La Closca de Can Torrella

The chosen system is a timber structure formed by 2 big arches, which lay on the floor at the 4 ends of the coverage. The resulting shape is a self standing, double curved shell, capable of distributing the weight demands to the ground.
The proposed shed is a textile sheet made of PVC, reinforced with fiber, patterned and sealed so it perfectly fits the wooden structure. It must be mentioned that the total weight of the shed is very low (compared to traditional construction), which must definitely be taken into account when knowing where the structure must rest, trying to minimize the reinforcement of the existing structure. After the loads study, and having apllied the security margins, we will assure the correct load transmission to the actual ground (now a parking).
