Sauris residential building type. Analysis of typologic and constructive characters for a coherent rehabilitation intervention



This research is focused on alpine building heritage in Sauris, a settlement in Carnia. Its residential building type is characterized by almost homogeneous spatial distribution and construction techniques, historically developed due to geographical isolation of this German speaking area and to availability of natural resource as wood, stone, soil and road-metal. To meet requirements for resettlement and Alpine tourism services, a methodology for rehabilitation is applied to Sauris building type. The proposed actions are compatible with original architectural characters and let a performance improvement in structural safety and energy consumption control.
