Villa Carlotta hotel in Sicily, Italy by Architrend Architecture

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: Architrend Architecture

The architectural project articulates the space in response to various demands: relating with the urban context, dialoguing with the various bodies of the building, acting as a filter between indoors and outdoors, responding to the need for living comfort, etc. The direction of the space relates man with the building with the aim of generating places that improve the quality of life. A banal assumption for all designers, but it is precisely for its complex simplicity that there are few examples in which this theoretic base has become an excellent project, without falling into the banal or the paternalist.

Hans Klotz limited company in Bolzano, Italy by Monovolume Architecture + Design (designed using ArchiCAD and Atlantis)

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: Monovolume Architecture + Design

Hans Klotz Ltd. is a long-established and successful wholesale company for fruit and vegetables with headquarter in Bozen-Sigmundskron. The new offices should be integrated into an existing building on the company area. To confer an independent character, the necessary spaces were added as an autonomous, two storey volume above the existing ground floor as a kind of architectural parasite. The new building takes up the roof lines of the old, then distorting them to open the volume on the north and west side, towards huge apple plantations. Hence the new construction allows an optimal orientation of the office spaces to the north, combined with a great outlook.

Article source: GruppoFonArchitetti

Venice is an organic city, where the sea water goes in for six hours and goes out for six hours from the lagoon, which surrounds the city.. The saltwater is mixed with fresh water of the lagoon, creating a unique ecosystem, where, perhaps, against nature, man has built. In these green water, due to the life of the seabeds, everything is reflected, starting from the sky which provides colour variations throughout the day, seasons and weather conditions.

MAXXI supercedes the notion of the museum as ‘object’ or – presenting a field of buildings accessible to all, with no firm boundary between what is ‘within’ and what is ‘without’. Central to this new reality are confluent lines – walls intersecting and separating to create interior and exterior spaces.

Tile and Concrete in Parma, Italy by Francesco Di Gregorio & Karin Matz

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: Francesco Di Gregorio & Karin Matz

Located in Lasagnana, on a tiny street in the middle of Val Parma, the ground level of a former stable has been converted into an apartment / studio for an young couple . Dimensions and shapes come from the position of existing elements: windows, walls and columns. The strongest element of the stable was for us the “whole space”. A bathroom is the only volume added, completely covered in white 10×10 cm tiles that bring light and uniformity. It is a freestanding structure where space has been turned inside out. Inside the functions needed, outside the circulation.

The Ponte Parodi project is part of the Italian city of Genoa’s plan for the revitalization of the harbour front area. As the industrial activities relocate, the city is reclaiming the vacated waterfront area by adding public attractors and creating a new destination, designed to extend the city centre towards the waterfront.

The competition design for the Ponte Parodi harbour front area was based on three principal actions; linking, programming and clustering, with clear goals responding to the needs of the site, its surroundings and the inhabitants of Genoa. The three original actions correspond to the three values which guide the design: sociability, quality and discovery.
