes every immune system happy.
