Casa N


Casa N

Energetical upgrade of a single-family house from the 60´s with the creation of a solar greenhouses and an indoor pool on the south side.

The energetical upgrade and the enlargement of a house of the ’60s are an opportunity to create a class A building with a renewed appearance.
On the three floors of the building there are two apartments, one on the first floor and another on the second floor with a mezzanine open towards the double-height living room.
The ground floor houses common areas and provides access to the swimming pool’s front with a solarium made of iron and glass facing south, located above the underground garage.

The criteria of the bioclimatic project have guided the choice of materials and the composition of the volumes: the stairway is in the north, on the south side large windows have been made with a tilt in relation to the incidence of sunlight, the wood fiber isolates the facades east and west, while a coat in cellular cls isolates the wall to the south.
On the west-facing façade, the balconies are shielded by adjustable aluminum sunbreakers, the same ones that protect the west side of the solar greenhouses.

The roof is made of Rheinzink and does not have any extrusion, except on the south side where it stretches to protect the greenhouses and accommodate the photovoltaic panels.

  • Qbo Architetti Associati

    Qbo Architetti Associati was founded in 2007 on the initiative of six young architects trained at the Turin Polytechnical university. It is a group of professionals who collaborate with no hierarchies and generate value for themselves and their clients through the realization of shared projects. Those arise from the union of the skills, specializations, attitudes and personal charisms of the individual professionals and reflect the continuous choral research for always new solutions and paths. The different specializations of the working group, ranging from bio-architecture, lighting, acoustics, industrial design and accessible architecture, allow in fact to manage the project path in a multidisciplinary manner. Qbo's projects are comfortable, sustainable and durable for living spaces tailored to dreams and needs. The studio has particular experience in residential and office spaces. Through training experiences abroad of the partners, the studio has gained technical and professional knowledge of languages such as Spanish, English, German, French and Portuguese. The studio operates in the territory of the Turin area and in the Cuneo area of Alba.
