Observatory houses for Roccascalegna competition. Urban Planger
Design team: Nataly Nemkova for Urban Planger
Main idea of the project is a ribbon, that vines throng the landscape connecting the new and the old.
Our design is based on the complex techniques to analyze the site and environment. Performing GIS analysis with satellite image we differentiated types of vegetation according to its density and height. This helped us to understand the best location for observatory houses and Sky Lounge.
Using the elevation model of the site we also performed slope evaluation which is shown on the scheme above from red to green - from steep to low. We thought important to locate our trails on the gentle slope where this is possible to avoid construction works while building them. Our intention was make the whole complex maximum accessible for wheelchair users, elderly people, people with buggies and cyclists.
