De Cecco Headquarters in Pescara, Italy by Studio FUKSAS

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: Studio FUKSAS 

The De Cecco Headquarters are an architectural landmark rising above an area of considerable town development. Two “edifices” linked by staircases and lifts, stand distinctly separate one on top of the other. The elevations of the cube-shaped lower part feature floor-to-ceiling glazing which hollows and lightens the sense of volume.

Home Sweet Home in Fossò, Italy by 3ndy Studio

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: 3ndy Studio

An home is the place where you feel good every time you enter inside, a sort of shelter inside the town. Not too big and not too small. The way  you think about your life out of the work is your home. It Is the place for you and for your family, with all the utilities but in the same time simple and easy to maintain. And also the home has not to consume too much energy and it’s better if the energy comes from the sun. This home is made in part with ancient materials, that come from the grandparent’s old house,  as the wood and the bricks that recall to memory the roots of the family. New materials as Corian, are used in the furniture and the stairs. The atmosphere inside this country house is extremely warm and is due to the color of natural material used for the interior wall and for the floor.
