25 best architecture firms in Rome

The origins of European architecture and urbanism are always traced to Rome. Roman building continues to be a primary source and reference point for design, whether it be for material use, for construction methods, for spatial organization, or for advising the hierarchy and proportions of a building relative to its individual components. It is doubtless that contemporary Roman architects draw from this built history in which they are immersed and, for many, in which they have lived and were educated. While many Rome-based practices work on projects sited in cities around the globe, the focus for a great number is on the renovation and rehabilitation of heritage buildings and urban sites within Italy. Whether local or international in their... More

PG HOUSE

This house is a significant example of a path along which every proposal and choice were custom-made. Every detail, material and piece of furniture were tailored thanks to a continuous dialog. The rich exchange between the studio and the client resulted in a very solid house: two opposing prisms, distinguished also by two different claddings. The volume in foreground is plastered in gray, the largest one is cladded in Cardoso stone, which is also used for all the external flooring and for the ground floor, indoors. Be Architettura Where there is no stone, the clad and other furnishings are made of different materials, but everything is in the same shade of gray to feed the perception of a solidly grounded house. The indoors landscape... More

Casa 60

MEMORY  A suspended horizontal surface and the ground trap the space where life develops. The outside, the inside. The stillness, the movement. The void, the all. By folding both surfaces, they modify their horizontal and discover different heights between them. The void was there and it was subtly trapped for a family to develop their life. Caption CONTEXT  -CLIENT  A family that decides to live in the security of a private neighborhood, one of many that emerge in the big cities of Argentina. -The PROGRAM  Living room that allows different ways of living. Dining room, almost barbecue area, that when you want you can divide it from the living room. A Kitchen that is directly connected to the dining room but... More

Garen Jewellery

As part of Garen Jewellery's overall branding refresh, Pitch Architecture + Design was engaged to reimagine the slowly aging interior.The brief from the client was to retain the general layout of the original floor plate while refreshing the interior to represent the updated brand identity. Pitch has proposed to declutter the interior by removing some of the under utilised elements and replacing the contrasting colour palette with soft and inviting material. Chris Murray As a result, soft pink linen curtain was proposed to become the backdrop of the space to soften the overall store atmosphere where the jewellery shine bright in the foreground. Travertine stone tiles and soft full wool carpet replaced the dark black display units and... More
