HOME STUDIO FOR AN ARTIST in Abruzzo, Italy by Studio zero85

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Article source:  Studio zero85

The building, situated on the top of a hill, responds to a dual function: artist’s studio and home for the family. Observing the territory, with the presence of the houses of clay and their chromatic relationship with its surroundings, suggest the idea of using the slab in brick. The Tavelle (hollow tiles), once divided, were applied both on the facades that on the cover as a coating choosing the inner part of them, resulting in a unique solution of the use of this material. The formal purity takes the shape of barns and houses land extensively in the area. The interior space consists of a living unit on two levels of wood (including the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and the library), which divides in two the total volume (study and living). The openings guarantee (the client’s request) a horizontal light in the studio and at the same time frame of the views of particular landscape suggestion.

3 VAULTS in Turin, Italy by R3Architetti

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Article source: R3Architetti

We have been asked to reconfigure the interior of a three-room apartment of about sixty square meters in Turin to accommodate a new type of home who could also function as Airbnb. The new plan layout emphasizes the three vaults that crown the entire volume of the house: two of them frame the living area and one the bedroom and bathroom area. By cutting the septum that divided the two northern vaults, the living area takes a diagonal orientation that expands the perception of space. This axis scheme is further emphasized by the geometry of the sofa and by the wooden niche that outlines the study area and gives access to the bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen, made with reinforced concrete cast on site and oak doors, divides the dining room from an extra area used as utility and store room. The dialogue between different materials defines the dining area: concrete and wood for the kitchen, exposed concrete for the walls, zinc-coated steel pipes and wooden top for the table. The studio niche leads to the space held within the third vault where the bedroom and the bathroom are: this area is divided by a septum which maintains the space continuum at the ceiling level. On this third vault the original 1905 decoration has been brought back to the surface.

In our city there are places, buildings, views that bring to mind images and memories.

They are “presences” that tell a story, often not known, linked to the dynamics of urban development of a city.

This is the example of the water tower of Fossano (Italy).

A water tank which is an important landmark in the city skyline.

Water has always been an important privilege for a city.
