Farace house in Favara, Sicily, Italy by LILLO GIGLIA ARCHITECT

Friday, May 8th, 2020


The Project tackles the delicate topic of integrating a contemporary artifact in the Old Town of Favara (Sicily), in a consolidated frame of row houses.

Knowing the urban tissue, the project management reveals a conscious contemporaneity, based on the building know-how and the ability to obtain high-quality housing outcomes, reflecting the evolving requirements and performances which merge into a complex dimension of the “physics of the building”. Giglia’s Project follows these parameters of attention, rationality and expressivity. The result is simply amazing: a white strong gem proudly set in the surrounding urban fabric – showing a low architectural value – linked with the city through small holes and scenic overlooks on the Old Town.

Alper Derinboğaz’s adaptive re-use project brings life back to one of Istiklal Street’s original arcade buildings, the Fitaş Passage. The existing mid 60’s building holds a significant place in collective memory due to the cultural activities it has accommodated over time. Paying homage to this while revitalizing the building’s relationship to the public, the first phase delivers the new façade onto Istiklal Street.

Loft project in Berlin. The main objective of the project was to create a series of commercial images that would help to rent out the property in a profitable way. There was no clear specification for this project. The main thing was to create a stylish interior, to convey the loft atmosphere and show the benefits of the space.

“Cantera” Market in Morelia, Mexico by HW-STUDIO Arquitectos

Located in the historic downtown of Morelia city, Mexico – two blocks away from one of the most emblematic public squares in the area: Las Rosas -, the project approach began when the client wanted to turn an abandoned wine cellar of 8.00 x 40.00 meters, into a gastronomic market. When we met the old warehouse, we like the idea, but most of all we liked the silence that was felt (uncommon quality in the downtown of a Mexican city), we also thought it was a good opportunity to combine our language with the architectures of the past and to explore the relationship and the dialectic between both.
