the tvzeb construction

July 17, 2013

tvzeb is an expression of temporary and reversibility.

Display in sequence the assembly of the building allows us to enter into the logic in which was concieved the project. Every single construction element and structural node is designed with high precision and in order to reduce assembly time and make possible a woven production and cooperation between design, technology and craft knowledges.

tvzeb è espressione di temporaneità e reversibilità.

Visualizzare in sequenza il montaggio dell’edificio ci permette di entrare nella logica in cui è stato concepito il progetto. Ogni singolo elemento costruttivo e nodo strutturale è pensato e disegnato con alta precisione  per ridurre i tempi di assemblaggio e rendere possibile una produzione intrecciata e una cooperazione tra sapienze progettuali, tecnologiche e artigiane.

the video has been conceived and produced in collaboration with Marta Frizzo (ISAI)

traverso-vighy return to zero

lightness

July 1, 2013

tvzeb is an experimental zero energy building brought to fruition by virtue of a cooperative endeavour between the traverso-vighy architecture studio and the University of Padua’s Department of Technical Physics.
Nestled in the wooded hills a few kilometers from the historic center of Vicenza, the building was conceived to prominently feature a new environmentally-sound architecture studio.
The goal of the project was to develop a low-impact building that blended seamlessly into the surrounding natural setting and exemplified the visual, renewable energy and user well-being resources of its context both in form and function.
Similarly to other architectural projects developed by the studio, the building structure was designed and manufactured in parts by a network of small industrial and craft companies, combining CNC machined and handcrafted components.
This reflects the project’s firm relationship to the concept of potential reversibility and respect for the land: the building can be disassembled at the end of its life cycle and its materials can be separated and recycled, restoring the site to the natural landscape.
The materials and external finishes were conceived to simulate the surrounding environment, in an effort to quietly insinuate the studio’s presence within the landscape and to embody its transitory nature.

tvzeb è un edificio sperimentale ad energia zero, nato dalla collaborazione tra lo studio di architettura traverso-vighy e il Dipartimento di Fisica Tecnica dell’Università di Padova.
Obiettivo del progetto è stato quello di inserirsi nel modo più leggero possibile nel contesto naturale e di assorbire da esso tutte le potenzialità visive, energetiche, e legate al benessere dei futuri utenti.
L’edificio, come in altre esperienze progettuali dello studio, è stato disegnato e costruito per parti, da una rete locale di piccole aziende industriali ed artigiane, unendo componenti lavorate da macchine a controllo numerico e lavorazioni manuali.
La sua struttura in larice lamellare e acciaio zincato è sospesa sulle due linee di fondazione longitudinali ed è completamente assemblata a secco: tutte le parti dell’edificio sono di fatto smontabili e realizzate con materiali riciclabili e/o riciclati.
Tutto questo lega l’edificio ad un concetto di reversibilità e di rispetto del territorio: alla fine della sua vita può essere smontato, i suoi materiali separati e riciclati e il suo sito restituito al paesaggio in cui è inserito.
I materiali e le finiture esterne sono pensate per essere facilmente assimilabili alla natura circostante, nel tentativo di insinuarsi con leggerezza sul terreno e di mantenere la caratteristica di transitorietà.

daylight funnel

December 9, 2012

TVZEB (traverso-vighy zero energy building) is an experimental building brought to fruition by virtue of a cooperative endeavour between the traverso-vighy architecture studio and the University of Padua to meet new EU standards requiring that all new public buildings from 2020 to be zero-energy buildings.  Natural daylight plays a fundamental role in the project both in terms of indoor climatic conditions and in terms of visual comfort and wellbeing of the building occupants.The building was conceived as a “daylight funnel” facing south, incorporating a design that maximizes sunlight exposure during the winter months and excludes direct radiation entirely during summer months.

Tvzeb, è un edificio sperimentale ad energia zero, ragionato per rispondere alla Direttiva Europea 2010/31/EU. La forma dell’edificio è stata disegnata per massimizzare l’ingresso di radiazione solare diretta nei mesi invernali e per escluderla completamente nei mesi estivi. La facciata Sud è caratterizzata dal portico solare e dai tendaggi filtranti automatizzati del piano terra.

landscape view

December 1, 2012

The design concept of the building is centered on user well-being – the building was conceived to prominently feature a new environmentally-sound studio for architects traverso-vighy – and an ongoing relationship with the natural setting: integration with nature, landscape views, and ample  use of daylight afford the occupants with a heightened experience of the seasonal and circadian changes in light.

L’edificio è rivolto verso l’ambiente e in relazione costante con il contesto naturale che lo circonda. L’affaccio sul bosco e sulla valle sottostante fa partecipare del cambiamento delle stagioni dei ritmi solari e circadiani.
