Combining history and technology for a retrofitting intervention that redevelops the existing building to create contemporary, energy-efficient architecture.
A volume that dialogues with the context and articulates its elevations differently with respect to solar exposure. Contrasting the hectic and stressful life of today with a comfortable lifestyle; the project makes the word comfort, the key to interpretation and inspiration.Leggi tutto
Uncompromising quality, intelligent design, personal safety and the best comfort for everyday life, inside and outside the home, make Living Carignano a residence that combines comfort and coziness. The person is at the center of the design: each space is exciting and shaped around the user’s comfort and needs for privacy or socializing, always with full respect for the environment.
Prefabricated components and durable, photocatalytic and self-cleaning materials for the retrofitting project, capable of transforming the image and energy performance of the building.
The geometries of the existing facades are taken up and enhanced with a grid that dematerializes the volume and makes it more articulate and transparent. Terraces with hanging greenery are created on the south facade, and the windows and doors are full-height.
The intervention is completed by an important sunshade that crowns the roof of the building and protects the terraces on the top floor from the sun’s rays.
