ARCHITECTURE


ABOUT

US


PHILOSOPHY SAME MENTAL JOURNEY AT THE DIFFERENT SCALES OF THE PROJECT: -Analysis of the context (environment, building, theme…) -Identification of the features (flows, density, relations…) -Interiorization of the suggestions (from the nature, from the art, from the objects…) -Synthesis process filtered through our personal sensitivity -Externalization of the project idea -Work planning: reply to contemporary questions and anticipate future needs


THE ITALIAN WAY Attention to the context. Respect for the “Genius Loci� Genius Loci: In the Roman religion they are natural and supernatural entities linked to a place, now in architecture it means the whole of the socio-cultural, architectural and natural features and identifies the nature of a place, a city, an area


Sense of the proportion. The right size.


Sense of the whole, choral idea of city


Sustainability. Energy efficiency. Green architecture.


High tech with natural materials. Tech+craft.
