Content

architecture from concept to built form Our main goal is to describe the design process, the architectural solutions and the detailing choices of a built work in a chronological order. The dream – that is also the ambition – is to tune at the best the structure of this on-line manual and to spread around its template in order to amplify the power of collecting and publishing in a such huge way that in a few years we could arrive at the largest open source and most browsed utility for architectural students not only in Europe.

Project description:

Casa sulla Morella-Andrea Oliva

History of Commission:

Thanks to an amnesty it was possible to demolish some disused agricultural buildings and rebuild the same volume increased of 20% in another part of the lot. Initially there was a contractor who wanted to build a house to sell. Following the evolution of the project led the architect to identify himself more and more with the house. So, the architect decided to keep the house for himself and build the contractor’s house in another lot.

Main architectural ideas:

In this project, there are three important issues: the recognition of a historical matrix(linear house, Roman land division, the terramare, the dead door) and then the aware insertion of the house into the landscape and a functional program, made of compromises, rigor and rationality.

Project description

To the borders of the country of Castelnovo Sotto, between the stream Morella and a roman road, in a landscape context characterized from channels, ditches, rows, shrubby stains, gardens, villas and agricultural houses it places the “House on the Morella”. Inserted between rural landscape and observer to 60 mt from the road, suspended by the ground to protection of the tall stratum of superficial water and to memory of the installations “terramare”, the residence is composed of two staggered elements to northeast: the porch or climatic mitigator and the housing space or insulating body. With an orientation of 18° toward west the house exploits to the best the natural contributions that, because of the geometry of the porch, of the ample surfaces south glass door and of the flowing obscuring, they anticipate the opening to the “winter sun” and the protection from the “afternoon summer sun.” The study about the solar axonometries has allowed, therefore, to opportunely appraise the incidence of the sun on the wrap and get into proportion the fixed screenings of the vertical settings and the horizontal shutters and the mobile screenings of the flowing panels. The combination of some characters of the agricultural houses they are proposed through a reason euclidea, that in the key form-function, distills elements as the “porta morta” (passing space in the residence with scope of ventilation), the “sporto di gronda” ( coverage’s extension for protection of the vertical masonries) and the “portico” (integrated coverage or juxtaposed for the protection of open and external spaces of the building).

The residence has a structure in bearing walls (smaller presence of thermal bridges), constituted by bricks

with pores, of 38 cm, coupled to a layer of coat insulator on the external side of 10 cm, the attics are made of tiles and concrete with riddles in reinforced concrete, coibentate and separated while the coverage had a layer of 22 cm of isolation, that is coupled to a coverage mantle in corrugate iron, draining, connected to a system that pick up the rain water. The windows are in plywood with low emissive glass and gas argon. The plant design is integrated with domotic and allows a reduction of the consumptions through the control of the temperature of the single rooms, the predisposition for an efficient job of the great electrical appliances, the automatic turning off of the lights in empty places, the checked generation of warm water for sanitaries and the regulation of the use times for each single instruments. The heat system is constituted by radiant panels feeded by a low condensation boiler while the sanitary warm water is integrated from panels solar, places on the coverage, where an integrated photovoltaic system for 6 Kw is in progress of realization. The residence is endowed with a mechanized system for the recycle of the air, that bring the scheduled consumption for the heating to 5,19 kWh / mq per year.

Final proposal

final proposals model: the “porta morta” in Emilias rural houses was a space between the residential part of the house and the working part. Air could pass through the “porta morta” so smells couldn’t reach the residential part of the house and also big machinery could pass throught this “door”. The architect think this rural houses element in a new way © Andrea Oliva 2006 Casa sulla Morella - Andrea Oliva

Appendix


Office presentation

Andrea Oliva graduated in Architecture at the Polytechnic of Milan in 1998. Since 2001 he works in research and is an adjunct professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Engineering of the University of Parma. In 2000 he founded the “cittaarchitettura� conducting the business of design at different scales by seeking new spatial solutions in the context of the contemporary landscape through a particular attention to the issues of energy sustainability. The experimental dimension is accompanied by a full professional competence that takes advantage of expert advice (structures, equipment, roads, economy, landscape, artwork, lighting) to respond to complex and design programs. He has designed and built public buildings, residential, commercial and industrial and hotel complexes, as well as public spaces, urban planning and landscape projects, urban and historical redevelopment projects, and has participated in numerous national and international competitions and won several awards and is active in the assembly and the interior design. The works and projects have been exhibited and published in Italian and international journals.
