WOULD THIS BE AN EXAMPLE FOR FIRE PROOF HOUSE DESIGN?
We would like to share our partner’s work how they visualize the fire-proof house in California. Please be the subscriber of the channel for their design update. Here their simple description:
California’s dry-weather causes wildfires and spreads to homes quite often. U.S. houses are very vulnerable to fire because they use wood materials mainly, which can cause even more damage. Nevertheless, concrete construction is expensive and difficult to use. The U.S. is large country. Mostly the distance from where concrete is produced is too far and it makes hard to transport on time and also it is quite expensive. Thus, the lack of specialized labor makes construction cost even higher than conventional development. Hence, it would be great when you can build an exterior main structure of a house that’s as economical as a wooden structure and doesn’t burn.
In that simple thought, we searched possible solution and found a product that came out to secure the need. It’s called RSG-3D. (only for the purpose of the concept design) The panel is said to be 100 percent fireproof, so the effect is like concrete based on CEO of the manufacturer. If these new materials could replace the use of concrete, we thought we could build a fire-proof house without adding too much extra cost compared to the conventional house development. Hence we made one as an sample.
The house is a duplex and the total floor area is 1,870 sf (174sm). 1st floor is 1120sf (104sm) and 2nd floor is 753sf (70sm).
1st floor includes living room, kitchen, dining, 1 reading room, master bedroom, 1 Ensuite with walk-in-closet and 2nd floor includes 1 living room, 1 bathroom, 2bedrooms with 1 walk-in-closet.
