The project of the “5 elements school” has been studied to partecipate to an ANAB ideas competition at the end of a specialization course in ecological design. The aim was to recovery a prefabricated postal structure in disuse, to place beside a second building in BIOARCHITECTURE. The school project was conceived as almost totally passive, but rich in natural materials, certified both as regards the origin and the conveyance to achieve a truly BIO and ethically correct construction.
As a result of modeling in 3D we have verified the passive thermal requirements, the shading, the solar gain, the insulation and the natural lighting of the building, so to get the most comfort for the children. For outside areas we have developed a green project that included children play areas and also areas for learning with a small botanical garden available to children.
