HOTEL DEI CAVALIERI INTERIOR REFURBISHMENT
The design of the main lobby at the ground floor gives great attention to the choice of materials, textures, and details. All the finishes join the historical elements, such as the wooden staircase and boiserie, to remind of the powerful timeless elegance of Milanese Art Deco. For the breakfast hall, white is chosen for walls and ceiling to enhance natural lighting. The combination of the existing onyx columns, new gypsum frame, and wooden flooring gives a bright and stylish atmosphere overall. Elegant decorative patterns, precious materials, and black and white upholstered furnishings combine to give the restaurant a contemporary language in line with the Milanese lifestyle.

the fourth side. A low construction hides the car park access ramp. A long narrow glass building contains the new distribution system thereby resolving the complex connections between the various functions. Finally, a translucent volume contains sports facilities, swimming pool and a sizable gym, which hosts official basketball and volleyball games. One singular element, the independent entrance to the new sport complex that opens onto Via Settembrini for the public, formally externalizes this radical transformation. The partial transformation of a low volume, located to one side of the lot, led to the realization of the schoolâ€™s assembly hall, which takes the place of the present day school gym.
COMPLEX REDEVELOPMENT OF ONE OF THE OLDEST PRIVATE SCHOOLS IN MILAN TO PROVIDE STATE-OF-THE-FACILITIES FOR STAFF AND STUDENTS. The Gonzaga Institute, one of the oldest private schools in Milan, from its foundation in 1906, has always considered the needs of the students and times. The school structure has evolved over the years, acquiring new spaces for learning activities and sports. It is in this context that the design of the new wing inserts itself. Recently completed, the school now offers a new sports center and conference hall, large outdoor spaces, and a multi-story car park. The facilities are open to students and the city at large. The courtyard is the heart of the school, the neuralgic center, both physically and functional wise, around which revolves the scholastic organism.

EXPO PAVILLION DUBAI 2020
PROJECT THAT REFLECTS ON THE ITALINA NATURALNESS THAT CAN BE CONSIDERED AS A UNIQUE EXAMPLE IN THE WORLD OF CULTURAL AND CREATIVE BIODIVERSITY, A LIVING LABORATORY FOR A SUSTAINABLE EVOLUTION OF SPECIES. The wonders of the Italian landscape constitute the very shape of the pavilion, starting from its envelope: a large garden / landscape that can be crossed in which we encounter thematic stories and services in an immersive experience, while productive, inventive, cultural and technological activities make it up the framework, the internal structure, the schedule: a great scenic machine in constant motion. The Italian Pavilion for Expo Dubai 2020 interprets the idea of the garden as a place of openness and exchange, aimed at telling a productive, active, open, progressive and pluralist Italy where nature and technology are continuously intertwined: our technology is founded on our relationship with the territory and our future.
