The building is located within the pre-existing compound of Scuola Edile di Bergamo-SEB (school for construction workers), an heterogeneous mix of edifices built over the past 50 years that this new architecture joins accurately.
Conceived as a mixed-use architecture, the building encompasses a variety of spaces devoted to the different processes and crafts of the construction industry: labs where future builders learn by doing, classrooms for theoretical training, meeting halls, first-aid stations etc.

From a simple and innovative design idea comes the permanent exhibition system designed by Migliore+Servetto Architects for the Palazzo Mosca – Pesaro City Art Museum, to create fast, autonomous and flexible set ups.
“The narrative line”, this is the name given to this system, is composed of two metallic tracks – a common thread that connects the different exhibition areas following their perimeter – that contain the attachment system for the works of art, the display cases and the graphic supports, adaptable to the different exhibition materials.

We like thinking about this house as a transposition on our territory of a Californian Case Study House of the 1950s and 60s. The structure is of course adapted to the local climate and landscape, but the spirit that generated this design is that of simplicity and of being self-confident with the place as it had been for those so famous houses.

Ospitalità diffusa is the all-Italian concept which is gaining more and more attention within the ultimate frontiers of the hospitality industry: it mainly revolves around the revamping of existing buildings peppered across the countryside or located in small villages. A concept which has long been conceived differently by other countries. This new interpretation is right where the project GREEN_ZERO has its roots: a new modular housing devoted to the accommodation sector; a suite entrenched in a sustainable shell to be installed in the woods, at seaside, in the heart of the countryside, or wherever the landscape permits.

A sea almost completely built, with a few remaining spots agricultural, crossed by the lines of the roadways of high slip along the east-west: this is the view of the plain of Florence, Prato and Pistoia from the hills that surround it. You can identify the three town centers to the higher settlement density that characterizes them than building more dispersed around them, but now the city has replaced the campaign in the perception of internal hierarchies of the territory. From this vantage point on the hills is only imaginable, at night, the darkness that up to fifty years ago enveloped with the few weak lights at its old centers: the transition from day to night was a gradual dissolution of the light in the silence.

Set on the hills just outside the city of Turin, CASA Y is a family house designed for a professional couple with 3 children. Clients’ needs were very large spaces devoted to family life and a low-impact energy and house.
Tucked into the hillside, this discreet volume consists in the juxtaposition of two simple parallelepipeds, one in fair-faced concrete and the other in glass covered with cor-ten steel. Concrete and cor-ten are a stylistic choice and a functional one, the answer to the client’s need of ease of maintenance and long-term durability.

The house for a psychologist, a nurse and their young daughter is designed as the extension of an existing one-floor building in the historic center of Polignano a Mare, in southern Italy. While the old tufo facade remains almost unmodified, the new volume above is clearly defined through the use of lighter materials: a double skin system – made of glass/aluminum large windows screened by steel and wood retractable panels – allows natural light in, while preventing heating.

Uniting the faculties of Law and Political Science within a single, modern campus for 5,000 students, the project has created flexible new facilities for Turin University, as well as establishing new connections between the institution and wider community. The design links the former Italgas site on the southern bank of the River Dora with the neighbourhood of Borgo Rossini, regenerating a formerly industrial quarter close to the historic heart of the city, and turning the former source of Turin’s energy into an educational powerhouse to drive future prosperity.
