Private Villa: Casa_SSM
This was a project for a New Villa developed on the northwest of Italy, Monferrato Coutryside Area,
Piedmont, that follow principle of bioarchitecture.
The development of the new private residence , is based on the juxtaposition of two main bodies , the
master house and an annex of service, united by a single large roof , oriented and designed to maximize
solar gain during the winter and to protect and reduce the penetration of the same during the summer.
A third building , detached from its predecessors is thegarage.
The idea and the need was to unify to the local context , according to precise input of the client, who
wanted the new building to dialogue with the rural buildings in the area of intervention .
The development of the large roof and with double height porches, uses this input to create a functional
appliance to the attributes of ecoeffectiveness
that we wanted to achieve, in a building made of
prefabricated timber structure, characterized by the use of natural and sustainable materials.
The technology chosen was wood frame, with composite wood panels walls, natural insulation with wood
fiber, natural hemp fiber, etc.
The outer surface finishes are natural limebased
plaster, wooden windows with double glazing system,
waxed concrete floors finishing for the ground floor and outside areas, oak wood oil finished to the upper
The new building achieves the goal of energy class A, and is equipped with heating and cooling radiant
floor, air humidity control system and mechanical ventilation system.
The structure rests on a reinforced concrete base, rwith 32 piles, but without basement floor.
Both architectural and Interior design developed by our office, as per Landscape Design
