Project • By Leonardo MarchesiTemples


Luxor is a modern city built on the foundations of Thebes, the ancient Egyptian capital of the New Kingdom. The whole city was built on the east bank of the Nile, where the pharaohs decided at some point to build a gigantic temple complex dedicated to Amun. Caption The site was always under the construction eyes of the pharaohs, since the pharaohs use to build their homes in brick, (stone was dedicated to temples and tombs), thus not much has been left of ancient royal palaces. Caption The House in Luxor sits on an island, isolated from the noise of the city and aim to reverse the housing construction tradition; a house built with gigantic blocks of stone secured in place by gravity alone.

Adaptive Reuse: Repurposing Silos

In the 1850s, Chicago was considered the grain capital of the world. The mill and silo buildings, located primarily within the Fulton Market neighborhoods, are a direct reflection of Chicago’s wheat industry heritage, one of the major industries upon which the city was built. In recent years, as Fulton Market has become more trendy with the opening of new bars, restaurants, residences and offices, many of the protected historic buildings have been renovated. Unprotected historic buildings beyond the district boundaries, however, are routinely threatened with demolition. One such example was a 250,000-square-foot mill factory, which spanned a 2.2-acre site and included a series of brick loft buildings ranging from three to six stories... More

Tianjin CTF Finance Centre

The design for the Tianjin Chow Tai Fook Binhai Centre uses undulating curves to subtly express three programmatic elements while presenting a bold monolithic expression on the skyline. The 530-meter-tall skyscraper will house offices, 300 service apartments, and a five-star, 350-room hotel. The tower will be a striking new landmark in the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA), located just outside Tianjin.The gently curving glass skin conceals eight sloping columns that lie behind the primary bends of the elevation and increase the structure’s stiffness in response to seismic concerns. Strategically placed, multistory wind vents combined with the tower's aerodynamic shape reduce vortex shedding, which in turn dramati... More

Asteré project / France

Porter Teleo designed the wallpaper pattern Kintsugi used in this project by Asteré.

A combination of geometric elements that express their personality through a reciprocal movement. A lamp combining technology and craftsmanship, that finds its maximum expression in the opaline white blown glass sphere. Manto thanks to its telescopic arm allows to move the diffuser in many positions creating a different lighting, design and atmosphere. Like all the pendant lamps and the ceiling lamps of Axolight, Manto can be use... More

Private apartments “Duet”

This apartment was projected by Vadim Matevosyants that has chosen a functional minimalist style for it. Natural materials and high quality furnitures characterize the interior design. The area of the apartment was limited – 60 sqm – so Vadim decided to create a unique space for the kitchen and the living room, keeping some divisions among them thanks to the supporting pylon. To further expand the space from a visual point of view and make the apartment less laconic, he has worked cleverly, together with Verdiz, with the materials, such as the wooden finishes of the furnitures, the use of ceiling-height doors and a palette of gray-brown shades.   When choosing the best lighting solution for the living room and the kitchen...

Private apartment / Yaroslavl

Anna Belousova and Irina Krotova have completely renovated this apartment in Yaroslavl. The starting point has been the reorganization of the spaces: uniting the kitchen with the living room to create an open space, the creation of a separated bathroom, and the expansion of the master bedroom, thanks to the elimination of two small dressing rooms.   For the decoration of all the walls of the apartment, the interior designers opted for different materials and wallpapers. In the master bedroom, the choice is a mixture of violaceous paint and a wallpaper that simulates the concrete texture. The overall interior design of the apartment follows the minimalist philosophy, and so it is also for the bedroom. In this sense, our pendant lamps... More

Private house / Ra'anana

The interior designer Shlomit Zeldman projected the renovation of this apartment in Ra’anana, Israel. The master bedroom is characterized by a minimalist style, emphasized by the neutral shades, with a warmer touch given by the wooden floor. An entire wall is dedicated to a built-in closet.   To illuminate the room, two pendant lamps Fedora descend from the ceiling over the night tables.
