House C – House for a Porsche 02 in Milan, Italy by gianluca milesi architecture

Friday, April 7th, 2017

Article source: gianluca milesi architecture

This project is an example of simple architecture that can become an interesting and particular one because has been thought for a very particular situation and for a very particular person.

We think such an architecture can be suitable to be considered an XS architecture because is really “small” and because its architecture, simple and minimal but particular for the shape and the materials, can assume a meaning itself, despite of its dimensions.

Article source: Andrea Trebbi Architect

In Bologna, the restaurant Battibecco is surely more famous than the central lane where it is situated and from which it took name.

The restaurant opened in 1978 into a small location and immediately became famous for the excellent quality of its cooking.

Renovation of an alpine barn in Canale D’agordo, Italy by SBSA – Sandri Barbara Smaniotto Andrea Architetti Associati

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Article source: SBSA – Sandri Barbara Smaniotto Andrea Architetti Associati

The original building dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and it is an example of the so-called “tabià”, a typical alpine construction, famous in our region Veneto which was used in farmer times as stables and barn. The structural type of this tabià is called “a telaio” with wooden beams and pillars.

Since it is placed on a sloping ground, the tabià has a partially buried basement, composed by walls made of stone.

Article source: tIPS ARCHITECTS

An architectonic and graphic procedure is a continuous evolution of tests, drafts and tries.

Everybody knows and \”loves\” the final result but the design process that made it, belongs to the creative team.

We thought to cover the walls of the ACM GRAPHIC LAB by these attempts , by these pieces of paper, used them like a classical element of the interior design: the wallpaper.

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Article source: gianluca milesi architecture

This project is a project for a house to be built on a slope. More precisely is an extension of an existing house.

SPFF – S.Pellegrino Flagship Factory in Bergamo, Italy by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group

Friday, March 31st, 2017

Article source: BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group 

The S.Pellegrino brand identity is deeply rooted in its origin in the San Pellegrino Terme: from the majestic nature, purity of the source and historical heritage, to the century-long development of craft and Italian way of life. As such, the new S.Pellegrino Flagship Factory should not be a radical superposition of new messages or foreign elements, but rather an enhancement and elevatation of the qualities that are already abundant in and around the river valley. BIG proposes an architecture that offers a fresh take on an ancient wisdom, revisiting the classic elements of Italian architecture and urbanism: the arcade, the viale, the piazza and the portico create an architectural environment where production and consumption, nature and architecture, outside and inside, and making and enjoying are integrated to elevate the experience for visitors as well as S.Pellegrino staff.

Borgo Merlassino in Alessandria, Italy by deamicisarchitetti

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: deamicisarchitetti 

Located amongst the Gavi vineyards, right in the heart of the La Raia farm, lies Borgo Merlassino. A rural resort combining traditional agricultural activity with new accommodation facilities: La Raia B&B, the La Raia Foundation headquarters, warehouses, laboratories for the Waldorf school and a reading hall. The genesis of the refurbishment and transformation of the former hamlet starts from the pre-existing structures. It was promptly decided that, rather than the actual buildings, it was the character and quality of the relevant spaces between the structures that needed ample renovation. The design statement envisaged contamination and contradiction as a strong structuring identity of the Site. The use of rammed-earth walls, the choice of traditional colours of buildings in Liguria and the reinterpretation of traditional building techniques have jointly attributed a new character to the hamlet. The senses of time, the scale, as well as the balance between old and new were the real motif of the design.
