Palazzo Dami – Piano Nobile in Florence, Italy Zeno Pucci+Architects

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Article source: Zeno Pucci+Architects

The house is located on the main floor of a historic building in Florence, redesigned in 1735 by the architects Giovacchino Fortini and Ferdinando Ruggieri for Giuliano Dami, favorite of the Grand Duke Giangastone dè Medici. The project of the Zeno Pucci + Architects studio had as main concept, that of revisiting in a contemporary key this historical dwelling, through the insertion of highly modern furnishing elements and a very minimalist style. The atmosphere can be perceived right from the entrance, where, due to the wall decorations, we are catapulted into a historical space well contrasted by the furnishings present. Here then is the perspective escape of the gallery frescoed by Niccolò Pintucci, which portrays ancient landscapes, shielded by architectural whims, partially covered by a wild vegetation. In the large hall, punctuated by a coffered ceiling of 1400 painted with geometric motifs, the furnishings give a modern style in contrast with the historicity of the room, as in the same dining room. In what was once the family chapel, a small study has now been created, but the atmosphere always brings a very sober and discreet modernity. Even the master bedroom follows the mood of the whole house, like the headboard of the stone bed covered in white leather, and the two modern chairs at the foot of the bed. Movements and atmospheres of a time that design the kitchen, where still the modern blends with the old, with the large sink in gray bardiglio that incorporates the color of contrasting decorations on the walls in pietra serena treated in bold ivory, the sideboard in corten iron and backlit opaque glass.

Winning competition entry for the redevelopment of an urban area, including the transformation of an existing bus depot to integrate a mixture of uses including office, retail space and residential units.

This project is part of the Municipality of Rome’s initiative to redevelop a number of transport depots within the city in conjunction with local public transport authority ATAC. It involves the regeneration of a neighborhood with a weak identity but with good growth potential due to its location at the edge of the city centre. Labics’ aim therefore was to create a new centre for the local community, but also to increase its profile as a place of transition with privileged access to the city centre.

Infrastructure – Structure – Architecture in Venice, Italy by SUMMARY studio

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Article source: SUMMARY studio

The global housing deficit can be measured in the scale of billions. Two opposite approaches can be seen tackling this issue of such magnitude and scale: an inefficient approach and an efficient approach. An inefficient construction system is labor intensive, and this means that, from a political point of view, using as large a work force as possible will keep unemployment rates low, which is just as important as reducing the housing shortage. At the same time, there will be a need for approaches using very efficient prefabricated constructions able to respond quickly and accountably in terms of technical quality to an ever increasing housing demand.
