Project ENYA ENYA means "Source of Life"  in Irish/Celtic mythology This is how we see our houses - they should be a Source of Life , Peace, Joy and Security for the Inhabitants. To achieve this goal we put all our Energy and Passion  into the construction and planning of our SOTA-DOMUS Houses . To express this claim we have given our first big house project the name ENYA - Source of Life We have thought long and hard about how our first big project should look like. Should it be a luxurious villa, a small apartment house, a family home ...? So we decided on a house that meets the greatest need, anywhere in the world. The need for affordable housing is constantly increasing as the world population grows. On the other hand, resources are rapidly diminishing. After water, concrete is one of the most processed materials in the world. The production of concrete is one of the biggest climate killers we have. With our project "ENYA" we want to prove that it is possible to build a house with a minimum of materials and that it meets all environmental aspects. With "ENYA" we want to prove that inexpensive apartments can have extreme comfort. With "ENYA" we want to prove that ultra good insulation not only saves an extreme amount of energy and relieves the environment, but we want to prove that it leads to an increase in the quality of living and to an improvement in the health of living.
We   opted   for   a   Frame-Module   Construction    method   because   it   offers   the   greatest   advantages   in   combination   with   our   SOTA-DOMUS construction technology. The SOTA-Domus  components are extremely light and at the same time very stiff with the lowest material consumption. By   combining   SOTA-DOMUS    material   and   Frame-Module   Construction    we   will   build   houses   at   an   incredible   Speed   and   with   a Quality and technical Features  are absolutely unique. Why is this so? We will explain this in detail here. Let us start with the static aspects: Setting   up   such   a   structure   is   quick,   easy,   cheap   and very useful. Such   support   systems   are   a   solid   system   that   can   be made in any size and height. These    systems    are    not    only    very    strong,    but    also earthquake-proof. The   SOTA-DOMUS   modules   are   very   suitable   for   this type   of   construction,   because   they   are   very   light   and   at the same time extremely rigid. The   lightness   allows   structural   systems   that   only   have   to carry a fraction of the weight of the previous systems. This saves a lot of material and costs. The stiffness of the SOTA-DOMUS modules strengthens the structural    system    extremely    by    absorbing    the    complete transverse forces of the structure. This    makes    the    entire    structure    extremely    safe    from    wind    an d earthquakes. Frame systems with this design have weaknesses in lateral forces- see arrow. The SOTA-DOMUS modules  are non-positively clamped  to the   supporting   structure,   thus   absorbing   the   complete transverse forces. In   combination   with   the   highly   rigid   SOTA-DOMUS   modules ,   the supporting     structure     achieves     an     extraordinarily     good     static strength. In   addition,   the   SOTA-DOMUS   modules    are   real   Lightweights   and   therefore   only place a small load on the supporting structure. Especially   in   the   case   of   strong   earthquakes,   the   high   static   properties   and   the   low   masses   will   protect   the   inhabitants   of   our   future SOTA-DOMUS houses from strong earthquake amplitude s. You can find more information on our page: Earthquakes Further Advantages of the frame structure and the SOTA-DOMUS modules: The easy insertion of the modules into the frame structure. The    lightweight    modules    can    be    lifted    and    placed    with simple lifting gear without any effort. They    can    also    be    easily    removed    from    the    frame    and exchanged for other modules. These    possibilities    make    it    possible,    even    after    years ,    to change   the   room   structures    in   such   a   way   that   they   can easily adapt to market conditions. Thus, as shown in our video, out of a possible 60 100 sqm apartments 240 25 sqm apartments, for students or hotels and much more. Also the combination is always possible. The SOTA-DOMUS frame-module construction offers you all possibilities at any time. Our houses remain immovable properties , but they become   „SOTA-DOMUS Adaptable-Properties“ This property is particularly important because SOTA-DOMUS  will build houses for "Eternity" . Further    Advantages    -    Closed-Facade with    simultaneous    Fire-Protection    for    the supporting Structure. The    SOTA-DOMUS    Frame-Module    Construction-Method   can   easily   be   applied   to   create   a   Closed   Facade   that   can   be designed in All Variations . More  here If    a    closed    facade    is    required,    the    modules    are    installed without front panel. Specially shaped front panels are t hen inserted subsequently. The Heel in the Front-Panels  ensures that the      Front-Panel on      the      one      hand hermetically closes the front and on   the   other   hand   absorbs   the Transverse-Forces. After   the   installation   of   the   front   panels,   the   result   is   a   clo sed facade. This   is   not   only   interesting   because   of   the   visual   appearance,   but   the   SOTA-DOMUS panels are fire retardant. The   supporting   structure   is   protected   by   the   fire-retardant   SOTA-DOMUS   from   overheating   and   softening   and   thus   from losing its carrying properties. You can see here how even thin SOTA-DOMUS panels prevent fire and the penetration of heat. A house made of SOTA-SOMUS panels prevents the spread of fire from outside the house or from inside the house. How such a fire can lead to much Death and Suffering, you can see here and why this is Impossible with SOTA-DOMUS Panels. The   SOTA-DOMUS   Modues    are   suspended   spatially   separated by the  frame supporting structure. The   distance   between   the   modules   is   determined   by   the   design   of the supporting structure. This   spatial   distance   between   the   modules   permanently   prevents sound transmission from one module to another module -  Structure-Borne Sound is excluded. Structure-Borne Sound  is the most difficult sound type to eliminate . Why this is so, we demonstrate in this short video. Structure-Borne   Sound   can   only   be   eliminated   permanently   by Decoupling the individual Vibrating- Systems . With     the     SOTA-DOMUS     Frame-Module      construction,      the individual modules are ideally decoupled from each other. This   means   in   Practice   -   you   only   hear   your   Neighbour   when he visits you at  your hom e. The   spaces   between   the   modules   are   the   ideal   Installation-   Platforms. They   can   be   used   to   route   all   media   simply   and   easily   to where it is needed. The   installation   within   the   modules   is   carried   out   according   to   the S OTA-DOMUS Skirting-Board Principle . You can learn more about this principle here.

