During the January of 2007, the construction works of a secondary pipe of the water distribution mains in Segarra-Garrigues system, caused an unexpected appearance of archaeological ruins from an ancient construction for 4.800 years in Seró (Artesa de Segre, Lleida). The most important point of this discovery was the megalithic nature of sandstone slabs and specially the accuracy of geometrical decoration sculpted. Stones with soft relief that, at the same time, were parts of ancient statues reused from a previous sculptural monument.

The project created 4 lodging rooms in a farm building in Alsace. A new wood construction was added as a natural and fluid extension of the old farm, not only renovating it but mostly honoring it by the use of its history and details. There by, niches were built in the walls and double doors were chosen over the regular ones, so that a special interaction between the bathroom and the room could be created. The room set is illuminated by Velux windows, drilling in an almost artificial way the old building envelop.

The Center for Advanced Mobility is a ground breaking symbiosis between nature and technology, functionality and dynamic form, as it combines high-performance laboratories with the urban environment. Wind studies were used to develop the dynamic space of the building which provides an optimal wind flow for the Aachen inner city and a maximization of ventilation for the building.

Inspired by the super fast boat hulls, the building’s volume expresses dynamism and innovation of a group at the forefront of research, in strict compliance with the energy class A.
The project for the headquarters of AB Medica, an italian farmaceutical company, is developed and designed by architect Giuseppe Tortato. An appealing combination that reveals a landmark building with functional and symbolic aspects requested by the client and the will of demarcation and qualification of a suburban context flanked by the highway Milano-Varese.

This private training center has 2 capsule-hotel and 3 tatami-style buildings. They are positioned with various angles of axis and all the rooms have a view of the Tokyo Bay, each one becoming a space like a ship’s cabin. The client requested guest units that had the possibility of future relocation or addition. While clearing these requirements and in order to ensure the necessary dimension for the bedroom spaces with economy, we utilized a wooden structural frame on a standard freight-truck of adequate dimensions.

A volume created by the urban needs arising from the emergence of a new promenade, the change in section of the road. In a temporary space somewhere between what was and what is wanted. With all this, the building appears as an urban element at city level, responding to more than just the particular needs of the condominium complex.

Eden Bio was a study of the densification of a typical suburban block on the east side of Paris.
Three ideas guided the project.
The first idea was to respect the surroundings and its history \”à la Doisneau\”. There were pre-existing buildings, full of life and devoid of pretension, some low, others tall. Long and narrow alleyways that are remnant of the area’s agricultural history interrupt the street alignment and spatially define the plot, while vegetation-filled corridors lead the eye into the sun-filled core of the block.
