The design of the recently completed residence Pfarrmessner presents itself to the observer in a uniform and almost solid manner. The building is situated at the southern outskirts of the city of Sterzing/Vipiteno, at approximately 950 meter above sea level. It is also the southernmost city of South Tyrol, an autonomic province of Italy. The residence, which is generally orientated east and westwards, is separated into four storeys, whilst each one of the four apartments develops differently through and on these floors. These very individual arrangements of floor layouts, as well as the patchy positioning of openings and loggias find their common ground in the coherent exterior. Projected as a building of solid construction, it features a concrete bearing structure with an insulated plaster facade. Its monolithic and robust appearance is referring to some regional predominant porphyry stone, which is typically characterised by its reddish-brown colouration. The prefiguration of this very stone was implemented to the facade by the use a high pigmented moulding plaster, marked above all by its organic fine-grain amount.

Santo Spirito apartment, located in Florence, consists essentially of two rooms: the living room and its mezzanine with double bedroom and the dining room and its little mezzanine with single room.
The project was conceived and structured entirely around a matrix of 6,5 cm that affects all three dimensions: in this way, a “tri dimensional space” is created, whose perception changes according to the point of view.
