The planning process identifies an architecture that interprets the urban condition in which it appears, taking as generative condition, the new relationship with the southern part of the park Tarello here that the south end towards the street Lamarmora to continue north to street Sostegno. In a context of macro-isolated objects, many with clear vertical characterization, there is the recent intervention by the Forum and Banca Lombarda, which together with the park Tarello, while building a partial urban identity. To strengthen this condition, it is proposed that a fundamental principle the idea of continuity space, where the measure proposed architecture, space and structure compliant reference. The building does not look like an object suspended within a batch but an element that builds the site, integrating coherently open spaces, built spaces and relationships spaces. The extensive scale of the intervention allows, despite its bias, to identify a mode of urban construction that exceeds the factionalism of the atopic background. The architecture is contextualizes alone, in the sense thatarchitecture builds the site, opposing dispersion and peripheralization, extent and identity, without falling into a historicist interpretation of regressive.

In 2009, IB Studio began to develop for a private client a project of a new building in one of the most dramatic Italian landscapes. After more than six years, IB studio finally obtained all the permits to build it.
In the interim, IB Studio had to continuously adapt its concept to a complex and demanding set of bureaucratic rules, often at odds with aesthetic and functional principles.

An home is the place where you feel good every time you enter inside, a sort of shelter inside the town. Not too big and not too small. The way you think about your life out of the work is your home. It Is the place for you and for your family, with all the utilities but in the same time simple and easy to maintain. And also the home has not to consume too much energy and it’s better if the energy comes from the sun. This home is made in part with ancient materials, that come from the grandparent’s old house, as the wood and the bricks that recall to memory the roots of the family. New materials as Corian, are used in the furniture and the stairs. The atmosphere inside this country house is extremely warm and is due to the color of natural material used for the interior wall and for the floor.

1.The reuse of two former artisan sheds is the opportunity to score an anonymous urban environment and degraded by the power and strength of the architecture. In this project we used crude materials to make the surfaces very expressive.

In the project the attic apartment of an apartment house was expanded by an additional room. The apartment is conformed over 2 floors. On the upper floor there are the living-room and the kitchen, on the lower the bedrooms.
Due to the client’s whish that the extension should meet several uses, this expansion was consciously left without precise function.

A cemetery is a place of collective memory. Walking in these places re-dimensions the scope of our efforts in relation to the passing of time.
It is difficult to find a \”pattern\” in the expansions of the last decades. This probably reflects the uncertainty and cultural disconnection experienced during the era of mass industrialization.

The eighteenth century villa owned by the Sclopis family, in Salerano Canavese, was used after World War 2 as an orphange, and later as a higher educational institute. The brief was to convert the complex into an assisted residence for terminal cancer and Alzheimer patients. The project restored the family villa and substituted the adjacent reinforced concrete volume with a new, steel-framed structure to accommodate a hospice. Internal floor heights were adapted to those of the older building, so as to eliminate differences of level and facilitate horizontal circulation. A centrally located stretcher-bearing lift integrates the vertical communications to provide quick service to all rooms. The complex was equipped with new heating, plumbing and electrical systems and medical gas supplies. The service units were re-allocated to the ground floor, the communal areas to the first, and the guest rooms to the upper levels. Wooden brise-soleils screen the glazed fronts of the hospice to soften light entering the rooms and to mitigate the impact of the new construction on the surrounding period architecture. The brise-soleil system is extended to the copper cladding of a neighbouring pavilion, internally reorganised to house the Alzheimer patients’ day centre.
