Sustainable Wooden House in Palermo
A project that focuses on sustainability and constant dialogue between structure and nature, designed by architect Alessio Lo Bello for the construction of a small and modern rural house along the northern coast of Sicily, between Palermo and Cefalù.
The natural context and the client's sensitivity to green themes led to the choice of wood as the main material for the entire project, adopting it both as a building material and as a finishing material.
In fact, the structure of the house is made of Xlam, a solid multilayer wood material that, together with the panels in high-density wood fiber, allows the optimal thermal insulation of the house and, as a result, a drastic reduction in consumption and a significant saving on utility costs.
The attention to the lowest possible environmental impact and the reduction to a minimum of soil consumption does not, however, neglect the considerable attention paid to a minimalist and intriguing design, found in every functional area inside or outside.
To enhance the house is also the beautiful landscape in which it is located, among olive trees, waterways and a beautiful view of the horizon of the sea and the city of Termini Imerese.
Let's go deeper into this masterful work of organic architecture that combines great technique to an avant-garde aesthetic.
