The study on modularity stems from the desire to have project standards available already in the preliminary phase that can facilitate the development of the project itself and the certain assessment of costs and time implementation.
These reflections led us to investigate in addition to the theme of modularity and dry prefabricated construction
flexibility to be used, in particular, in the design of health and social welfare structures, using the dry prefabrication system.
The study was aimed at the construction of a new structure intended to accommodate more functions, both health and social-health, carried out in collaboration with the Florence Health Authority, which
is upstream of the care pathway with its hospitals and that, in the course of the care path,
they will transfer patients to the inpatient areas of the new facility.
The feasibility study proposes the construction of a multifunctional social welfare structure, which includes a portion intended for nursing homes and a portion intended for sheltered housing for the elderly.
The lot affected by the feasibility study is located in the municipality of Lissone near the San Gerardo Hospital in Monza.
The structure has an “H” planimetric shape to better adapt to the elongated conformation of the lot, allowing to leave ample green spaces and parking.
The project stems from the desire of wealthy local entrepreneurs to revive the image of a residential village consisting of 197 villas built for the Korean market.
Both the interiors and the exteriors have been revised in terms of aesthetics and functionality in order to restore a new and modern image of the entire village.
The building, conceived with the laminated wood prefabrication technique, was designed as a multifunctional space intended to provide new opportunities for the competitive activity of the city but also useful for increasing the supply of spaces available to schools and associations for basic motor activity.
A multipurpose container, therefore, with an innovative tubular shape with steel cladding and a mixed glass and laminated wood part.
