Palazzo Dami – Piano Nobile in Florence, Italy Zeno Pucci+Architects

 
March 20th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Zeno Pucci+Architects

The house is located on the main floor of a historic building in Florence, redesigned in 1735 by the architects Giovacchino Fortini and Ferdinando Ruggieri for Giuliano Dami, favorite of the Grand Duke Giangastone dè Medici. The project of the Zeno Pucci + Architects studio had as main concept, that of revisiting in a contemporary key this historical dwelling, through the insertion of highly modern furnishing elements and a very minimalist style. The atmosphere can be perceived right from the entrance, where, due to the wall decorations, we are catapulted into a historical space well contrasted by the furnishings present. Here then is the perspective escape of the gallery frescoed by Niccolò Pintucci, which portrays ancient landscapes, shielded by architectural whims, partially covered by a wild vegetation. In the large hall, punctuated by a coffered ceiling of 1400 painted with geometric motifs, the furnishings give a modern style in contrast with the historicity of the room, as in the same dining room. In what was once the family chapel, a small study has now been created, but the atmosphere always brings a very sober and discreet modernity. Even the master bedroom follows the mood of the whole house, like the headboard of the stone bed covered in white leather, and the two modern chairs at the foot of the bed. Movements and atmospheres of a time that design the kitchen, where still the modern blends with the old, with the large sink in gray bardiglio that incorporates the color of contrasting decorations on the walls in pietra serena treated in bold ivory, the sideboard in corten iron and backlit opaque glass.

MAD Architects presents their research proposal Historical Future: Milan Reborn for the Scali Milano project, community-reactivation masterplan research headed by FS Sistemi Urbani (FS Urban Systems) and Comune di Milano (the Municipality of Milan) with the support of Regione Lombardia (Lombardy Region). MAD Architects, along with four other international architecture firms (Stefano Boeri Architetti, Mecanoo Architecten, MIRALLES TAGLIABUE EMBT, and Cino Zucchi Architetti), was invited to envision a series of Milan’s dilapidated railyards as productive social landscapes that establish a harmony between Milan’s citizenry, the larger metropolitan region, and the natural environment. MAD proposes that these railyards become interconnected micro-systems conforming to five spatial concepts: “City of Connections,” “City of Green,” “City of Living,” “City of Culture,” and “City of Resources.”

Blossom Owl in Kalamata, Greece by TZOKAS architects

Article source: TZOKAS architects 

The redesign of the space (previous name “Reload b/c”), which our architectural firm had undertaken in the past, so as, with the minimum changes and expenses, to achieve a brand new identity, was a great challenge for us.

Even though the management would remain the same, the main idea of operating the café would change to transform it into a coffee grinder’s with café services. This operation should transform the café, which initially had an industrial design, to a place more open to the customers, making them feel warm and cosy. At the same time, customers could witness the process of making different kinds of coffee! A great effort was placed on recycling the existing materials from the previous café, yet without living a trace of their past.
