Casa Prè de Sura in Badia, Italy by Alexander Pfanzelt Architekt

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

Article source: Alexander Pfanzelt Architekt

This gabled house in Italy by Austrian architects Casati has stripy wooden walls on the outside and bumpy limestone walls on the inside. Boxy windows project from the facade and frame views towards the castello di San Martino; a small castle on a nearby hillside. A window in the master bedroom wraps over onto the roof, while others meet the floor so that small children can see out. The limestone aggregate walls surround rooms and hallways on each of the three floors, absorbing moisture from the air, that can cool the house during warmer months. This building presents an unique design solutions which help to make connection with the surrounding landscape.

Article source: Traverso-Vighy


The Ceschi House leans against the 12th century walls of the city of Vicenza. The architects have “listened” to the existing building carefully: restoring the original walls using traditional techniques, while developing the interior as an independent project which allowed the redistribution of the inner spaces in a functional manner.

Energetic and Formal Renovation of an Industrial Building in Italy, Florence by TA Plan Design

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: TA Plan Design

The renovation of the industrial building was done to reduce energy consumption for heating by installing a polystyrene foam “coat” on all the external involucre. Particular attention was also given to the summer behavior of the building that had significant overheating problems. All windows of the south side have been screened by curved section brise-soleil manually adjustable: trough this setting you can block the passage of sunlight in summer and instead favoring the passive solar contribution in winter season.

Raymond Guidacci White House in Foggia, Italy by Raimondo Guidacci Architetto

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: Raimondo Guidacci Architetto

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.
