Abstract

How much space do we need for living? In a backcast vision, the living scenario is inscribed in spaces for short stays, concentrates functions strictly necessary to the daily needs of its occupant, and takes the archetypal shape of the “refuge”, naturally inspired but technologically advanced. (Robinson 1982).

The contribution proposes results of an experimental technological design conducted by the “ZEBtwdZEEB” research group of the University of Campania “L. Vanvitelli”, in collaboration with industrial partners, which led to the construction of a prototype of a zero energy building  (3x3m single user residential unit), built with the innovative LGS Construction System in cold-formed steel. Various envelope solutions, which ensure high energy performance, have been designed for it.
