The Beehive is a modular facade unit that cools your space through a combination of evaporative cooling and natural ventilation. Envelope cooling is the practice of using various passive/ active cooling techniques to reduce the heat gain through the building envelope. This in turn reduces the cooling load of the spaces inside and results in energy savings. Using the Beehive as a second skin for your facade, which is thoughtfully designed to reduce the cooling demand of your spaces drastically, you can save energy & electricity bills.
Using the Beehive as a second skin for your facade, which is thoughtfully designed to reduce the cooling demand of your spaces drastically, you can save energy & electricity bills. It fits in on your window or wall, and acts as a cooling device in the summer and a beautiful art installation in the winter!
The Beehive enhances natural ventilation through the fluid dynamic shape of terracotta pots and sucks in the warm, outside air through each pot. The smart sensor based water distribution system intelligently drips water onto the pots by sensing the micro climate.
This water gets cooled through the action of evaporative cooling by the pots. When the outside air comes in contact with the chilled water, it gets cooled and the system releases hot air inside the space.
Water used by the system is sensitively conserved by using a recycling system built into the Beehive.
With envelope Cooling, CoolAnt reduces the load of other cooling systems too, reducing electricity bills.
Made from earth using traditional craft by local artisans, every aspect of this product is nature friendly.
Natural and Cross Ventilation in our spaces, leads to better air quality, the air is not only cool but also fresh, enhancing air quality!
With modular pots and flexible framework, it is possible to arrange CoolAnt as per individuals needs and aesthetics.
CoolAnt can reduce the heat absorbed by the building due to its insulation properties and also acts as a cool facade.
Energy consumed by CoolAnt compared to other mechanical cooling solutions is 10x lower.
