Dak Doos

Dak Doos by Niklas Fiedler

Rethink­ing city rooftops for solar pow­er gen­er­a­tion – mod­u­lar sys­tem in the con­text of urban re-den­si­fi­ca­tion. More than a par­a­sitic rooftop addi­tion, ‘Dak Doos’ is an expand­ed liv­ing space with its own ener­gy gen­er­a­tion through the weath­er-pro­tec­tive tex­tile struc­ture of ASCA‘s organ­ic pho­to­volta­ic tech­nol­o­gy. The col­or­ful shell-shaped awning wraps the facade and the roof of the liv­ing box­es with a smooth tran­si­tion. 

Who For sin­gles, cou­ples and fam­i­lies who want to live indi­vid­u­al­ly accord­ing to their needs for mod­ern liv­ing in the city. Dak Doos offers mod­u­lar expand­ed liv­ing space. 

Why From the vision of depri­va­tiz­ing the roofs of our city, new solu­tions can be devel­oped for more respon­si­ble use of our resources. The short­age of urban hous­ing is increas­ing and the roof exten­sion of an old build­ing is no longer a rar­i­ty. For an eas­i­er and flex­i­ble solu­tion, Dak Doos offer resource-con­scious liv­ing space on roofs of the city with its own ener­gy gen­er­a­tion through mod­ern solar tech­nol­o­gy.

How Due to the ver­sa­til­i­ty in the arrange­ment pos­si­bil­i­ties, Dak Doos Mod­ules on the roof of the exist­ing build­ing is applic­a­ble to diverse cities. The col­or­ful shell-shaped awnings wrapped around the facade and the roof of each liv­ing box­es work as the weath­er pro­tec­tion, the screen­ing, and the shade. The ener­gy gen­er­at­ed by ASCA‘s organ­ic pho­to­volta­ic films can be stored and light­en up the base build­ing as well as the liv­ing box. By open­ing up the court­yard with a stair­case in the build­ing or by an added ele­va­tor, a new floor can be accessed via a walk­way.