Basic Advantages of the Pre-Produced Module Construction Prefabricated Modules and Components enable incredible construction speeds  on the construction site. The Prefabricated Modules and Components  only need to be installed This means that even extremely large building structures can be erected and ready for move-in within a very short time. The short construction time on the building site results in major cost savings . All Components and Modules  are manufactured under ideal Conditions  in a partially automated  and certified work process . The   prefabrication   of   the   modules   and   components   is   carried   out   under   industrial   standards   -   quality   and   production   speed   at   the highest level. All industrial advantages of today and the future flow directly into the production. The   conventional   construction   method,   which   takes   place   mainly   on   the   building   site,   is   carried   out   under   the   worst   conceivable conditions. The   "non-quality"   that   is   produced   on   the   construction   site   culminates,   for   example   in   Switzerland,   in   the   fact   that   over   70%   of   all   legal disputes can be attributed to construction faults. An optimized, partially automated, certified production process within a production company is unbeatable. This type of construction is without doubt the future The entire industrial production processes are in a phase of radical change . Faster and faster processors and artificial intelligence will turn our future world upside down. With SOTA-DOMUS Construction Technic  we will participate in this upheaval, we will not only Revolutionize Construction Technology with our construction materials, but also with the production of components and modules using the most Modern Techniques . We will push ahead with the developments of the new INDUSTRY 4.0 and consistently implement them in our production - for the Benefit of our Customers and the Environment. In the Future, the machines will be fully automated to produce buildings Designed by Architects directly and immediately. The   New   Age   of   Digitalization    will   not   only   produce   better,   more   sustainable   and   affordable   buildings ,   but   buildings   will   become Individual without Limits. With SOTA-DOMUS, the Future of Building Technology has already Arrived.
SOTA-DOMUS Future Technology inside and outside the House Here   we   will   talk   in   detail   about   the   use   of   Novel   Techniques    in   our   Future-Homes ,   which   will   make   living   in   SOTA-DOMUS Homes  not only more Sustainable, but also very Comfortable and Healthy. We will report on the new Self-Climbing Lift System, which will replace all local lift systems. With it, Many house Inhabitants  can be moved at the Same Time and get off Directly in their Flat . The   new   lift   system   is   controlled   with   new   Intelligent   Algorithms    in   such   a   way   that   as   many   users   as   possible   come   to   their apartments quickly and efficiently. There   will   be   variations   where   the   Residents   of   a   SOTA-DOMUS   Skyscaper   will   be   able   to   drive   directly   with   their   city   car   to their 53 floor apartment. We will report about new house concepts and much more. We   will   present   SOTA-DOMUS   House   Concepts    where   the   roof   terraces   are   connected   to   each   other,   creating   Huge   Parks   in the airy heights  that are Safe and their vegetation Purifies the Air . These "Heavenly Gardens"  will not only serve to Green the Cities , but also to Compensate for the Sealed, built-up areas . We   will   present   calculations   on   how   Future   novel   Reinforcing   Materials    and   the   SOTA-DOMUS   Lightweight-Construction Method  will radically change the Building Statics. You can get a foretaste here. We live in a time of „Technical Miracles“ which makes many things possible that once seemed Unthinkable. We will use these "Miracles" consistently in our SOTA-DOMUS Production  and in our houses. Stay tuned and have a look at our website again soon, we will inspire you.
