Navarra House: Ductal® Roof


In the centre of Var, France architect Rudy Ricciotti designed a private gallery for art lover Enrico Navarra. The villa's roof, designed by engineering firm LR Ingénierie, is comprised of seventeen 9.25 m x 2.35 m panels, each weighing approximately 3 tonnes, with a 7.80 m overhang; a feat that was easily achieved thanks to the roofing material: Ductal® with metallic fibres.


Characteristics of the project

  • Roof with a 7.8 m overhang
  • Ductal® is used 100% structurally for flexion in the ribbing
  • The panels rest on two strip footings
