Recovery Project for a rural building in Salento, Italy by Luca Zanaroli Architetto

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Article source: Luca Zanaroli Architetto

“When I discovered what would have become my refuge in the Salento area, my first impression of the building and the location was its “monumental nature”. Not for any special artistic or architectural value (it is, in fact, a rather rudimental and poor building), but for its expression of strength and character, which is typical of the nature and culture of the area. That was when I decided that the restoration project should have had the purpose to maintain my original impression intact.”

Blaas general partnership in Bolzano, Italy by monovolume architecture + design

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

Article source: monovolume architecture + design

The company Blaas in Bolzano is specialized in electro-mechanics. In the new head office the company presents its new product range and offers repair service.

On the ground floor of the building there is the sales division, on the first floor the exposition area and the repair shop. All administration offices are located on the second floor. The overall impression of the structure is a homogenous and closed building. Nevertheless, there exists a separation between the public and the private sector. The client can perceive this clear and formal internal division already from the outside.

Article source: Comfort Architecten

A generous single family home in Toblach, South Tyrol / Italy. The basic characteristics of this building are the staggering of the different volumes and the central courtyard. Thanks to this concept it is possible to guide light into parts of the basement, where the fitness and wellnes area is located. The ground floor houses the entrance area, a work room, and a spacious living space oriented towards the atrium, with a lowered level couch area. The kitchen and dining area, staggered on a higher level, can be reached by a wide staircase, a true design element. Another half floor up, there are the bedrooms of the building, as well as a small apartment, also accessible via an external staircase. At the top level is the master bedroom with an open bathroom and a dressing room.

The Patient Gardener in Politecnico di Milano, Italy by Visiondivision

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: Visiondivision

Visiondivision was invited as guest professors by Politecnico di Milano for their week-long workshop MIAW2. The workshop, playing with the metaphor of forests, aimed to generate new visions to explain the contemporary and immediate future ways of being in the spirit of green design, resilience, recycling, and ethical consciousness. Our intention with our project was to construct a study retreat at the campus with patience as the main key for the design. If we can be patient with the building time we can reduce the need for transportation, waste of material and different manufacturing processes, simply by helping nature grow in a more architectonic and useful way. The final result can be enjoyed at Politecnico di Milano in about 60 years from now.

The abode of the outside (automatic and intelligent house) in Rome, Italy by altro_studio

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Article source: altro_studio

The form of this 80ms house  derives from the tracks drawn on the ground. It is a simple shape, characterized by a pure geometry (the parallelepiped) and, like the rest of our projects, it is not governed by the quest for an architectural shape conceived exclusively like something changeable, what is the really matters is the expression of a concept represented in its essence. So the grid, characterized by 3×3 meter panes, becomes the location of the movement; a space in which the motion expression entrusted to the architectural elements generates a dimension of the “Undefined”, a space “out of itself” in which total absence reigns.
