I-yard 2.0


It has a series of basics design parameter on daylight, thermal comfort and ventilation. The indoor daylighting regulation system mainly uses the dual-channel control method to reach the control of wireless physical switch and intelligent app through a variety of wireless connection devices. It adjusts the lighting brightness, light color temperature, one-button control mode and wake up stress lamp at night to meet the lighting needs of the elderly under different use environments. In terms of active design, the floor heating system of the building uses the radiant film technology of electric heating and the stone floor of tourmaline + calcite which can improve the heat transfer efficiency and absorb indoor particles to improve indoor air quality. The air conditioning system uses the efficient and energy-saving photovoltaic direct-drive VRF air conditioning system. It centrally arranges the air inlet and outlet pipes according to the shortest path to reach the rapid indoor cooling in summer. Meanwhile, the upper and lower air inlet and outlet mode is used to avoid the adverse impact of cold air on the elderly directly. The fresh air system uses the system of heat exchange of waste heat to control and regulate indoor humidity, carbon dioxide concentration and PM2.5 concentration to reduce energy consumption. In terms of passive design, the air wall system with efficient heat absorption blue membrane technology is used on the second floor to achieve all-round heating of the building in winter. The core of the building uses a variable atrium. On the one hand, the platform is made of aerogel glass which has a good heat preservation and insulation effect; on the other hand, the rise and fall of the atrium platform can achieve a good ventilation adjustment and temperature adjustment by changing the upper and lower positions


The exterior wall of the building uses self-designed light-weight steel composite wall board and external hanging insulation board to improve the overall insulation effect of the building. At the same time, the field filling method is used to solve the problem of discontinuity of insulation of traditional modular prefabricated buildings. On the south side of the building, passive sliding doors with good performance are used to improve the performance of thermal insulation. The building has 54 (6X9) high-performance double-sided photovoltaic modules on the roof, which are used as the sole source of energy for daily hot water, cooking, air conditioning and other uses. The solar panel power generation efficiency is 20kwh/㎡, which can completely meet the daily energy consumption of the building and achieve self-sufficiency


It uses heavy steel prefabricated module for rapid assembly construction. In the whole life cycle of the building, different demolition increases and combinations can be made according to the site changes and the use needs of the elderly at different stages, so as to meet the needs of different people at different times. The heavy steel structure of the main body of the building, the wooden grille on the exterior of the building and the wooden structures of the building can be recycled after the end of the life of the building. The building uses a membrane filtered reclaimed water recycling system that collects water from the kitchen, bath and shower as well as rainwater, which is treated for daily watering and electric vehicle cleaning to reduce water consumption
