Concrete House Doubles As Large-Scale Water Filtration System
The RainHouse is a building that collects run-off and filters it through the structure.
At the recent Milan Design Week, Budapest-based designer concrete firm IVANKA presented a demonstration model of its The Water of Life project which highlights an innovative rainwater management system.
The RAINHOUSE is a building that collects rain and turns it into high quality drinking water. The building is made with IVANKA’s bio-concrete, a material that has a PH neutral orientation and is bio-compatible with water. What makes the technology built into the RAINHOUSE different from other filtration technologies is that the system filters raw rain water physically and in a natural way, without the need for additional chemicals, to produce sun-distilled drinking water of the highest quality.
