Urban densification and preservation of soil are a much discussed topics on which there is still little detailed research. In Switzerland these concepts are also acknowledged by visions and regulations at the federal level together with the importance of increasing energy supply by renewable energy sources and reducing the energy demand in-primis of existing building.

Starting from the analysis of a real case study identified in the city of Lugano Paradiso, which currently undergoes a deep transformation, the project aims first at analyzing the reason of this densification and to investigate the impact of these measures on existing buildings (with historical value).

The process went through a careful analysis of the important parameters affecting both the preservation and the energy demand of historical buildings in order to investigate the impact of different urban densification scenarios, also using simulation tools, on the behavior of these delicate and high value buildings.
