The office conceived a design approach oriented lo look at the site specific conditions: we try to read in deep all the levels of the reality interfering in a place. We come up with a story to tell, a bespoke reading of the sites, their conditions, characteristics, answers to incoming pressures, dynamics and forces. A story, not about the past but about the future: a framework able to reveal a possibile new condition to come.
We have a long term experience in working with the public administration, ensuring a capacity in envisioning urban solutions taking into account the physical impact of the transformations expected. We use to work to large and complex urban development plans with an high level of attention to the final physical organisation of the built environment inside the actual development processes.
Our projects envision new landscapes where buildings and open spaces interfere deeply, and new natural elements may appear in the urban contexts. We conceive buildings as direct answers to the emerging conditions of the sites. They try to clarify some aspects we read in advance.
Our projects are simple, but articulated in some crucial aspects we focus on: the open spaces and the intermediate spaces, the connections, the ground floor articulation and its vitality, and, in general, the urban effect of every intervention.
Furthermore, we use to intervene on existing buildings searching for specific new balances between new elements and the old fabric, leveraging on their structure, construction techniques and materials.
