Tosetto, Weigmann and Associates in Turin, Italy by MARC

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Article source: MARC

MARC is commissioned to transform an elegant mansion from the beginning of the 20th century into an efficient contemporary office building. To do that it needs to perform radical and pragmatic interventions, optimizing the use of space. At the same time, it is necessary to respect the existing rooms and preserve their charm, but without being intimidated by their cold classicism. The project looks for discretion and neutrality while inserting all the many necessary new elements. Like the new staircase in perforated metal -the trigger of the typological change- that connects seven different levels illuminating them with a big skylight.

Domino in Turin, Italy by MARC

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: MARC

A big web-marketing agency moves into a conventional four-story building out of the city center. It promotes a contest among design offices, asking an architecture able to represent and strengthen the identity of its immaterial work, without relying on predictable cyberpunk or – worse – high-tech languages. MARC wins of the contest with this answer: the needed architecture is… restoration. The necessary immateriality is achieved literally, subtracting material from all the thick layers that had hidden what gradually reveals to be a decent building from the beginning of the 20th century.
