Architectural forms

building type and shape of the bio-architectural building

an ecological and economic approach

The forms of the building must necessarily satisfy the pre-existing and the nature of the place.

Not only the distribution of the premises but also the overall shape of the building affects the well-being of the inhabitants of the same and also the economic aspect of living.

building typology

The need to protect the building against solar exposure that can heat up the façade of a building up to 80 °C requires the assessment of thermal, roof and ventilated facade systems.

The need to limit heat exchange with the outside to limit energy consumption to maintain an optimal indoor climate through the plants requires the choice of compact architectural forms.

The complex or more articulated shapes create a larger contact surface and therefore a greater possibility of thermal dispersion.

The sphere, the largest volume with the same surface

The sphere is the geometric shape that allows to limit the surface between the outside and the outside of the house.

Several houses have been built that take their shape from this simple consideration.
