ATTIC RENOVATION FOR PRIVATE HOUSE
The project regards the renovation of an attic in the historic city center of Rimini. The aim of the project is to convert an old attic into a loft apartment creating a new structural wooden shell, removing the degraded cement-brick roof. The structure degradation requires the demolition of the existing roof and the reconstruction with new material and technologies in order to achieve a seismic improvement. It is possible to reduce loads and guarantee a best seismic response choosing a wooden structure.
Moreover, the existing roof does not provide any type of thermal insulation creating risk of water infiltration. According to the client a new roofing package was design to improve the thermal performance of the environment. The natural lighting is enhanced by opening a large skylight in the west slope and introducing a glazed façade in the east side. The renovation allows to obtain an accurate solar exposure throughout the year, creating a modern space with innovative materials.
