A notable design collaboration between the traverso-vighy structure studio and the University of Padua’s Department of Technical Physics led to the event of Residence TVZEB, an experimental zero power constructing. The new challenge was particularly constructed to accommodate an environmentally-sound structure studio and is situated in a couple of kilometers from the historic middle of Vicenza, Italy.
The dwelling has a complete floor of one hundred ninety sq. meters and was constructed from elements, combining CNC machined and handcrafted elements: “The larch glulam and galvanized metal construction is suspended alongside two longitudinal strains of the inspiration and was dry assembled on website: all constructing elements are constructed from recyclable and/or recycled supplies and may be dismantled. The constructing might be disassembled on the finish of its life cycle and its supplies could be separated and recycled, restoring the location to the pure panorama“. The residence is solely fueled by inner power sources (wooden combustion, photo voltaic and geothermal energies).
