“漂浮之翼”的概念 | TheFloatWing®concept

在人们日益增长的逃离大城市的混乱与喧嚣的渴望之下,“漂浮之翼”诞生了。不管是为了情侣的浪漫之所,湖中央的容纳一整个家族或者一群朋友的移动房,周末的小屋,久留的庇护所,尝试不一样的生活方式的第一个住地,或是工作之地,“漂浮之翼”都可以在不牺牲舒适感的情况成为这些活动的场所。

The creation of FloatWing® came from the desire to meet a growing need for people to escape the confusion and hustle and bustle of the great city and to approach the Nature. Whether a romantic gateway for two or a mobile house in the middle of a lake for the entire family or a group of friends, a weekend hut, haven for a longer stay or in the context of an alternative lifestyle as a first dwelling or place of work, FloatWing® is a very convenient equipment to engage all this without giving up a good deal of comfort.

FloatWing的概念背后的理念(浮动房屋、隔热、太阳能技术、环境问题、移动、预加工、模块化设计、打包和在标准容器中的调度)都不是真正意义上的创新。但是,它们一起组成了一个高度创新的产品。从许多方面来说,它们在世界市场上是独一无二的。跨学科的开发团队在工作中关系紧密,最终生成了一个优秀的集成产品。其中的造型、材料、设备和尺寸被视为反映了建筑、结构、电器、电子和环境等元素。漂浮之翼由Coimbra大学附属的科学与技术公司“星期五”研发生产的,该公司创始人兼漂浮之翼的项目总监是这所大学的教授。

Token separately, the ideas behind the FloatWing® concept (a floating house, thermal insulation, solar technology, environmental concerns, mobility, pre- fabrication, modular design, packing and dispatching in standard containers, local assembly), were not really innovative. Put together, however, they compose a highly innovative product that is, in many aspects, unique in the world market. The fact that the development interdisciplinary team worked in a close relation, resulted in a very well integrated product where all the technical options, the shapes, the materials, the equipment and the dimensions were always seen as both architectural, structural, electrical, electronic, mechanical and environmental elements. FloatWing® is produced by the company FRIDAY, Science and Technology of Leisure, SA, a spin-off of the University of Coimbra, whose founder and FloatWing’s project director is Full Professor of this University.

设计者在思考产品设计时会联想到山上的平房,悬崖之上的灯塔,山顶上孤立的磨坊,林中的小屋。从这些意向里分别抽取一些部分,再加上流动性、游牧性和预制机制、模块化、能源自治和环境可持续性。这一切生产了一个可以在很长时间内自给自足的浮动的房子。它可以自我产生每年所需能源的90%,减少99%的废水负荷,这些让人们可以在湖水表面舒适安全的生活。船屋在水面以5节的速度行进,如果使用者愿意,他们可以每天按照这个速度前行,到达新地点后将船锚抛下,进行各种水上运动,如划船、滑水、钓鱼等等。这里也是世界上最棒的享受日光浴的地方,晚上还可以仰望星空或者休息。

Our reflection, which could have led to the mountain bungalow or the lighthouse on top of the escarpment, or the isolated mill on the hill crest, or the forest hut, went to get a little of each of these elements, adding to them the mobility and nomadism and adopting the principles of prefabrication, modularity, energy autonomy and environmental sustainability. All this resulted in the creation of a floating house fully independent over a long period of time, that produces up to 90% of its household annual energy needs and reduces by 99% the organic load of its wastewater, which allows living with all the security and comfort over a lake surface, moving at a moderate speed of 5 knots, choosing every day, if that is the will, a new location for anchoring and making it the starting point for a number of water sports such as sailing, rowing, water skiing, fishing, or the appropriate spot for an intellectual activity, or simply the world’s best place to sunbathe, to see the stars or to rest.

