Case Lampyris

Solduno, Locarno, Ticino, 2015. Eco housing project :

The project involves the construction of three residential buildings in the territory of Solduno, close to Locarno in Ticino. All apartments, in total thirty units, are of different shape to guarantee individual spaces and flexible interiors for different kind of residents and users.

Particular attention was paid to the ecological aspect: the building has in fact a hybrid structure, the structural part is of reinforced concrete while infill walls and divisions are prefabricated wooden elements. The title of the project, “Lampyris”, is the Latin name for fireflies, fascinating insects that since a few years ago populated the Solduno area.
