Modular homes around wooden frame walls, simple, fast, ecological and accessible

September 2019
Gallery SYLCAT 1

SYLCAT® is a project of construction of modular homes around wooden frame walls.

There are two main applications of SYLCAT®: RESCOOZ, and OOZWOOD. The RESCOOZ method involves the construction of shelters that can be used in emergency situations such as refugee camps. They provide safety and privacy for its users. On the other hand, the concept of OOZWOOD are bungalows and houses compliant with high level thermal needs and low carbon emissions. The solution works by recycling woods pallets and using them as cinderblocks. By creating a piece of wood that acts a cement between the pallets, they can be assembled as needed. One example would be the creation of a wall for housing. By simplifying the process, the SYLCAT® method is easy to use for building purposes and at a lower cost.
