Project Description

Maracaibo Venezuela. It is a city with electrical problems like the whole country, a large percentage of houses in this city are attached to each other so they only have a light input on the front facade of the house. The electrical problem has been shaking the city for years, removing up to 12 hours a day of electric light, which affects the quality of life and the way of living in the home, these having a front window as the only source of natural light makes half of the house has to be illuminated with an artificial source and having prolonged power cuts makes half of the house blind, also the hot weather makes air renewal even more difficult.
