CT HOUSE in Bassano del Grappa, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

This renovation project has involved a detached house integrated in an urban context located in the outskirts of Bassano. It’s a house built on 3 levels with large windows overlooking the garden. The spaces were reorganized and elegant natural materials inspired by the years of construction of the house, were used throughout. The addition of unique pieces of design makes it more contemporary, while maintaining its original identity at the same time. A sole wooden flooring  levels out all the surfaces and the use of soft yet firm tones colours conveys the feeling of a warm atmosphere despite the wide spaces and the white of much of the finish.

Lamborghini Factory in Bologna, Italy by MA2

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Article source: MA2

The composition for both proposals are a series of torqued surfaces with composite component assemblies as it main feature. These assemblages are dynamic members of a formal complexity that resonate with the image of speed and the Lamborghini stealth body. Roundabout proposal one is focused on the curvatures of fluid dynamics expressed in solid form. Theses curvatures flow around the monument where the viewer can experience these torqued envelopes through its spaces that it creates.  Roundabout proposal two is conceptualized to resemble features in the current Lamborghini models. The features of interest are the elegance of the engine and vector geometric shelled surface. It combines these elements into a configuration of flight and shelter. In conclusion both operate as a nexus of stealth dynamics and matrix vertices for Lamborghini.

Kindergarten Valdaora di Sotto, South Tyrol in Italy by feld72

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: feld72 

Nestling within the village structure of Valdaora di Sotto in South Tyrol, the kindergarten building communicates the interplay between tradition, contemporary life and nature. The third kindergarten made by feld72 aligns itself within its tranquil background without being subordinate to it. Self-evident and uncontrived. Embedded sensuously in its location, the building responds to the dominant aura of the parish church with the cemetery chapel and the elementary school in the centre of Valdaora di Sotto. The timber building sits as though in an encasement within the massive surrounding wall, lending security.

Article source: Arch. Fabio Fantolino

An apartment in a building of the early ‘900, located in the Turin hills a few steps from the Gran Madre and from the Piazza Vittorio, has been deeply and carefully restored in 2015 by architect Fabio Fantolino. The international vintage mood is the fil rouge of the project, where elements from the 50s are combined with a conscious recovery of pre-existing structures. The project includes the total renovation of the apartment, the interior design and the design of the lights and custom furniture.

Dynamic Seismic Hotel in Italy by Margot Krasojevic

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: Margot Krasojevic

The hotel’s design focuses on zoned programmatic areas which separate and slide away from each other in the event of an earthquake. The areas constructed from a lightweight aluminium frame with pre-cast concrete and recycled plastic polymer panels make it easier to move them away from each other and move through the tremor for easier displacement.

Monolithic Apartment with Predominant Wood Elements in Castrovillari, Italy by Brain Factory – Architecture & Design

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

Article source: Brain Factory – Architecture & Design 

The Monolithic House is an apartment located in Castrovillari (CS), in the southern Italy, so defined because the creative concept behind the project plays with the volumetric subtractions of a monolithic block. The majestic views of the Pollino massif mountains, clearly visible from the luminous windows of the apartment, lead to the choice of the stone as conceptual raw material. In addition to stone, predominant natural material is the wood that warms the environment from the entrance, place where it is immediately enveloped in a surreal atmosphere: a rain of Swarovski crystals adorned the walls, dotted of sparkles. Constructive tension element of interior design around which takes place the open space is the monolithic block, ie the stone wall’s partition between kitchen and living room, characterized by a window which performs the dual function of table or support plane.

Architecture of the time in Faggeto Lario, Italy by Ceresa Architetto

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Article source: Ceresa Architetto

The ring out of this valley is not changed, it’s the same silent which someone heard long ago, long before your passing.

Nothing ever happens here. But if you have patience when you stopping, you can understand how the atmosphere you breathe in this place is ancient, it’s chimes in ethereal way. It’s the architecture who is talking about this.

You can see, towards valley, the bell tower and the historic tower and between them the castle walls. The space between them has something pleasantly melancholy.

Ruta 40 Tour Operator in Turin, Italy by IDEEA Interior Design & Architecture

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Article source: IDEEA Interior Design & Architecture

Ruta 40 is a workspace characterised by a strong home-like feeling. The design meets the need for a space for informal interaction as well as a welcoming place to work. The office was created in a light-filled mansard, previously used as a residential flat. Every space has its own precise function. The living room became a comfortable lounge, the kitchen, which is hidden in the lounge, can host up to two work stations, the bathroom is like a tiny spa, with a bench for relaxing and enjoying the view laid out on the walls, and the two bedrooms were transformed into warm, welcoming offices.
