CONDOMINIO MONTI Botique hotel in Rome

Type: Renovation Location: Hotel Apollo, Via dei Serpenti 110, Rome, Italy Surface: 600 m2 Amount of work: 700 000 Euro The project is on a hotel in the heart of Rome, within walking distance of Colosseum. This is not a simple renovation, but a total redesign of the old building, which aims to rethink it as a new boutique hotel, where guests can feel at home and have a pleasant stay together with other guests. The project combines all architectural issues, starting from the concept, the atmosphere that the hotel will communicate, continuing with the architectural design of the reception, rooms, breakfast hall/terrace, and going into detail of the drawings of the desks and wardrobes for the rooms and of the desk and benches for the reception. When the work will be finished, the old Hotel Apollo will change name to Condominio Monti, a new fancy modern hotel, also thanks to the collaboration with world-class companies like PS Lab for illumination and Ex-t for the bathroom furnitures.

THE EYE OF THE UPLANDS A rehabilitation for Cima Vezzena Fort Final thesis Supervisor: Prof. Arch. Francesco Collotti Soon published in Paesaggi Forificati Cima Vezzena Fort was built by Austro-Hungarian Empire on the border between the Province of Vicenza and the meridional Tyrol (now Italy) some years before or at the same moment of the First World War. Thanks to its high position, the enemy’s movements could have been seen in the uplands of Vezzena, Lavarone and Valsugana and it could be possible to communicate to the other imperial fortress by a telegraphic optical system. The aim of the project is to “explain� the history of the place, however communicate also the deep meaning of a simple series of events. Indeed, it has to speak about the cruelty and meaningless of the war of all times, everywhere and by whoever it was fought, without the celebratory approach of national propaganda pride that is often assigned to the memorials. For this purpose, a merely rebuilding approach has been avoided. An attempt is made to bring the visitor to the history, rather than the history to the visitor, through a series of interventions that aim to fully involve everyone who enters in the atmosphere of the fort which characterizes the place in the very moment of its activity. Hence, this allows the visitor to exit from the role of contemporary person and take the one of a soldier from the early 1900s and dive into an experience of strong contrasts. Earth and sky, full and empty, beauty and bitterness, past and present, are the elements that highlight the path for the visitor. Starting from the entrance placed on the northern side of the fort and following ideally the footprints of the soldiers, it is possible to walk through the succession of the spaces as they were designed to the military functions and the everyday life in the fort. On one hand, the thesis follows with the focused interventions of rehabilitation of the most relevant elements necessary to the comprehension of the war machine. On the other hands, it tries to preserve everything that can suggest the pain that the soldiers felt. The wounds of the structure, due to the bombing and to the sabotage actions, are the first signs that allow to understand the dramatic nature of the place and of the events that had hit it, and therefore will be left visible. The new installations will be realized with metal, as if the aim was to give the material removed from the structure back to the fort. However, they will be repainted red in order to make immediately discernible the new elements from the original ones. 24

BELGRADE CULTURAL CENTRE The project was published in: F.Collotti, M.R. Blagojevic, Firenze-Beograd-Firenze, Università degli studi di Firenze, 2015 ISBN: 978-8-896-08035-1

Over the centuries, Belgrade has been destroyed and rebuilt several times because of the many wars that have overwhelmed it. Some wounds are still evident in the urban fabric of the city, like the void in the Kosancicev Venac district. Once here the Serbian National Library was destroyed by the Nazi’s bombing in 1941, of which today remains only the brick perimeter walls and a burnt book. Once the war ended, when Serbian people tried to rebuild the building, during the excavations the ruins of a Roman villa surfaced a few meters below the foundations of the old library; The construction was interrupted and then the area remained in a state of abandonment, still waiting for an intervention enhancing a such dense site with history. The aim of our architectural project is to give back to this place the symbol heart of Serbian culture, once considered by the National Library. The intervention, therefore, wants to represent a ransom, a reaction against Hitler’s attempt in subjecting the peoples alleged through the violent annihilation of cultures other than the Nazi’s one. For this purpose the architectural project follows not just a conservative logic, but proposes a new building, which leans on what remains of the library wall perimeter, tracing part of the original volume. Here a new cultural centre will be built, with a museum and a study room. The structure is located around a central void, in the centre of which is placed an old typographic machine of the ‘900. From the basement floor it is possible to go down through an external staircase at the level of the Roman excavations. A footbridge leads to a small wooden theatre leaning on the Roman ruins, while concrete arches are the backdrop. 38

The project area is the ex Banci factory in Prato, near Florence. The textile industrial plant was composed by four buildings, surrounded by a big public park. The project proposes a transformation of the two major buildings into the new Tuscany Design Hub and a Cineporto. The master plan maintains the original set-up of the old factory, giving a more symmetrical disposition to the complex with some addition. In the center of the area, the intervention involves a big square, that should be used for public events. The linear composition of the project refers to the historic function of the factory plant, the textile production. The building converted into the Tuscany Design Hub maintains the original volume, while the interior changes aspect, inspired by the shapes of a canyon, with their high rocks that sorround the river. Then, inside the building we find some two-storey “blocks� with different dimensions and functions. On the ground floor they are linked by a central curvy way, while on the first floor, the blocks reduce their dimensions and a sinuous walkway connects them, minimising the number of stairs and lifts. The structure uses steel trusses 30 meters long, the facade are made of polycarbonate while the blocks are covered by wood panels.

WOLFSBURG URBAN REGENERATION Social Housing The aim of the project is to redesign the area in front of the huge Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, now occupied by a enormous parking lot for the workers, two kilometres long. The intervention transforms it into an urban park, in which we find two multi-storey car parks. A part of the park will be used for the construction of new apartments, which will use the Cross Laminated Timber (X-LAM) as construction system. On the lower floor we find the cellars and the common areas, while on the upper floors there are the housing units. The apartments overlooking the street are served by a gallery and shielded by noise with a perforated plate, which will be painted with murals. The residential units in the center of the complex are served by independent stairs and are double-furnished. Apartments, park and factory are connected by a pre-existing tunnel, which serves the employees to reach the work place passing under the river.
