Casa TEACCH aims to become an iconic element through an innovative sustainable construction solution. The TEACCH method, which ended up giving its name to the project itself, is based on the adaptation and creation of environments with particular characteristics, allowing the development of social and communication skills in people with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This architectural object started from a reinterpretation of the image of a traditional barn, through the visible use of wood and a gable roof, inserted in a rural environment and with a strong presence of the natural surroundings.
