A Garden With Four Seasons in Turin, Italy by Carlo Ratti Associati

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

Article source: Carlo Ratti Associati

International design and innovation office Carlo Ratti Associati, together with property developer Citylife, has unveiled the “Garden of the Four Seasons”, an enclosed garden in Milan where all four seasons coexist with each other concurrently throughout the year. Based on a concept by Dr. Barbara Römer, founder of the creative consultancy Studio Römer, the project leverages a new system for high-precision climate control, by which incoming solar energy is partially collected through photovoltaics and partially redistributed among the different seasonal areas, with zero net energy consumption. The project aims at reclaiming a closer relationship between urban dwellers and nature’s cycles. It was commissioned by Citylife, a new neighborhood under development in the north-west of Milan based on a master plan by Zaha Hadid, Daniel Liebeskind and Arata Isozaki.

Opposite the building, there is the rhythmic series of brick blocks of the Caproni factory, with their shed roof and industrial archaeology charm: the M89 Hotel – the new four-star destination at number 89 of via Mecenate– faces the factory halls that one hundred years ago hosted one of the leading aviation companies and which are now home to Gucci, after a meticulous renovation and expansion project by Piuarch.

Resort & Winery BORGO BACCILE in Crecchio, Italy by Rocco Valentini

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Rocco Valentini

Restoration and reuse of a tiny rural hamlet immersed in the Abruzzo countryside, in an advanced state of degradation, to transform it into a receptive structure, able to convey to the guests the emotions and sensations of the pre-industrial campaign life. Buildings have been made functional with the addition of contemporary structures. The small Borgo Baccile, dating from a few houses dating back to the mid-‘800, is located just a short distance from the historic center of Crecchio. The buildings, following the post-war social transformations, had been abandoned. Some of them, such as House B, had structural and empty breakdowns due to collapse. The design choice was to leave the original mummified structures, making them anti-seismic with steel injections and steel rims, and add functional elements with contemporary shapes, materials and colors in harmony with the sandstone of existing buildings.

Hotel Ballguthof in Lana, Italy by Bergmeisterwolf

Friday, August 18th, 2017

Article source: Bergmeisterwolf

Architecture as a symbol. a protruding wing in the entrance shows the way, a sweeping buckled roof of black concrete leads to the reception area on the inside, to the lounge, bar, and out to the landscape. the ceiling grid mirrors the new implants. an open floor plan with small boxes or dens provides an intimate atmosphere. in the landscape, a well-lit stairway serves as the link between the outdoor and indoor pools. the bronze monolith seemingly grows out of the ground, out of its depths, and at night becomes a light installation.

Unità residenziale al servizio dell’ albergo diffuso di Paluzza in Italy by ceschia e mentil architetti associati

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Article source: ceschia e mentil architetti associati

On a small piece of foundation land where once stood a rural building a small residential unit was built, part of a larger project by the name of “Albergo Diffuso” in the municipality of Paluzza. The project, promoted by the Tourism Department of the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia and co-financed by EU funds, aims to promote the re-use and the recovery of a building heritage which is left to deteriorate with the objective of promoting a new sustainable form of tourism capable, at the same time, of revitalizing highly depopulated areas. The ambition is to increase the welcoming capacity for tourists not thought big hotel infrastructures but thanks to small units widespread on the territory. The desired outcome is a touristic offer not only at a low-cost hospitality but also the possibility, offered to guests, of choosing an alternative holiday/break solution to the mainstream offer.Inside, the house offers a domestic geography which is intimately linked to the morphology of the site. A black space with a small window becomes the place for cooking and eating, the big frameless glass window is the place for conversation, while a low window allowing the continuation of the outside landscape sculpts a small wooden intimate alcove for the night.
