La casa sustentable de Casa FOA


Me gustó mucho el espacio 41 de Casa FOA en el CMD. Está diseñado por los arquitectos Constanza Nuñez y Gabriel Pires Mateus del estudio Gruba junto con Ecomujeres. Obtuvo la primera mención al diseño y la arquitectura del espacio, mejor diseño de baño (Roca) y una mención a la iluminación y el uso eficiente de la energía (Edesur) en los premios de Casa FOA.

En este espacio se plantean soluciones sustentables a las cuales se le suma el aporte de contenidos del libro “La Casa Sustentable”, publicado por Ecomujeres con el apoyo de la Fundación UOCRA, como por ejemplo:
• Reutilización de aguas grises (bacha de baño y cocina) para la descarga del inodoro.
• Diseño de Iluminación eficiente y utilización de artefactos/lámparas de bajo consumo.
• Ahorro de energía en electrodomésticos.
• Ciclo de Vida de los Productos.
• Gestión adecuada de los residuos.
• Reutilización y revalorización de residuos.
• Compostaje de residuos orgánicos.
• Materiales reutilizados, reciclados y renovables.

El mobiliario está diseñado en base a maderas reutilizadas y diferentes maderas reconstituidas certificadas, haciendo uso racional del material a través del corte computarizado y la utilizando de encastres en lugar de pegamentos para facilitar el desarme una vez finalizado el ciclo de vida del producto.

Los productos de la zona de descanso se confeccionaron a mano, utilizando telas naturales y relleno de algodón orgánico producido bajo pautas de Comercio Justo. Se incorporaron los beneficios terapéuticos de  la aromaterapia y gemoterapia  mixturando rellenos de semillas, hierbas aromáticas, flores, piedras y microcristales.

Junto a la ventana hay una huerta con productos orgánicos para integrar el concepto de consumo.


Un detalle que me pareció divertido y novedoso fue el suelo del baño con tapitas de plástico de colores.


•  Banquito “Willy”: de piezas encastradas (unidas sin pegamentos) realizado en madera reconstituida (MDF) y asiento realizado con pelotitas de tenis reutilizadas.
•  Banquito “Uno”: banquito realizado en una única pieza de cartón, que resiste el peso de una persona gracias a la forma lograda mediante el plegado.
Una vez finalizada la vida útil de los banquitos se pueden separar junto a las cajas de cartón para su reciclado.


Asiento “ juego de encastres”: sillón de piezas encastradas (unidas sin pegamentos) realizado en madera reconstituida (MDF). Almohadón en fieltro de lana (PLANAR). Una vez finalizada la vida útil de la mesa, se puede desarmarse fácilmente para su reciclado.
