USB Houses in Milano, Italy by Francesco Fiotti

 
April 22nd, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Francesco Fiotti

The project relates to the site simultaneously on three levels: the current context – the P.I.I. “Cascina Merlata” – the potential development area.

Our proposal creates a connection between the ‘fast system’ of via Gallarate and the ‘slow system’ of the park, an idea of continuous and fluid urban space that may extend far beyond the simple boundary of the area. The buildings are arranged parallel to the director of Cascina Merlata, not only to respect its visual scope, but also to ensure the higher permeability to those coming from via Gallarate. The residential units are separated from the ground, bridge building resting on the access units to private residences. The idea is to return the soil to the ‘pawn’.

  • Architect: Francesco Fiotti
  • Name of Project: USB Houses
  • Location: Milano, Italy
  • Architecture: Carmela Scala collaboration with Antonio De Risi, Vincenzo Toscano and Luigia Aliperti
  • Houses area: 19000 mq
  • Type of project: Competition
  • Year: 2010

The project proposes two levels in the public-private relations: while the park level, that receives open spaces and neighborhood facilities, represents the connection on an urban scale, the middle level of the buildings, that houses the services to the residence, can realize the connection of otherwise separate residential blocks.
