  • 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.

Unboxed – 100% recycable prefab wooden house in Polignano a Mare Town, Italy by Barberio Colella ARC

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: Barberio Colella ARC

Description: “Unboxed”, designed by Micaela Colella and Maurizio Barberio, is the wooden transposition of the typical characters of the Mediterranean house, as a valid alternative to masonry or frame structure buildings. The house is think to be placed in the beautiful town of Polignano a Mare, Apulia. The high standardization of the modules and their total prefabrication, allow to study various solutions easily. This goal is achieved by splitting the building in several basic structural elements designed to be mounted with all the finishes and without thermal bridges. The house is 100% recyclable. It is also completely removable – thus movable – thanks to an innovative foundation made of steel, which allows to reduce or eliminate the excavation. A low inclination roof on the top (5%) allows the installation of solar roof tiles (Tegosolar technology), capable of producing electricity and heat. The house has a clear division between the living and the sleeping area with a glazed corridor/entrance in the middle: a journey in the nature, able to re-establish the contact with the surrounding environment (flow of time) at each passage.
