In the tourism industry everything has to be fast and cheap, because of that a lot of companies build not environmentally friendly as they think it is too expensive for them. Another fact is that there were no companies offering ecological buildings for an acceptable price in Italy.

PROJECT

The firm Domus Natura designed and implemented a bioclimatic and accessible mobile living module for touristic resorts. The aim of this project is not only in providing a module for the accessible tourism but also proposing a wider project intended to make accessible the whole touristic environment where the module will be placed. The houses match the essential characteristics of accessibility and aesthetic with the furniture and interior accessories, and it is adapted to all users without aesthetic discriminations.

CURRENT SITUATION & OUTLOOK

The Modular Village, because of its flexibility, lends itself to be used in the construction of reception, sales offices, exhibition halls, kiosks, bars, garages, sports venues, and especially as mobile homes for tourist accommodations.
