Thanks to this intervention the Municipality of Frasco provided a temporary housing to families that, living in high-risk areas, need leaving their homes in case of avalanche alarm. The building has 12 rooms with private bathroom and can also be used for tourism mantaining a function.  The roof becomes a solar surface hosting an integrated PV system composed by flexible membranes supporting a thin film laminate onto the top.
