Solar Decathlon Middle East 2018 – Team Serbia
By connecting traditional means of architectural design and contemporary technological principles in an innovative way, Twist BOX project, designed for desert climate conditions, provides a sustainable and adaptable space. New technological solutions are being applied with the aim of achieving a better quality lifestyle in areas with extreme climate and scarce resources.
Reflective outer skin, low thermal mass of the inner skin, along with the innovative geometry of the house itself - allow our house to breathe easier, consume energy smarter and operate with the desired functions without any difficulties.
An innovative sun shading system with brise soleils that allow controlled sun penetration into the house give our house this glamorous aesthetic that makes it unique and authentic. The house features the PV system connected to the AC grid via an inverter for generating electricisity for the household devices.
Smart house technology system is operated by a remote control, a cellular phone, a computer or a touch screen with high level of functionality and comfort, followed by an economical demand side. Plus the opperation of some home devices can be addapted to the available energy optained by the PV system.
Twist Box team consists of students and professors from Faculties of Architecture, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and from Faculty of Technology and metallurgy.

on its way to Dubai
Sponsored by DHL, our TwistBOX model is flying to Dubai for the exhibition! We had so much fun making our house 25 times smaller than in real life and we cannot wait to build the real one! Our model will be presented at Dubai Solar Show and other exhibitions during the year. Our model is already in Dubai, next are us.
Photo shoot of the updated team members is always so fun! Everyone gathers around and have a great time. Energy is positive, everyone’s happy and laughing and we motivate each other to keep going, to be better, to give 110% and to show the world what the real twist in sustainable solar architecture really is!
