MARM_BIVACCO F.LLI FANTON MARMAROLE
The project stems from the observation of the environment of the Dolomites, profiles Marmarole, and stands as one "spur" in the actual skyline, inserted between the crest of the Invalides and the Cimon of Froppa.
The essencial language of construction of the mountain, building up the suggestion of an ancient archetypal construction of incomparable beauty, the fascinating and iconic architectural body redraw the profile of a contemporary "hut" at high altitude. Citing the oldest gimmick built colonization of mountain areas, the new building, which redistributes and reshapes the volume in a thin body of strong vertical character, buy evocative forms.The double pitch roof is modeled on the environmental need: the base is lowered to expand the volume; on a gabled roof is installed a photovoltaic system optimized for the radiation prevailing, the gabled roof oriented to the north rises up opening towards the top of the mountain and creates a tapering of the front facade, to reduce the wind impact, the plant remains close to create the minimum floor space, the volume is extended to be visible from surrounding paths.
