Rammed Earth modular housing with photovoltaic windows and roof garden
Modular areas: 6m² |12m² | 22m²
The idea behind this project is to propose a sustainable, modular, residential system that can be tranformed into smaller or bigger areas depending on the number of its residents, their economic background and/or the use of the areas themselves. The main construction is build out of rammed earth, an ecological and easy way of producing space by building walls using natural raw materials such as earth, chalk, lime or gravel.
Designed by Baldasso Cortese, this clean and uncompromised project is a series of spaces that help the building utilise a small site. A palette of natural materials and large expanses of glass help the building “dissolve” into the garden. While all extraneous elements have been meticulously integrated into the building fabric to create simple and strong forms without compromising functionality. Photographer: Peter Clarke Photography.
