The “Progetto Cellula” applied at a local level aims to provide an example of how things can be produced from what we already have: our waste.
Through selective rather than traditional demolition, we can recover and sell materials for upgrading buildings; from agricultural waste we can produce structural panels, from scraps of cotton and fabric we can create insulating panels to save energy in buildings.
The “Progetto Cellula” provides building designs using completely recycled local materials with high energy efficiency in compliance with national quality standards.
The “Progetto Cellula” provides consulting services to businesses who wish to exploit sustainability and create new products from “waste outputs” in order to reduce costs, create new jobs and leave this world a little better state than how we found it. Furthermore, ecological recycled materials provide points in building sustainability certifications such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and the national ITACA protocol.
The “Progetto Cellula” provides training on selective demolition and sustainability, selling ready for use recycled building materials.
Recycle, Recover, Reinvent!
For the local economy and for a clean planet!
A true sustainable friendly architect is one who uses previous built-up areas and allows the right amount of space for the local flora and fauna; uses recycled materials rather than limited virgin resources; seeks to render the building self-sufficient in terms of energy consumption avoiding needless CO2 atmospheric emissions; adopts solutions to collect rainwater and recover grey water, since water is life.
STOP overbuilding, STOP the overuse of land, STOP the indiscriminate use of natural resources. The new architecture is recycling: the RECYCLED HOUSE!
