Abstract

The study deals with the issue of the construction of residential buildings through industrialized construction procedures with mass production of the component elements. This is a line of research that in recent years has renewed the interest in prefabricated construction mainly to cope with the need to update ways to build and use materials. The goal is to make, prefabricated and reversible building structures, eco-sustainable, too. These are real “space cells” of the “stackable” box type, capable of guaranteeing a flexible system aggregation, both horizontally and vertically, with the possibility of providing for the integration of further cells or the possible disassembly. The living modules have been inspired by the natural shapes of the honeycomb, which easily allows to ensure the serial repetition of a basic cell with a hexagonal section just like it happens in modular structures capable of forming discretized systems. The hexagonal-shaped modules save building material compared to the built volume; furthermore, they find an excellent predisposition to aggregation as the shape itself allows to reduce the gaps between the parts. In addition, the honeycomb structures have a high resistance due to the shape. The system was therefore conceived with stackable box-like space cells, hexagonal in shape to be made with industrialized processes of mass-produced components and structured in such a way as to ensure the aggregation of several homes. The proposed housing system is aimed at guaranteeing the reduction of the construction times of the work, to facilitate its realization and at the same time to mitigate the environmental impacts and the consumption of non-renewable energy. The objective is the process innovation that refers to new design approaches and renewed programming methods of the construction phases, necessary for the implementation of circular life cycles. In this perspective the management, both of the production, transport, construction, use of materials phases, and the decommissioning and reuse / recycling of residential cells ones , plays a central role.
