RESIDENCE QUADRIVIUM in Castelnuovo del Garda: the advantages of sound insulation of openings in the facade.
Noise in the domestic space can give rise to significant issues such as insomnia, nervous tension, migraines, lack of concentration and bad moods. What's more, everyone knows noise is the main factor in arguments between neighbours. The "Abitare Evoluto" building concept originates in a precise and meticulous analysis of all the construction details outlined in this section. Airborne noise is not transmitted, since the wall consists of two distinct 80 cm external walls in hollow brick, with an 8 cm layer of cement blocks between them. A fibreglass insulating layer 40 mm thick is inserted between the resulting two air spaces. Noise transmitted vertically through the walls of the building is alleviated by a polymer-based insulating layer 5 mm thick placed under the wall itself.
