MicroPark Museum in Sulmona, Italy by MOAB ARCHITETTURA

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Article source: MOAB ARCHITETTURA

The main purpose of the project is the promotion of the archaeological site of Largo Salvatore Tommasi, in the historical center of Sulmona. Rests of mosaic floors and walls decorated with polychromatic plaster were found on site and they most likely belonged to a large building of the Augustan age.

The discovery itself and then the enhancement of the ruins become an opportunity to reclaim urban area – with high potentials – considered at present only as “retro” or transfer path .

HIGHRISE OFFICE BUILDING by Rossetti Architects

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Article source: Rossetti Architects

Clear, effervescent + in-line with a risk-taking, entrepreneurial spirit was the client vision that inspired this eye-popping, yet sophisticated environment for the Rock Companies Executive Suite. ROSSETTI translated the “live, work, play” lifestyle into offices that are executive, yet don’t take themselves too seriously. This office interior ignited a downtown city’s resurgence, bringing life and energy into the once tired and gray city. The vibrant offices mimic the owner’s vision for the city; high-energy and elegant.  Dominate design inspirations include spaces that are clear, effervescent, and executed in eye-popping color and playful design elements.
