Testi 223

The project area is located in Viale Fulvio Testi 223 in Milan, and it is an opportunity to recover and enhance the structure of the former Pirelli Institute, built in the 1950s, after several transformations. The structure, once used as a workshop-school and now abandoned, is composed of two parts: one used as classrooms and later transformed into offices, and one that is a typical factory made up of a sequence of bays with a pitch of about 8 metres and a length varying between 15 and 30 metres with an average height of 7 metres.

The Red House

We were charged with the design of a multifamily house on a smaller vacant plot in a semi-open development. The biggest challenge here lay in the shape of the plot: very narrow in front and widening towards the back. In addition, it also had to connect seamlessly to the adjacent blind façade of the house Ypsilon Business Photography Ypsilon Business Photography In order to make the different building levels visible in a quest for recognisability and a captivating volumetry, incisions were made, as it were, where limited overhangs provide the shadow effect desired. These incisions provide a logical transition between the different building depths at the back. At the front, the overhang forms the covered entrance porch of th... More

Soft Scape: A Textile Landscape

It is a curation of specialized Home Textile products in a perceptively organised space. Light is the primary material that shapes the given space, and it expresses itself through the medium of fabric. This whole scheme of bringing these materials together only reinforces the idea behind these delicate and soft home textile products that textile is always more than its utility.The fabric used in the project is recycled fabric from their own production waste.

Casa Sótão

Sótão House (Attic House) is located in the state of Ceará, in the Serra de Guaramiranga (Guaramiranga Mountains). This region is characterized by a large mass of Atlantic Forest vegetation, offering a unique view. The house design was created to integrate with its natural landscape, amplifying the connection between human living and its surroundings. The site has steep topography, which encourages the design to develop over two floors and an attic. This variation provides different perspectives of the surroundings: the ground floor connects intimately with the tree trunks, the upper floor offers views of the treetops, and the attic provides a stunning view over them.

Fin Short Side Table

An exercise in robust minimalism balanced by fine detailing. Italian timber veneer cylinders of two sizes make for streamlined functionality; slender vertical fins spaced evenly introduce refined visual and textural detail and guide the eye to the surface, where they extend just beyond the rim. The colour palette is one of simple, well-judged contrasts between light and dark – dramatically, where the fins are set against Dark Veneer; and gently, where they span Pale Veneer. Caption More
