Torre Del Borgo in Villa d’Adda, Italy by CN10architetti

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

Article source: CN10architetti

Torre del Borgo is one of the most famous fortified buildings in the history of Bergamo. The powerful and accurate quality of the medieval walls, the integrity of the fortified structure, the central position in the village, give to this artifact the most complete sense of monument. The restoration project has dealt with different aspects that conditioned the conservation, the use and the valorisation of the building: the structural instability of the walls and floors, the lack of an adequate system of connection between plans, the total absence of plant networks, degradation and precariousness of internal and external stone facings, lack of windows and adequate interior finishes, on floors and walls. The entire work has developed pursuing a dual purpose, first identifying solutions to the problems of degradation, second offering an architectonic and functional reinterpretation of the building. The project is designed to be made into two functional lots of action: with the completion of Lot 1, are now fully accessible the four halls of the central tower and the spaces of the new building C intended to services and distribution. An important intervention is certainly the inclusion of the new system of ramps and walkways, made entirely with an iron structure, which is articulated between the spaces of the central tower and the new building, connecting the various levels of the complex. Lot 2 will include the redevelopment of public space in Piazza del Borgo with the creation of a large area covered and protected to the road, in direct continuity with the new pavement of the square. With the completion of the restoration project, Torre del Borgo will be able to accomodate the Public Library of Villa d’Adda.

Sensing The Waves in Prato, Italy by NIO Architecten

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

Article source: NIO Architecten

The “Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci” was opened in 1988 and donated to the city of Prato by Enrico Pecci, in memory of his son who died at an early age. The museum is situated on the periphery of Prato, near the exit of the A11 highway, a strategic spot where, from the first floor, you can see the skyline of Florence, the city where tourism and ancient culture reign. On this spot however, two opposites dominate: (textile) industry and modern art. The art centre is one of the few museums in Italy that is devoted to modern art and furthermore, that possesses a superb collection which, for lack of exhibition space, is stored in various depots. To be able to display the invisible works of art it was decided to double the exhibition space and to solve two important problems with the new construction.

Transformation In Pronda Road Civic 8 in Turin, Italy by G.G. RAINERI

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Article source: G.G. RAINERI

The measure in question provided for the restructuring and change of use of an industrial building destination located at the center of a quadrilateral of residential buildings. The shed in which we intervened, was placed exactly in the middle of a block of the west area of ​​Turin, near the border with the town of Grugliasco (block between Via De Santis, Pronda road, via Cimone and via Postumia). This is a city area developed after the Second World War, and still partially in the developing; in fact, some of the block buildings have recently been constructued. The intervention  involved the reshaping of the existing building in order to make it habitable. Its location is ideal, since being on the block center of gravity has a right distance from the buildings to have no annoying visual interference; moreover the intervention took place in accordance with the neighbor (the road Pronda 8), which was planning to demolish the existing buildings low to build a new building on front street, leaving the right of way (existing) to enter the lot in object. The existing building has been, so, surrounded by green gardens, partly to other condos in part derived uncovering part of the building itself. The GFA, originally located on the ground floor of the building, was distributed between the new mezzanine and the remaining ground floor. The height of the cover is not changed, the outer walls were maintained in part as boundary walls in part as the walls of the new residence. The most difficult part of the design was to give the proportions of residential building to a building that was built to house production activities. The main elevations are divided by dormers and recesses that mark the number of homes fitted inside. Moreover, the tall, narrow windows (partially obscured by fixed shading) try to give new proportions to the main prospect. The inputs to housing are designed as common compasses. All shutters and entrances are made of silver-colored metal profiles, the shell is finished with “ISOCOPPO” Alubel light gray, and the facades are painted in colored earthenware (red mattonaceo).

The via Domodossola 25 condominium is located on a small urban lot, between two existing buildings. The city in which is placed the project, is a semi-suburban area that was mainly developed in the period between the two world wars; the buildings that characterize most of this part of city are mostly in the “novecento” style or Art Nouveau style (the Santorre school Santarosa, the faculty of physical education, the neighborhood between Racconigi road and Peschiera road).
