During my work experience at RicciSpaini & Associates, I carried out the technology aspects related to the design of a pneumatic structure covering.
The project is located in a generic area. Outline was to develop a dwelling model which could be repeatable in different kind of landscape.
We chose to develop a rectangular unit construction composed of materials typical of the place where the house is located. Our slogan was: “Hi Tech-Low Tech” in order to explain its distinctive features. In fact, it was completely designed to have a low environmental impact; it was built with stone and local wood and had walls with high thermal inertia. In addition, the only high technological element was an innovative ETFE sliding roof oriented to the south.
