F House

F-House was commissioned to add a design-driven accessory dwelling unit to a home in LA’s Melrose District. The unit was intended to combine parking with additional family space, while also re-conceiving the home’s outdoor areas. Taking into account the brief as well as some challenging privacy issues, we proposed a very simple building “clad” in hanging vines, which would act as both a sun screen as well as a moveable object, interacting with doors and windows to create a variety of impressions and layered indoor and outdoor spaces.

DROPS

The Future is the place where we project all our dreams. Often books, movies, stories and fairy tales portrait the future as an utopian fantasy, where everything is beautiful and we can all live peacefully together. Is it possible to envision today the World of Tomorrow? Is it possible to take people into an oneiric dream?   DROPS is an art installation, made of luminescent glazed drops scattered on Caorle's cliff that absorb the light during the day and release it at night transforming a the defence tidal system into a social and artistic infrastructure. A composition of colored drops recall the imprint left by the waves. During the day the installation looks like a mosaic, as a reminiscence of the nearby Venetian tessellations, and... More

Albanian Carpet

Project nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Prize 2021   Shiroka is a fishing village located on the shores of Shkodra Lake, near the border with Montenegro. Its inhabitants lived for centuries from the lake, men fishing with small rowboats and women tending orchards and weaving carpets by hand. The reaction to the end of a communist regime that had deprived citizens of living from traditional “private” activities was widespread mistrust in the public sphere, which led to a period characterized by uncontrolled occupation and privatization of public space. As result, the public space of the waterfront of Shkodra lake was occupied with illegal constructions such as private houses, restaurants, private parking areas, and kio... More

Navigable promenade

The island of the sun is located on Lake Titicaca, considered thehighest lake in the world. This island presents great elevation changes in which spaces with different environments and views originate in which the breadth of the lake can be observed. This place is considered a sanctuary dedicated to the God of the Sun. Throughout the island there are some trails that run from north to south through its places, ruins, viewpoints and towns that end at the lowest levels, bordering the shores of the lake. The intervention proposes an extension of these paths, a walk that enters the lake, as if it were the lake itself. The sacred space is incorporated into the lake, integrating into the pre-existing language. The traces of air, water and ligh... More
