“Steel House“ is a custom-made space designed to satisfy the client’s dreams: it’s a luxurious villa set in the venetian countryside, that combine together wellness, aesthetic and functionality. The aesthetic aspect well dialogues with the environment, drawing light shapes and bright spaces relating with the outdoor. The building has only one level which faces the garden and the swimming pool. The large windows let light and air come into the building and let people live in continuity both internal and external places during summertime. The porch holds an external living room with a fireplace, for barbeque and party moments.

The BL single family house is located in the northern part of the municipality of Pergine, on a mainly flat ground. From the area one can enjoy a beautiful view of the castle and the parish church of Pergine, of the Brenta chain and other low mountains, the amount of sun is ideal all year round, allowed, as it is, by the mountain silhouette and the surrounding buildings.

The project for a Japanese restaurant in Rome is inspired by the walkways in the forest bordered by the succession of black and glossy orange-red wooden portals, which lead to the temples of Fushimi Inari in Kyoto, of which reproduces colors and suggestions. “One of the most beautiful things in the world that I could not bring to mind the time when an opportunity was given to remake the interiors of my favorite Japanese restaurant in Rome”.

Squint/Opera recently completed a collaboration with artist Wolfgang Buttress to create a series of digital installations and integrated graphic applications for the UK pavilion at the Milan Expo 2015, Italy, which opened 1 May. The behaviour and living environment of bees, and the important role they play as part of the global ecosystem, are at the heart of this spectacular pavilion.

Torre del Borgo is one of the most famous fortified buildings in the history of Bergamo. The powerful and accurate quality of the medieval walls, the integrity of the fortified structure, the central position in the village, give to this artifact the most complete sense of monument. The restoration project has dealt with different aspects that conditioned the conservation, the use and the valorisation of the building: the structural instability of the walls and floors, the lack of an adequate system of connection between plans, the total absence of plant networks, degradation and precariousness of internal and external stone facings, lack of windows and adequate interior finishes, on floors and walls. The entire work has developed pursuing a dual purpose, first identifying solutions to the problems of degradation, second offering an architectonic and functional reinterpretation of the building.The project is designed to be made into two functional lots of action: with the completion of Lot 1, are now fully accessible the four halls of the central tower and the spaces of the new building C intended to services and distribution. Important intervention is certainly the inclusion of the new system of ramps and walkways, made entirely with an iron structure, which is articulated between the spaces of the central tower and the new building, connecting the various levels of the complex. Lot 2 will include the redevelopment of public space in Piazza del Borgo with the creation of a large area covered and protected to the road, in direct continuity with the new pavement of the square. With the completion of the restoration project, Torre del Borgo will be able to accommodate the Public Library of Villa d’Adda.

I have always seen in the community life of bees an urban instruction; something that is very close to the motto \”unity is strength\”.
A Bienenhaus is also this: a macro-structure can accommodate more living cells.
The teaching must have come from the comb itself in those early beekeepers who decided to protect their hives in these small buildings.
