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

Tani Malandi High School, Mayotte

Building a school in Mayotte means dealing with many issues on several levels in a very different way than here in Europe – educationally, but also socio-economically and ecologically. The small Comorian island of Mayotte, north of Madagascar, belongs to France and is part of the EU. Of the approximately 180,000 inhabitants, more than half are younger than 20. In view of the strong population growth and the resulting increase in the number of pupils, the outdated temporary multi-purpose secondary school needs to be replaced with new buildings. The architecture should meet the requirements and goals of a state school, but also consider the specific needs of young Mahorans. The adolescents and young adults need a framework that promotes...

Adela Apartments

The project came about with the development of a large residential block close to the Elwood foreshore and Port Philip Bay. The brief simply requested a spacious apartment product that was cutting edge and contemporary, but subtle both inside and out. The concept of a large apartment resulted in six single level dwellings, each with the proportions of a small house. The apartments are low maintenance, functionally adaptable to appeal to a range of potential residents, and highly sustainable. Externally, rather than go for a standard “stacked wedding cake” form, the building was set back significantly from the adjoining properties on the lower levels. This allowed the main volume of the building to have vertical sides and reduce... More
