Degree of Freedom is an international civil and structural engineering practice with offices in Oslo, Valencia and Athens. We design bridges, buildings and special structures, in timber, steel, and concrete. We are architecture oriented and innovative.
DEGREE OF FREEDOM has work in two phases of the restoration works of for a historical single-family house in Godella, Valencia. The building was built in 1930, has three floors and a built-up area of 616 m2. The building structure consists of brick columns and mud-masonry walls, timber beams filled with ceramics for floor slabs and timber beams at the roof.
First, a study of structural pathologies was carried out, showing important deficiencies. Therefore, restoration project was done with the collaboration of the architect Fran Silvestre. DOF was in charge of the structural design of the reinforcement and new structures. The restoration principle was to maintain the historical façade and rebuilt the rest of the structure. To maintain the façade a steel structure and provisional bracing structure was design. The new structure consists on concrete walls and slabs and steel frame structure for the roof.
