Gucci Headquarters in Milan, Italy by PIUARCH

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Article source:  PIUARCH

The redevelopment project of the old Caproni factory focuses on enhancing the stylistic features of the 1920s’ architecture and aims to transform this old plant into a large complex for Gucci, holding offices, showrooms and spaces for fashion shows and operations connected with graphics, as well as a canteen and restaurant. Recovery and enhancement of the characteristic shed buildings was the first element of the redevelopment project: set out in a regular pattern across the site and featuring modular structural bays, the abandoned industrial warehouses with exposed-brick facades generate, thanks to their spatial layout, a seamless interaction between the inside and outside. Particular attention was paid to the Hangar recovery, a volume of “exceptional” size, once intended for the final assembly of Caproni aircraft, that is now used to house the fashion shows from 2017. Moreover, the Hangar is enhanced by a large open and covered square connected with the main pedestrian axis facing to via Mecenate. This covered square acts as the core of the pedestrian system that includes a tree-lined square, common gardens, patios and green walls. Inside the regular layout of solid structures and empty spaces, a new six-storey tower closely interacts with the old construction: characterized by a glass façade covered with a regular pattern of sunscreens, the new building breaks down the site’s symmetry and tends to draw together all the different functions.

Historical Future: Milan Reborn in Italy by MAD Architects

Monday, March 19th, 2018

Article source: MAD Architects 

MAD Architects presents their research proposal Historical Future: Milan Reborn for the Scali Milano project, community-reactivation masterplan research headed by FS Sistemi Urbani (FS Urban Systems) and Comune di Milano (the Municipality of Milan) with the support of Regione Lombardia (Lombardy Region). MAD Architects, along with four other international architecture firms (Stefano Boeri Architetti, Mecanoo Architecten, MIRALLES TAGLIABUE EMBT, and Cino Zucchi Architetti), was invited to envision a series of Milan’s dilapidated railyards as productive social landscapes that establish a harmony between Milan’s citizenry, the larger metropolitan region, and the natural environment. MAD proposes that these railyards become interconnected micro-systems conforming to five spatial concepts: “City of Connections,” “City of Green,” “City of Living,” “City of Culture,” and “City of Resources.”

Dmail new logo and new format store in Milan, Italy by Migliore+Servetto Architects

Monday, November 6th, 2017

Article source: Migliore+Servetto Architects 

A dynamic and lively sign able to express the meaning of a young, curious brand, is the new logo designed by Migliore+Servetto Architects for dmail. The circle is the generating element that defines the soft borders of the single letters, while two dots, placed over the beam of the “i”, mark its uniqueness. From a chromatic point of view black and white are combined with a uniform bright yellow, a symbol of light and energy.

Cocktail Bar Brera Milan in Italy by SBG architetti

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Article source: SBG architetti

Damascegliere is a restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of the Brera district in Milan. The conversion, in a two-floor brick vaulted warehouse-type building, has large windows overlooking the now glamourous Corso Garibaldi. The design concept for the restaurant is built around two long counters where clients can sit facing either the barman or the chef at work. The outdoor table has the same peninsula-shaped counter giving a continuity between the two spaces. On warm days the arched window opens up to make the inside of the restaurant completely accessible from the pedestrian road. The kitchen is partially visible through semitransparent glass. New services have been installed leaving the brick vaults untouched; a sophisticated air circulation system provides the possibility of keeping different functions such as the bar and kitchen in the same environment as the main seating area. In the basement the absence of windows and natural light is compensated by luminous shelves and mirrors over a continous padded bench.
