The new ERP residences in Massa represent an architectural effort to heal and reactivate an urban area: the operation focuses on the ecosystem of the river Frigido to develop a concept and composition program. The design reinterprets the multitude of naturalistic and anthropic marks of the landscape, synthesizing them in a sustainable and ecological solution. The integrated design of the residential units has determined a setting where pathways, nature and geometry are related. The new vision for the urban micro-riverscape reverses the concept of limit into that of filter. The residences are all designed to blend harmoniously in the landscape and seek continuity between old and new. The design of the facades reveals the layout of the plant system, that finds its energetic core in the staircases units. The careful study of environmental parameters, the reduction of energy consumption and the employment of solar energy have determined this design to be certified CasaClima Class A.
