Italian architect Daniele Menichini has made the Naturalmente Chic in Treviso, Italy.
Finished in 2013, this 678 square foot modern housing module was produced based on an environmentally friendly prefabricated technique.
Naturalmente Chic by Daniele Menichini:
“A new type of accommodation which guests can perceive as an educational game the place grasping the chance to learn the really secret elements of green residing, without having giving up on the comfort and the emotional side of a vacation. An knowledge which helps make visitors value how all the elements of sustainable building maximise the exploitation of the setting energies and resources. The project’s aim is giving rise to a new hotel accommodation technique that is tightly interwoven with its surroundings and prospects to the quality improvement of the worldwide tourism offer you via the blend of distinct modular solutions, from bungalows with bathroom to 2-area apartments. GREEN_ZERO represents the result of the co-operation of companies sharing the very same green DNA, which is without a doubt the true worth additional at the basis of the development and implementation of the whole idea.
The GREEN_ZERO module is a prefabricated architectural technique, in which the structural shell is produced totally from wood it is supplied with a frame and its stratigraphy, of both horizontal and vertical components, is characterised by load-bearing and insulating factors, which let the passage of installations, and the presence of an air chamber, developed to receive a specific assembly in accordance with climate situations and as a result getting awarded the classification KlimaHaus A or KlimaHaus Gold. The cladding outer surface integrates a new thin photovoltaic panel method, which enables to provide the whole set up complicated with the electrical electrical power essential to its working. The zinc-titanium membrane applied to this kind of panel proves highly malleable and therefore makes it possible for to completely fit the curved surfaces of the module and create all the technical factors fundamental to ventilation, management or recovery of rainwater.
Our responsibility in the direction of the environment is in truth the leitmotif of the whole project, which blends the modular architecture of Green-Zero with the interior layout of Naturalmente Chic: a double reference to both the “invisible project” and the “visible project”, which means the constructing in its entirety, including the foundation and structural system, all installations and the use of regional normal resources, as well as all finishing components, lighting, furnishing and furniture, without forgetting the assortment of suppliers and installers which have to make sure the highest feasible common of sustainability.
In distinct, the project’s sustainability comes in the foreground in many elements, such as the photovoltaic cells covering the outdoors surface of the shell and the use of water pumps with a greatest capability of 5 litres per minute. All the rest is hidden beneath the “skin” of the shell, last but not least turning into its beating heart.
The success of this sustainable undertaking depends on the synergy amongst properly-educated costumers, integrated organizing processes, budget maximisation, task management and companies’ choice, all oriented in the direction of the creation of a technique which strives to be entirely sustainable, also in financial terms.”
