The new beverage market is located along the busy north ring in the industrial area of Brunico. The new building is designed as a beverage wholesale shop and is located directly adjacent to the existing headquarters and warehouse of the company Harpf.
The new beverage market is designed as a wood construction for several reasons: the new beverage market was built on some existing underground storage, so the lightweight applied had to be appropriated.

Casa SN is an attic built thanks to the intervention of a total renovation of 1940’s villa in the first hills closed to the center of Bologna – Italy.
The light passes through the many windows both from the walls and the roof and it’s reflected on the white surfaces of furniture and finishes, expanding the space. The bleached wooden floor, the roof panel covered with light gray and ocher veils and the white walls create a box that acts as a passepartout where both custom-made furniture and industrial furnishings are emphasized. The heart of the house is a large open space where the living area and the kitchen, overlooking the dining area, are located. The kitchen, as well as all ad hoc furnishings, has been conceived as a functional and plastic block that adapts to the context. Every fixed furniture – in white opaque – has been crafted artisanally by the carpenter on a specific project made by the architect, going to be embedded in architectural volumes, supporting the slopes of the roof.

For this building, Nicolli designed and installed the glass shell with purposely designed metal sun breakers inspired by the laser technology of the company. The double function of screening and porch of the sun breakers is achieved with only three types of beams (in aluminium) and one type of tilted risers (in steel), both with simple geometric shapes. The whole sun breaker system was conceived for maximum protection from sun rays in all seasons.

The project provides for a new set-up of the “Sala delle Capriate” in the “Palazzo della Ragione” of Upper Bergamo. The building dates back to the XII century and represents the physical and functional center of the historic city. It is the core of a system of open public spaces and it directly relates to them on different sides. Once the building stopped to host the municipality, the upper room changed a series of different functions. Today its walls are covered with a significant review of art pieces collected over time from different buildings of the city.

CW apartment is located in an area on the south part of Trento, a green and rural cameo nestled inside the urban pattern. The flat is set in a new row house surrounded by fields mostly of which are apple orchards. Nearby a farm house, from the end of the nineteenth century, together with some one storey single family houses, recently built, marks out a low population density area. The furnishing project concerns both the day area and the night one, set on the same level: the ground floor. The family, which consists of three members, expressed to the designers the double need to stay with family, cooking or relaxing, and to share convivial moments with many friends during the weekend; the dining table and the kitchen are situated on the best windowed side of the apartment: the one towards the garden. The custom made furniture of the day area creates an efficient and versatile space, flexible to the different living needs; the fireplace, visible from all of the day area, designs an intimate space, relaxing and cozy.

The company of the Dr. Schär AG is located in the southern part of the commercial area of Burgstall. Because of the steady growth of the company also the space requirement increases and therefore the existing administration block has been extended. Due to the limited base area the building was conceived on three floors. The characteristic of the design of the new part of the building is the sophisticated, restrained and linear architecture. The glass facades create a new light and clear look of the building and also of the whole company. The sun protection is made of slanting glass falkes, it is aimed at a kind of double façade.
The visible Attica panels of the ceiling are covered with white tiles, the flat roofs are designed as green roofs.

A dynamic and lively sign able to express the meaning of a young, curious brand, is the new logo designed by Migliore+Servetto Architects for dmail. The circle is the generating element that defines the soft borders of the single letters, while two dots, placed over the beam of the “i”, mark its uniqueness. From a chromatic point of view black and white are combined with a uniform bright yellow, a symbol of light and energy.
