Modica, like other historical centers of the Val di Noto, owes its special urban configuration to the uncommon nature of the area, combined with the various phenomena of human activity. Many of the homes found in the old part of town are attached homes, and are often an extension to the ancient caves, inhabited since prehistoric times.

Podere Navigliano is an antique tuscan farmhouse in the heart of Sienese Clays where nature and history are the undisputed protagonists. This project is the evolution of thought Smallness which characterized all previous projects of the office.
In this case especially the materials but also the attention to the historical context and the environment are at the heart of the project; the reinterpretation of traditional elements has allowed to find a new language, a new aesthetic inseparably linked to the tradition.

- Size: 300 sqm
- Budget: 30’000 €
- Software used:
- Rhinoceros 3d + Grasshopper an advanced computational modeling tool. We used optimization algorithms to reduce the types of components, the software calculated the length of each flower box side reducing the number of variations. The parametric approach was crucial to find the best oriented production design.The roar was thus chosen as base module, in that it offered a good coverage of the space whilst optimizing the number of components. The base modules are six, from 0.5 sqm to 3 sqm, formed by the combination of 4 different cuts which then compose the sides of the planters, 8 different nodes with as many optimized variations for the joining of the elements. The result is a total area of 300 square meters, consisting of 50 modules and 90 nodal elements.
