Studio Bas Sala designs and develops in cooperation with city developers from SPIN, the “Regenton” water management system, aiming to respond to the current and growing water issues in the urban places and to make the city future-proof. The rainfall sewers are often overloaded, while in dry periods only tap water is used to irrigate the gardens. Moreover, climate change is one of the reasons of the increasing hardening of public space. Due to asphalt and pavements the rainwater hardly flows.
The smart rain barrel project is more than promising for local sustainability, along with an attractive design as a water storage product. The project can be applied in 3 scales; the individual level (in houses), building level (offices) and neighbourhood level.
