A NEW DECARBONIZED EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOP

DUOPUU is providing the technical consultancy for the executive design of a new net-zero emission small educational workshop designed by Atelier delle Verdure – architecture & landscape studio. The new building entirely made out of CLT structural panels will be almost-100% natural, renewable, recyclable and reusable. The architectural components will be based on certified low embodied carbon materials: cork and wood fibers for the insulate panels and prefabricated cross laminated timber panels for the structures. Moreover, the project is working on ensuring a minimum environmental impact for the construction phases and for the entire lifespan of the building.
