A unique building integrated photovoltaic concept part habitation, part yacht and part submarine, totally self-sufficient energy generator, non-polluting and in unison with its natural surroundings, Solar Floating Resort is invented by Italian Industrial Designer, Michele Puzzolante consists of several hospitality structures that integrates thin films photovoltaic and vacuum insulation.
SFR is composed of a central tower, a deck with thirty-two modules and an habitation part with twenty modules. Each module is composed of two skins in composite balsa reinforced fiberglass that has been extensively used in the naval industry due to its lightweight and high structural performances.
The outside skin integrates thinfilms photovoltaic that absorbs sunlight energy and the inside skin integrates thin films photovoltaic that absorbs artificial lighting energy generated by the electrical bulbs. Between the two skins there is a thirty centimeters vacuum insulation thanks to the airtightness properties of the composite balsa reinforced fiberglass.
