eMOTION(ing) topography in Pordenone, Italy by Disguincio&Co srl

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Article source: Disguincio&Co srl

The project is about the ri-territorialization of a series of commercial warehouses: combining the need to renovate the facade and to design the parking area in front of the building, the architecture reconnects the building to the surrounding environment through the staging of a new landscape that tries to absorb the character of that country side, now forgotten by that area of the town, outskirt of Pordenone.

Shining Surface in Milan, Italy by Park Associati

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

Article source: Park Associati

Park Associati architects work on ‘human scale’ architecture. Issues such as context, environment, routes, landscapes and views are in their everyday vocabulary. Their buildings relate with the landscapes with such a lightness and harmony to make them looking perfectly in place, as if they had always been there. Yet they are very recognizable signs, they have contemporary concepts, shapes and surfaces, made with advanced techniques and materials. But this is precisely the key: a historical knowledge and a contemporary vision. In Park’s works, we can feel suggestions from the Modern Movement, lessons from certain Milan architectures and condominiums of the Fifties and Sixties, to the purest Mies van der Rohe of the Twenties, up to Antonio da Sangallo and Michelangelo of Palazzo Farnese. All these inspirations are assimilated, forgotten, and re-invented.

House M in Meran (BZ), Italy by monovolume architecture+design

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Article source: monovolume architecture+design

The project M, a residential building in the centre of Meran, is embedded in the quit area of Obermais. The concept of the design was it to play with transparent and solid surfaces what fallows fascinating insights and outlooks. The interior melts together with the outside space. The terrain flows through the building and finds his renewal in the pool- and meadow area. Because of a refined external design and the arrangement of the pool, lawn, garden and house the whole concept seems like a unity with seamless transition. The ground floor follows the slightly sloping ground like a staircase to get a large garden area. Because of engineering technology considerations the building is conceived as a compact volume with one underground and two upper floors. From the construction point of view the house is built as a concrete construction, furnished with upgraded insulation. The glass-facade, door and window elements are executed as 3 layered glazier.

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.

Verbania Opera Hall in Italy by Andrea Maffei Architects

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Article source: Andrea Maffei Architects

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.

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.
