Projecting an emergency unit

W-Unit is a dwelling unit used in case of emergencies like natural disasters.
The project is relate to the earthquake of L’Aquila (2009) and the study of Abruzzo landscape.

Thanks to the shape and the dimensions of W-Unit, it’s easy to integrate it in each landscape situations. The design started from the trapeze’s shape and with this element we composed several houses, having different final shapes.

W-unit is a complete and also articulated project because it responds to:

  • easiness to build thanks the prefab
  • eco’s standards due to the use of pv pannels on the roof and a very good insulation of the house
  • intergration with the sourrounding.
