The project for this small detached house at Orsara di Puglia, is the outcome of a close collaboration between client and architect (lengthy discussion between brothers, to be precise). It is a very simple volume: a white cube measuring 10 meters on each side, excavated, squared, geometrical, apparently abstract, but actually similar to many buildings in the countryside of Foggia. A simple elementary volume, in contrast to the complex and highly articulated surrounding houses.

The site is located at a point between the square and the church of a small village in the Po Valley. The new building develops around a small inner courtyard. The front facing the street has no openings apart from the main entrance. Four metres high, it underlines the idea of the threshold conceived as an element of transit and delimitation that separates an outer world, without rules or qualities, from a controlled artificial one.

In a forest of oaks, ash and maple trees, on Bologna hill, in a place of large naturalistic beauty, on a steep and chalky land, rose a small warehouse beside a private house. At its place today rises a small hosts house on two levels, conceived like a modern architecture adapting itself to the landscape with innovative and contemporary style. A compact volume embedded in the land that takes advantage of the characteristics of the ground and the place.

The secret garden is one of Italy’s most characteristic places. Enclosed by four walls and protected from the chaos of the town, these gardens were literally private paradises for the use and enjoyment of rich aristocrats or, more often, for monks and nuns.
The booth for Ceramics of Italy is intended to be a little private paradise where people can rest from the chaos of the show and enjoy the best Italian food and coffee.

The operation of transforming a villa on the coast of Trieste stands as a moment marking a break in the equilibrium between violently rugged landscape and its control through rationalization and terraced gardens, retaining walls and residential volumes. In this sense, the renovation of a split-level house dating back to early 70s, by the partial demolition of existing building structure and the reorganization of the distributive spaces, looks for a new dynamism and a new relationship with the landscape, natural and man-made.

The design by architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp), which was honoured with first prize in an international competition, converts a former industrial heritage building to the north of Bologna into a modern technology park. The factory facilities of the former tobacco monopoly, designed by the famous Italian engineer and architect Pier Luigi Nervi are carefully modernised and converted to accommodate new functions. The additional new buildings carry the signature of the listed historic buildings dating from the 1940s, albeit in modern form.

The design solution for the apartment started from the need to modify the original project that included the execution of a partition wall in front of the entrance; this wall delimited the area deputed to food preparation closed by sliding glass doors and furniture provided with angular. This solution, however, prevented a rational distribution of the residence, having an area of 30 square meters, could contain only a small table and a sofa. The project, planned to greatly reduce the wall of the kitchen until it becomes a shoulder retaining wall system of open living space which becomes a distinctive design element.

Giacomuzzi house is a duplex building. It is conceived as a highly compact body to fulfill energy issues and it fits into the sloping terrain to exploit the landscape. The house is oriented towards the path of the sun and overlooks a stunning sight. The site is located on the outskirts of the village Caldaro sulla strada del vino, where between the house and the lake Caldaro there are just fields and vineyards. To show up this wonderful view, a continuous wall closes three sides of the building, whereas the south facade features wide windows and balconies.

CasAbate is a “bridge house” and is located in one of the more fascinating street of Bologna. It has the typical characteristics of the old house of the city center; there’s a very long corridor, about 20 meters, and a little courtyard. The new project has the aim of improving the space of the corridor, the light comfort and the energy efficiency of the building.
