Autodesk’s New Office in Milan, Italy by Goring & Straja Studio

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Article source: Goring & Straja Studio

The exterior of the project in dialogue with the interior.
The architectural context has influenced the design of interior spaces in two ways: positively and negatively; the building it is not exactly an office building, quite the opposite, because there are no requirements such as flexibility and efficiency. So, we found in the site unusual features in 99% of the offices. I mean double-height spaces, or plan without large rectangular areas and depth, that could suggest us some different lay out.

Microsoft Milan in Italy by Flores Prats Arquitectos

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Article source: Flores Prats Arquitectos

In 2007 Microsoft Italia chose to establish its headquarters in a rural landscape characterized by the seasonally shifting pattern of agricultural production. The proposal focused on the condition of agricultural fringe, an opportunity to create a transition; to create a meeting point between two technologies, working the fields and working with computers. These two realms of technology develop in parallel, with neither prevailing over the other.

Municipal Library of Greve in Chianti, Italy by mdu architetti

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Article source: mdu architetti

The New Municipal Library of Greve in Chianti, designed by mdu architetti, represents a further step, after the opening of the New Theatre of Montalto di Castro (Italy), in a period of prolific output for this Italian architecture studio, engaged in the realization of several projects inspired by a common thread: architecture as an urban fragment. The Libray of Greve in Chianti  interprets the theme, presenting itself as a light  sculptural volume in terracotta leaned on a travertine stone plinth. The terracotta facade, with its subtle texturals and graphic variations, is conceived as an abstract representation of the signs and colours in the  vineyards of the Chianti region.

Prato Lofts in Tuscany, Italy by mdu architetti

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: mdu architetti

The Prato Lofts, designed by the italian architecture studio mdu architetti, is an investigation on the deep and complex relationships between the public space of the city and the intimacy of the private space of living. The Prato Lofts interpret the theme, generating quite inner spaces for the everyday life related to themselves and to the mutations of the sky, that are concealed from the urban chaos by a silent concrete wall.

DMB House in Montagna, Italy by act_romegialli

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Article source: act_romegialli

The project is located on the ground  of the alluvial cone of the Davaglione stream in Montagna, Valtellina, Italy.

To the east of the plot there are the public street and the wall of the stream bank, to the south there is a private house built departing from the right distances from the border, so the quality view is completely obstructed on this side.

Dolomitenblick in Sesto, Italy by Plasma studio

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Article source: Plasma studio

The building is located on a hillside in the Dolomites, at the end of a residential area.

The volume has been developed mainly from its pragmatic functional request to host 6 independent apartments with one common circulation: through a cut that marks the main access and the division of the units the volume is splitted into 2 halves. Besides its functional meaning this incision becomes the main defining element of the building: from the cut at either side a strip unfolds that forms the balustrade of a generous covered balcony and ends into the surrounding topography. Following the steep natural hillside with each floor the strips and the façade jump back.

It was the will of the Client to make a beauty center with a strong communicative impact, in which the user could immediately receive a message of efficiency, timeliness and sophistication. The container in which we would have to work is within a historic restricted building. The Superintendence has been an obstacle not easily pass. The volume in question is located on the first floor of an extension built in the early decades of the last century, in a noble palace in Rome.

Sansepolcro Cemetery in Arezzo, Italy by Studio Zermani e Associati

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Article source: Studio Zermani e Associati

Sansepolcro, the halfway point between Santiago de Compostela and Jerusalem, and birthplace of Piero della Francesca, is surrounded by the hills on the border between Tuscany and Umbria that the painter transferred into his own pictorial space. Piero often observed the landscape from inside: for him, the background was important, as was the point of view. The extraordinary perspective application of his images imposes the relationship between eye, architecture or monument, and landscape with didactic clarity. The landscape of Sansepolcro is a place recognised as far back as the description given by Pliny: “Beautiful is the aspect of the region: you can imagine it as an immense amphitheatre, such that only nature is able to create.”
