Rice for Architecture
21. April 2022, 17:53
Ricehouse was set up in 2016 by Tiziana Monterisi, architect, and Alessio Colombo, geologist, in order to follow their passion and ethics for promoting responsible change in society by means of their job. Ricehouse represents an example of circular economy, which aims to promote natural architecture by enhancing by-products of rice processing. The Company proposes new housing models as an alternative to the traditional ones, whose materials are from petrochemical origin. “Our architecture moves towards a cultural, technical and deeply committed transformation of territory and building: house is a living system”. Along with Tiziana’s experience using bio-based materials, it was clear the awareness that a critical problem for agricultural sector could represent an opportunity into the architectural world: less waste and new materials to face the high energy consumption in the construction sector. We offer building products and innovative solutions by using rice husk and rice by-products.
