LeapHome: a new way of living inspired by nature
16/06/2017 - LeapHome is born from the experience of LEAPfactory, gained through building in high altitude, in extreme and difficult environments. LeapHome is an unprecedented architectural solution that will revolutionize the construction industry: a house that is entirely realized through an industrial process, that is simple and innovative and adapts to your specific needs and desires, which is rethinking the dwelling paradigms.
 
AN INDUSTRIAL PROCESS
Like Meccano blocks, precise and combinable at will: this is the challenge launched by LeapHome. That is, applying industrial production methods to all the elements that compose a house. The various components, like for a car, are assembled on site totally dryly and do not need any further processing or adjustments. LeapHome’s great added value concerns its nature as an integrated product, which goes beyond the traditional distinction between bearing structures, casing, installations, finishes and furniture. Each detail lives in an integrated manner with the totality, to maintain absolute quality and aesthetic consistency. The house is born totally equipped with technological installations, fixed furnishings and accessories, ready to be inhabited and is delivered 'turnkey' to the client, with realisation times that are particularly quick, and is surprisingly easy to assemble.

'Living immersed in nature represents one of the most important choices to embrace a new style of life', say Stefano Testa and Luca Gentilcore, the founders of LEAPfactory srl. 'We like to think that we can combine the comforts of a modern home with the profound freedom and the pioneering spirit of a life in perfect harmony with the environment that surrounds us'.
 
FRAME, LeapHome’s first model, can be visited at Lissone, in Cleaf’s outdoor area. The house offers a residential program of medium size (130 mq), arranged on two floors: a double height living room which overlooks the gallery with a study area; a dining area with kitchen; two bedrooms and two bathrooms; a wide outdoor terrace of relevance. FRAME reproposes the 'oriented gaze” principle that distinguishes other known creations of LEAPfactory: a structure that is developed longitudinally and offers generous panoramic openings on opposite sides, with the characteristic hut section that connotes the home and its idea of domesticity.

The external walls of the house propose the abacus of the openings available for the FRAME model: in addition to the large sliding glass doors, the vertical ribbon window, the punctual window, the bay window (on back), the skylight on roof pitches. All these variants are useful to configure each new home in an optimum manner, adapting to the places, the climates, the taste and the desires of each inhabitant. FRAME is characterized by a support structure with a laminated timber frame (width 6,5m and modular length at 1,2m pitch). Pillars and beams are visible inside the house, give rhythm to the space and integrate a rich system of fixed furniture made to measure: wardrobes, chests of drawers, libraries, pantry. All finishes are coordinated and made with fine, resistant, ecological materials. The walls also adopt materials used for the production of high-quality furnishings. The technological installations provide a compact air-conditioning unit, with an electrical heat pump and mechanised air exchange with high-efficiency heat recovery. The electrical system is of the pre-wired type, with intelligent signal commands and domotic functions.

The FRAME model is engineered for the integration of different air conditioning systems, of solar energy production and for all automation and control systems, even remote, of the installed functions and the consumption. All the components of the installations are housed in totally accessible compartments: for easy maintenance and to allow the implementation of systems at any time without any destructive intervention. All the components of the casing of the building offer high thermal and acoustic insulation performances, obtained with the use of the latest high-efficiency composite materials and insulation. The strong energy efficiency that follows makes FRAME suitable also for off-grid configurations (in energetic autonomy).
 
LeapHome and Cleaf
Cleaf collection of surfaces is an open system in continual development. A multiplicity of finishes and decorative papers that offer an elegant ‘skin’ for the world of furnishings and interior design. The extensive customisation in the configuration LeapHome’s interiors, which is made possible by an innovative industrial process for the design and manufacture phases, represents the ideal ground for the application of the Cleaf surfaces. Cleaf has therefore decided to support the LeapHome project, whose design philosophy it fully shares, thus choosing to accommodate the first FRAME house model inside the courtyard of its Lissone headquarters.

Inside FRAME there are four Cleaf products, among which, in absolute preview, Piombo, a surface that joins the collection Hyper Materials, composed of original solutions, a synthesis of technique, materials, style and sustainability. Piombo, thanks to the use of innovative acrylic resins applied through the Electron Beam Curing process, is an opaque, anti-fingerprint surface, that is soft to the touch and with a low light reflectivity. Available both as a faced panel and as a laminate, it is suitable for vertical and horizontal use.

Piombo HM01 in the faced panel version is used for furnishings, containers and wings. Nadir FB14 in the faced panel version is used for the coating of the service nucleus and the kitchen block. Nadir FA68 in the faced panel version is used for the coating of the walls and ceilings. Nadir FB45 in the faced panel version is used for the coating of the bathrooms.
