EcoCool / Cooling, Farming, Recycling


The EcoCool system was designed to filter and reuse grey water to cool interior spaces and hydrate the planter at the bottom of the unit. Before being deposited in the planter, water passes through a series of filters disguised as wall tiles that are filled with a filtering mixture of sand and marble. The solution simultaneously cools the air while bringing awareness to water consumption in a visible and memorable way.
