DUOPUU – in collaboration with the editor and content manager Giuliano Geri – is working on a new communication program for Gandelli Group, an Italian leader in timber building construction.
With our more than ten-year experience in executive design we are following closely the construction process of Gandelli Group’s strategic projects, offering consultancy, documenting the building phases and preparing diverse communication material, from photography and drawings to copy, in order to provide a comprehensive insight into their innovative sustainable timber construction solutions.
DUOPUU is photographing the main construction phases of the sustainable wooden resort "CampZero" at Champoluc (Aosta) designed by BladIdea architectural office and build by Essepi and Collini Lavori. The hotel is characterized by a system of 2/3-storey modules completely made using the advanced X-Lam prefabricated technique formulated and tested by Essepi. Massive wooden panels with preinstalled wooden windows are built in factory and ready to be transported on site safely and assembled together quickly to form the modules.
DUOPUU designed the new corporate visual identity for Essepi factory, a brand leader in the sustainable buildings sector which specialises in the manufacture of highly energy efficient windows, X-Lam wood massive panels (CLT) and multistory wooden building construction. DUOPUU designed catalogs website, advertising campaigns… working with the photographer Giulio Boem in order to create a poetic atmosphere where the industrial products seem to arise from nature.
DUOPUU is photographing the main construction phases of a 5-storey ecological wooden building designed by Essepi for the University of Trento. The dorm will house 140 students from all over the world in the highest timber university building ever built in Italy. The structural elements are innovative seismic-resistant prefabricated 3D-cells totally made of XXL cross laminated wood. The 3D-cells built in the factory feature preinstalled Essepi wooden windows, acoustic-thermal insulation panels and internal gypsum board. They are ready to be transported on site safely and assembled together quickly by Collini Lavori. Here the interview of Paolo Simeone on this project by the Italian Construction Innovation REbuild Platform.
