The project for the new Redemptoris Mater parish complex of Cinisi (PA) was conceived as a little campus of religious faith. It is a singular entity of comfortably inhabitable spaces intimately related to each other. The strong spiritual impact of the complex arises from its dialog with its historical, artistic, and social context, and from the holistic deployment of architecture with fundamental building practices for people of today – as it does in the synergy between music and biology, between agriculture and sociology, and between psychology and religion.

Passivhaus Marlegno is a single family house on two levels situated in Bolgare (BG), Northern Italy.
ECO-SUSTAINABILITY is the key word of this project: its structure consists in wooden load bearing walls and floors made of wooden joists assembled without glues, thanks to an innovative construction system called Tavego.
Raw materials come exclusively from Italian PEFC certified forests. This allows Marlegno to take full advantage of the ecological characteristics of a natural material such as wood, reducing GHG emissions and making the interior spaces healthier.

Feeling at home is one of the deepest and most pleasing emotion we can have.
Indeed ours is not a simple ‘house’. And our home is as much a complex array of different spaces as it is the set of the so many different activities we live.

Our task was to modernise and complete a two-storey hospital pavilion in Melzo. We were asked to design clinical laboratories and a morgue. The extremely diverse requirements of these two additions strongly influenced our definition of the interiors and the composition of the architectural masses.

Architect Silvia Allori renewed an apartment designed in the 70s by a Florentine architect, who thought of a space on a human scale in every single detail. The white laminate is predominant, and it has been used playfully on the walls of the living room to hide cabinets, a table, neon lights and plasters, which are never exposed.

GrasSea Ristopescheria is located in Fondi, a little city in Italy, near Rome and Naples.
The theme of the project was to embrace with a single architectural gesture the space able to contain the different types of activities that take place inside the building. Fish Market, Restaturant, functional space and external space were to appear as a single continuous space, accessible at the functional level and at the level of perception. The Design also had to be modern, bright and with references to the marine theme, of course, reinterpreted in a modern key. The ceilings with flowing lines and dynamic, the wooden flooring which then becomes the kitchen wall that recalls the jetties piers, the stainless steel doors and windows, the circular windows placed high up on the window, are all internal references to the marine theme. The rest of the lines, including the slots game on the kitchen wall that make it visible, the monobloc bench coated in resin, rimarcate with illumination with specially designed, make the functional environment, just like the modern and dynamic activities that takes place inside it. Particular attention was paid to the lighting sudio. Exist 3 different types of lighting according to requirements. Definitely the most distinctive and visible element is the bright ceiling track that combines all the space visually, and that cuts the wall up to get off the ground. The outdoor area covered attracts more of the classic tavern fishing style, with a ambient and lighting warmer and traditional. Like a path between two different ways of living and seeing the sea. YO.DAA has also worked on the creation of the logo, the creation of the website and the development of the brand, along with the implementation of the architectural design.

The production of 176.000 liters of whisky by Italy’s first and only destillery of this beverage takes place in a building reflecting the company’s pioneer character through a rigorous organization and an expressive façade. Inside the double height of the production zone allows a view to the underground silos and the stills from the store situated at the entrance level. All the functions and the three stories of the building are wrapped within al lattice of cement blocks, colored with soft earth tones, forming a modular scheme as used in farm buildings of the area. So the complex on the outside appears as a simple cube nuanced only by the gaps of the lattice.
