he cemetery renovation and extension project resolves the problem of lack of intimacy during the procession: the funeral cortege used to pass through the provincial road, losing their moment of recollection due to the presence of the local traffic.
The new entrance is located on the southern side, in Via Cimitero (cemetery road), at the end of a tree-lined and calm boulevard. This arrangement makes the space fit the emotional status of the processions gathered for the final farewell.
Simplicity and ceremony. A white wall acts as a backdrop, with a canopy to protect the priest conducting the religious service.
The same space is also designed to be used for private prayers and meditation, as can be inferred by the presence of four benches shaded by four trees.

The project deal with the renovation of an apartment in a Ligurian coastal town. The request of the client was to reorganize the 35 square meters in order to organize the rooms by dividing the living area from the sleeping area. The nautical culture (that is a strong peculiarity of this region) was fundamental for the development of the project.

A fun, dynamic and elegant work space: these were the Client’s requests for his new accounting firm.
Architectural concept comes from the idea to fill the entire space with numbers, because those are calculation’s basis, the central tool of the study’s work.
The interior space, walls, pillars and ceilings are conceptually transformed into a “trees forest” where the “fruits” are the numbers, packaging carton tubes represent the “Cuisenaire rods”, used by children at school to learn math.

The development of the architectural project has determined the construction of a building that combines a unitary image with an articulated arrangement, determined by external factors (distances, constraints). The trend of the perimeter walls adapts to external constraints, the smallness of the land does not allow to define geometrically determined trends. Starting from the given perimeter, through a series of minor corrections, orientation corrections and consolidation of rotations, a plant has been determined that is repeated on the first floor, except for small differences. The articulated plant does not have the possibility to determine the course of the ridge on geometric bases. It is in terms of volume that there have been various trends in the ridge and the pitches, in order to create an elegantly articulated volume, without poignant elements.
