Porta Nuova Building Milano, Italy by piuarch

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Article source: piuarch

Like some sort of sinuous, white wave, the Porta Nuova Building fits in with the master plan for the urban redevelopment of the old railway station in Porta Nuova, Milan, situat­ed between Corso Como, Garibaldi Station, the Isola neighbourhood and Piazza della Re­pubblica. This huge structure extends over a distance of 140 metres to create a structure covering a total of 16,500 m² designed for holding offices and shops. This powerful and, at the same time, lightweight, white coloured, glazed building serves a fundamental “urban purpose”: it hinges together the existing city and the latest dynamics triggered off by the entire Porta Nuova project, falling in line with the heights of the old buildings and embrac­ing the square that is set higher level than the surrounding roads.

082 Showroom Interrato in Lucca, Italy by MIDE architetti

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: MIDE architetti 

The project for the new Gianni Chiarini’ s showroom in Milan consists in a partially hypogeum exhibition space, located underneath an historical building in the heart of the city.

The access has been re-set up through a recessed patio in the courtyard pavement, which hosts the new stairway that leads to the showroom below. This morphological operation modifies the ground floor of the external area, emphasising the entrance and inviting the visitor to descend. The resulting basement patio has therefore transformed into a small garden, a formal filter between the public space and the more intimate and welcoming internal showroom.

Haus S in Bolzano, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten 

five vacation apartments, connected by the base (garage), are twisted around a shared courtyard. house s aims to be one with the site, the landscape, and the village. following the houses of the neighborhood, the traditional materials of stone and wood are used: natural stone for the base and quartered logs for the façade. the house, placed on an incline, follows local topography only breaking at edges in the terrain. the house outgrows and yet grows into the landscape at the same time – a twist. the house’s position along a street results in a sort of yard in the back part with a vista towards a clearing – a natural recreation area. the upper part of the building, made of wood, lies on the stone base. its height and movement complies with the surrounding rooftops. however, it allows for free vistas between the rooftops of the neighboring houses, revealing wide-open views of the landscape. the result is a sort of movement, a dynamic that includes the neighboring houses without them being the main focus.

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: Rena Sakellaridou & Morpho Papanikolaou, SPARCH

We recycle ideas, architectural concepts, structures, buildings, materials. We experiment with hybrids that step out from what exists and are transformed through new programs. How do you transform the former paper factory in Marzabotto into a place for culture, development and innovation? How do you recycle this old industrial plant into new life and uses? How do you give the Green Academy strong presence?

In stone, fire department margreid in South Tyrol, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

A stone wall is the stage backdrop for the new fire department in margreid, along the wine road. three large caverns in a mountain, connected by a crossing tunnel, serve as the inner rooms of the station. two caverns are used for trucks and one for administrative work. a meter from the mountain, a concrete wall, kinked and dyed black, mirrors the angle of the mountain wall. the three caverns dock on to the steel concrete wall that functions both as fall protection and as an architectural element of the fire department. the material chosen was concrete: stable, strong, and mighty; the dark color was achieved by adding beech coal dust, making the concrete look like burnt wood.

Rooftops – Twin House H in Bozen, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

The gabled roof, the rooftop and the roofing of the windows were the central topics of the design. the natural and architectural surroundings were the inspiration for the rooftop. the mountain tops – the backdrop of the house – and the traditional farmsteads that characterize the area are abstractly cited and interpreted in a new way in the architecture. a parallel floor plan allowed for two houses under one roof. the two different apartments, planned for two sisters, are designed to let nature and the surroundings in. all of the windows were placed according to the views they offer, and the gardens are mirrored in the loggia on the ground floor as well as on the rooftop terrace, nestled between the rooftops. any open spaces are protected from the strong winds distinctive for this area. the loggias are located deep in the buildings, and the rooftop terrace is protected by an elongated piece of façade. the building interacts with its surroundings; the old stone wall is incorporated in the design. the two materials – cinderblock and brownish-black wooden slats – interact, illustrating the duality found on the inside.

Article source: Piuarch

An iconic urban landmark, but also a sustainable structure for an evolving shopping experience: the new CENTRO*Arezzo Coop.fi frees itself from the conceptual dictates of the traditional shopping mall and acts as a social and recreation pole that is perfectly integrated with the city. Opened in 1988, the complex has undergone a significant aesthetic and functional redevelopment that has completely changed its identity and its relationship with the surrounding environment.
