We know well that every building intervention leaves a footprint on our planet. This is why we have a profound responsibility to build cities and buildings that consume as little resources as possible during their life-cycle, that are resilient and whose functional and aesthetic sense remains valid over time, beyond just our generation.
This responsibility guides our design approach to architecture. As architects and engineers, we look beyond the immediate challenges of the individual project and work to transform critical issues into future benefits.
The first stages of design account for 80% of how a building will behave energetically. For this reason, from the very first steps we integrate energy simulations into the design with Building Information Modeling and Building Environmental Modeling, with an ever-increasing level of in-depth analysis, following step by step the progress of the design phases.
To ensure maximum reliability of our projects, we perform Daylighting and Energy Simulations with EDSL TAS in dynamic regime according to ASHRAE 90.1, EPC & Part L2A, ISO Standards, CIE 171: 2006 and energy simulations of the building-plant system with MC4 Software according to UNITS 11300.
We also integrate parametric modeling with Rhinoceros and Grasshopper in order to evaluate the effects of sun shading and orientation, as well as BIM models such as Revit with IES VE and Insight for the integration of different and complementary specialties.
