materials and building techniques

Reused steel profiles and Wood treated for exteriors were used. As one of the core principles of the studio, sustainability is approached in this project through solar control strategies and passive ventilation. For instance, the wooden lattices angle in the south-east façade provides passive solar heating in winter (solar radiation penetration), and direct solar radiation protection in summer.

To achieve a complex responsive morphology, several parametric tests where run in grasshopper, allowing the evaluation of the skin´s performance and select the best relationship between functioning and aesthetics.

As most studio projects, materials are an honest expression of its nature. Wood is from local source with a basic treatment to be exposed outdoors. Many structural elements where recycled from a roof placed in the old garage area.

The project proves how low budget implementations can offer spatial quality with innovation.