模块化 | Modularity

船屋的固定宽度为6米,长度从10米到18米不等,选择多样。无论我们是找一间舒适的工作室,还是带三间浴室的带家具的三居室,船屋可以根据需求进行调整,让自然触手可及。船屋的高度模块化设计(超过三百种可能的不同的标准布局) 适应不断增长的市场需求。它可以便利地存储在两个或三个标准集装箱内,包括其所有组件、设备和家具,然后被运送到世界各地。项目开发于2013年1月开始,历时3年,包括原型的构建,最终达到了“商业化”的阶段。2016年是我们商业化的第一年,销售了5台。目前,开发过程已经稳定,高质量的产品需要3个月的预制和2到3周的安装周期,取决于设备的大小和标准。

With a fixed width of 6 meters and lengths ranging from 10 to 18 meters, the possibilities are almost endless. Whether we look for a cozy studio or a fully furnished three-bedroom house with up to three bathrooms, the freedom of nature is within reach. The house has a highly modular design (more than three hundred possible different standard lay-outs) to fit the needs of a growing market (see ATN 2), can be easily stored in two or three standard containers, including all its components, equipment and furniture, and shipped to almost anywhere on the planet. The project development started in January 2013 and took about three years to reach the stage of “ready for commercialization”, including the construction of a prototype. The year of 2016 was our first year of commercialization, with five units sold. At this moment the development process is already stabilized, with a high quality product that takes three months to be pre-fabricated and two to three week to be mounted on its site, depending on the size and level of equipment.

产品对市场的需求和市场对产品的需求是一致的。这就是为什么“漂浮之翼”现在是一个成熟的产品,且有着更广泛的应用(不仅是房子,但也是一个餐厅,一个酒吧,一个办公室、接待室、会议室、会议室、健身房、水疗甚至酒店)并提供好几种技术选择,例如铝制漂浮器、电动马达、制水设备、船首尾推进器等。产品的营销策略使用经典的方法:在一些主要的国际节目中出现,在一些国际上的建筑网站发表,数字营销等。但是优秀的产品本身是一个成功的营销最重要的资本。

The search for a market to our product came together with the search for a product to our market. That’s why FloatWing® is now a mature product with a wider range of use (not only as a house but also as a restaurant, a bar, an office, a reception room, a conference room, a meeting room, a gym, a SPA or even a hotel) and several technical options available, such as aluminum floaters, electric motorization, water maker equipment, bow and stern thrusters. The marketing strategy is based on a quite classical approach: presence in some major international shows, publication in some reference international revues and architectural sites, digital marketing. The product is good and this is the most important asset for a successful marketing.

机动性、自治和可持续性 | Mobility, Autonomy and Sustainability

这所房子能产生它所需要的所有能量,大部分能量直接来自太阳。它利用对环境影响较少的材料和技术生产,以减少其碳足迹,降低其能源需求。例如,它所有的外部墙壁,地板和天花板都使用宽10厘米的ICB木栓保温层,并使用双层或三层加氩气或氪气玻璃窗,这样使它的室内温度即使在最极端的气候下也可以保持在20到25摄氏度。

The house produces all the energy it needs (see ATN 4), most of which coming directly from the Sun. It has been designed with low environmentally impactful materials and technologies that reduce its carbon footprint and lower its energy needs (see ATN 3). For instance, all its external walls, floor and ceiling are very well insulated with a 10 cm width ICB cork layer and double (or tripe) grazed windows with argon or krypton gaps, making it possible to have an internal 20 to 25 oC warm comfort temperature, even under extreme weather conditions.

它有一个紧凑的活性污泥废水处理中心,可以通过反渗透过滤补充。室内有一个设备齐全的厨房,空调系统和交流发电机。露台上有一个晴天可用的烧烤架,一个红酒柜和一个在气候寒冷的时候用来保持温暖的火炉。所有的设备加起来可以保证一个自给自足的绝好的生活体验。漂浮之翼是一个活动的平台,使用者可以每天在不同的地方醒来。它配有两个舷外发动机,它以5节的巡航速度移动。设计者不希望它行进得过快,因为缓缓前行也是快乐的一部分。

It has a compact activated sludge wastewater treatment plant that may be complemented by an inverse osmosis filtration. With a fully equipped kitchen for everyday use, air conditioning system and AC generator (see ATN 5), a barbecue on the upper terrace for sunny days and a wine cellar and pellet stove to keep us warm on cold days, the list of facilities included guarantees a great living experience in full autonomy. FloatWing® is a mobile platform, enabling the users to wake up in a different place every day. Equipped with two outboard engines, it moves with a cruising speed of 5 knots. We don’t want to go fast as for FloatWingers the ride is part of the pleasure.
