Umm Ghuwailina Station | Doha Metro, Qatar. 2015-2016

AXD Studio di Architettura – Milan

The Doha Metro is a planned rapid transit system in Qatar’s capital city that is scheduled to become operational by the end of 2019. It will have four lines with an approximate overall length of 300 km and 100 stations. It will be an integral component of the larger Qatar Rail network, which will include a long-distance rail for passengers and freight, linking Qatar to the GCC, and Lusail’s city local light rail transit (LRT). The Doha Metro will ultimately consist of four lines opening in phases beginning in 2019 with an eventual completion date of 2026. The Red, Green and Gold Lines will radiate out from a central interchange at Msheireb in Downtown Doha, with the Blue Line providing a semi-orbital service.

Polihousing | Social Housing and facilities project in Città Studi, Milan. 2015 (thesis).

Team: Denis Džambić, Veronica Merenda POLIHOUSING project is a consequence of Federlegno S.r.l. Competition Announcement published in 2012. The competition, within the comprehensive “Città Studi – Campus Sostenibile” project, was about Social Housing and social facilities responding to the need of temporary housing in the “Comune di Milano” area. POLIHOUSING project is not only addressed to lower social class people. Instead, it is focused on “city-users”, such as professionals, visiting professors, University researchers, etc., that usually live temporarily in the city and need of specific facilities. Therefore, the project is aimed to meet users specific requirements, such as places for co-working, for leisure and entertainment, and in particular it is aimed to create synergy between residential and service places, in order to connect individual and collective spaces and promote social relationships. According to this, the project shows two temporary accommodation buildings discerned for short and long staying, a leisure-study-café building where people, such as resident users and University workers, can meet and a nursery house for their babies.

(De)concentration | New facilities for cycle-track Vigorelli, Milan. 2013

Team: Denis Džambić, Ramiro Löfvall, Stefano Santamato

Vigorelli is a building made for a specific intent: to be a cycle-track. In compliance with the competition request, the purpose was to project spaces for contemporary music. The project leans on Vigorelli as a new architecture in opposition with the exsistent buinding. The project realization is made to be reversible and non destructive. We made a roofing to isolate the Vigorelli’s central part, in order to create spaces for contemporary music such as museums, technological experimentation areas and perfomance spaces. This building wasn’t meant to be temporary nor a permanent one, it is only a transition in the history of Vigorelli.

Ex-Innocenti | Requalification of an ex industrial area, Milan. 2012

Team: Giuseppe Ceci, Denis DĹžambic, Olimpia Rangoni Macchiavelli, Maria Ave Romani, Stefano Santamato The purpose of the project was the requalification of an ex industrial area near Lambro river (the east of Milan). The critical points were the presence of an industrial building to requalificate and to reuse, besides to consider the possibility of the Lambro river flooding. The industrial building has been designed to accommodate public spaces, film studios and the cinema museum and to be employed like a barrier against river flooding. A residential area has been designed at the back of the industrial building. This residential buildings have been built around a linear park that serves as an emergency drainage area in case of an eventual river flooding. So that all the buildings can be protected against alluvions and some damages and people can live and take advantage of this area in complete safety.

Team: Denis Džambić, Benedetta Omarchi, Sara Provini

The plot is in Cornigliano, nearby Genoa, in an industrial site. The project arises from the necessity of keep the industrial function of this area, but considered in a new different way. The theme chosen is a centre for hydraulic and shipbuilding research. This decision has been made after the analysis of the site, located nearby Fincantieri, one of the most important industry for shipbuilding, and the Scientific Park Erzelli. All the research centre is located inside a park with a system of different public spaces, where the key elements are the presence of the water, the differentiation of the program and the human scale.

Theatre | A theatre for Creativity, Bollate. 2009

Team: Clara Caldonazzi, Francesca Corti, Denis Džambić, Benedetta Omarchi, Martino Pasqua, Sara Zangari

The plot is an old factory nearby Milan, a place that nowadays is an art gallery for young artists. The theme of the project is to use part of the factory and the garden for an experimental theatre. The project is based on the willingness to recreate the original and immediate relationship between the actors and the audience, of the Greek theatre. The Cavea is embracing the orchestra with an organic curve, for exalting the community dimension of the theatre’s experience. One of the most particular element is the stage, that is located on many flying bridges, linked to the orchestra whit a spiral ramp.
