Among inspiring urban designs, the Gervasutti hut by Leapfactory stands out in today’s times. It is a building that is made from prefabricated materials and has alpine designed accommodation layouts. The entire building was built off the site and was transported to the site where it was assembled easily by a few steps and operations. Single function units characterize the modular building structure where the units were easily assembled against each other.
The elements were so designed to be flexible in function. The components are designed to survive harsh conditions at high altitudes. The structures are in the form of a composite sandwich like shell which can provide resistance to mechanical pressure as well as ensure thermal insulation, ensuring energy efficiency. The materials that are employed were chosen to survive the specific weather conditions in the targeted region. There was attention paid to the use of sustainable materials as well as maximizing safety and hygiene factors. The building is also geared to allow integrated use of different technological apparatus. The problems of energy autonomy are addressed as well as how to power all instruments that are installed. Monitoring and remote control features are also present in the Gervasutti hut by Leapfactory design.
