Equilibrium is a state in which opposing forces or influences are balanced. A state of physical balance; A calm state of mind; in chemistry: A state in which a process and its reverse are occurring at equal rates so that no overall change is taking place; in economics: a situation in which supply and demand are matched. Equilibrium is that of the ‘house of cards’, of the tightrope walker, of the proportion of a classical column or of a statue, of the sailing boat travelling not upwind or lee.

The 19th century building rests on a hill in Crucoli, a small Italian hilltown above the Ionic Sea. The old quarry stone house is squeezed into the organic urban structure and sits right on the steep edge of the hill. This specific situation provides the house with a terrific view into the Sila mountains and defines the spatial layout. So technical improvements went together with the reorganzation of rooms.

The hotel is located at an intersection of the city, an intersection of interior and exterior, tradition and modernism. the features and characteristics of the city were incorporated into the design. the idea was to segment a compact structure floor by floor in order to let enough light in. courtyards of light become an element that is played with. the floors were shifted horizontally, so as to achieve an open and yet compact structure. space is split up into drawers; mirroring the old town’s vertical sectors, here horizontally. the façade is unbroken – solely two windows to the city offer a glimpse of the space on the interior, which is projected outwards, generating public space. the protrusions appear to be oriels, eversions of the façade. light comes in through the courtyards, halls, rooms, and open spaces; well-lit intimacy.

Thanks to the possibility to work on the reuse of an old farm, we could reflect about the theme of Mediterranean House.
The old farm was different from the typically character of Puglia’s farm. A principal building in liberty style and many different others, such as garage, barns and storage, composes the farm. The principal villa has just one floor and her façade is a rectangle organised on a vertical axis, so to be perfect symmetrical. To underline decorative parts like windows or the columns of portico, it was used stone. The villa and all the other buildings are organised around small squares.

Birraria Giori is located in the centre of Ferrara at the feet of the Este Castle. Its prime location meant that it was very important to take into consideration the historical surroundings. The design was based on the principle objective of restoring the front of the bar which is part of series of arches facing the town hall, know as the “covered way”, part of the Vice-Legato palace dating back to 1877. The primary aim of the project was to “clean up” the original structure or design, stripping off the numerous additions and modifications from over the years to reveal the original form and materiality of the arch, and to provide continuation with the rest of the walkway. The gazebo remains intact, and the windows and a new second ceiling are designed around a motif that reflects the famous lantern which burns at the foot of the Este Castle. The interiors are characterised by the use of wood and stone, the shades of the plaster and the tones of the interior reflect the the equilibrium between the old and the modern. The triangular facets of the new bench seating and also the ceiling, decorated with golden flashes, are based on the rustication of the Palazzo dei Diamanti, the most important historical building of Ferrara.
