The project stems from the need to communicate the entire living area, breaking down the physical barriers between vertical entrance, kitchen and living room in order to obtain a more comprehensive in what is the most experienced of the house. The shades parietal contain two unique contrasting colors: white and gray, so as to emphasize the joints and movements of the shares of the soffit of the slab. The kitchen located in the nucleus of the apartment is non-invasive and sassy, but he relates in a balanced manner with the living room and especially with the entry. The entrance takes a strong character to open space given by the glass wall chosen for its quality scenograficitÃ , elegance and visual permeability.

The intervention area is located in a residential neighborhood in the center of Intra (Verbania), consisting of residential buildings and a plaza parking space. The project’ objective was to create a building to transform the existing context around. The form has been designed both to solve the functional needs of the theatre and to design an absolute form, which could become a new point of reference for citizens and a distinguishing element of the context around it. In the contemporary city, the buildings always led to similar mixed contexts in which we find no evidence that can address the tensions and movements of the city in a specific way. The purpose of a public building as the new theater of Verbania was this: to become a coordinating element of the city and transform the context.

China, Italy … A history of continuous connections between the two nations that started in the XIII century from the voyage of Marco Polo with his masterpiece: “il Milione”.
A narration of the encounter of two millenary cultures.
The project for the Italian Trade Center “I Principi d’Italia” looks for the architectural expression of this historical encounter. From a conceptual point of view the project is a narration, the narration of a voyage between China and Italy and so, of the encounter of the eastern and the western culture.

The project involved the renovation of an existing restaurant in Sommacampagna, a town located on the moraine hills between Lake Garda and Verona. The restaurant, opened in 2013, is characterized by a few simple elements: the use of poor materials such as wood and iron, the division into different spatial units with architectural volumes with a strong identity, the use of black color, the careful study of light.

In Venice, right to the entrance of the Giardini is the Spanish pavilion of the Biennial. Without prejudice to more thorough interventions later, the pavilion façade –and the pavilion as a whole for that matter- urgently needed to present an image befitting a country emerging strongly in the heart of Europe.
