Infrastructure – Structure – Architecture in Venice, Italy by SUMMARY studio

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Article source: SUMMARY studio

The global housing deficit can be measured in the scale of billions. Two opposite approaches can be seen tackling this issue of such magnitude and scale: an inefficient approach and an efficient approach. An inefficient construction system is labor intensive, and this means that, from a political point of view, using as large a work force as possible will keep unemployment rates low, which is just as important as reducing the housing shortage. At the same time, there will be a need for approaches using very efficient prefabricated constructions able to respond quickly and accountably in terms of technical quality to an ever increasing housing demand.

SCL detached house in Vicenza (Italy) is the first in town designed using straw-bales as building technique.
The project reveals an idea of architecture rooted in archetypes. Two elements, a roof and a wall, define the domestic space.

Clients in the first place asked for a conventional wooden house.

Since the house is the domain of its inhabitants, we tried together to understand what their needs were and what the priorities with an holistic approach to sustainability, design process and construction.

058_Countryside Villa in Montebelluna, Italy by MIDE architetti

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Article source: MIDE architetti 

The building is located near Montebelluna, in the province of Treviso. The design idea results from the will to enhance the existing context, gently immerging the new house into the greenery: two thin horizontal and parallel lines define the foundation and the flat roof, protecting the ‘dwelling box’ in between. The idea of timber cladding greatly integrates the project with the surrounding environment and the use of large windows allows tangible continuity with the surrounding vast green park.

Duomo Suite & Spa in Catania, Italy by SCANNELLA ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Article source: SCANNELLA ARCHITECTS 

It is a building in the Baroque center of Catania, redesigned as hotel which tells Sicily cinematographically. The original core, dating back to the ‘500, was rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake afterwards it was subjected to several changes, the last one date back to the post war period, has changed the intended use until the final one known as hotel. This has been possible to read through the works of restructuring that showed the various layers. The works have tried to bring back to life the original structure while maintaining or reviving the system of vertical connections. The concept wants to communicate an image of Sicily especially told through the suggestions from cinema. To make it possible, representative icons have been used and even decorative apparatus, the quotes, the lighting design, using a contemporary architectural language dedicating to each space a cinematographic work. The work has required a careful research of the significant elements of the “story” told, without neglecting to re-use some original elements of the building, reinventing use and function. Each room is characterized by objects, shapes and colors taken from the movie to which is dedicated in order to allow the customer to soak into the atmosphere that we want to tell. Particular attention was dedicated to the relationship between the plant system and the environments, aiming to its complete integration, reaching almost the invisibility. The charm of the interior benefits of the “popular” atmosphere that represents an extraordinary urban landscape. Eleven Rooms were obtained, some of which are configured as suites, dedicated to a particular director and a small Spa.
