THE NEW MONDELLO WATERFRONT IN PALERMO, ITALY

Un progetto per il waterfront di Mondello, Palermo
The international competition for the new waterfront of the Mondello area, next to Palermo in Italy, was an extremely intersting theme for us. The Municipality wanted to rebuilt this part of the Sicilian coast: one of the most beautiful in the world. The fact was that previous interventions, held without an organic point of view, had left a weak central Piazza and a walkway along the beach absolutely inadequate. So we decided to act with courage, designing a brand new porticate able to create a new Piazza, in wich the sea could penetrate to be part of the scene. The regular porch can give the square a deep sense of Piazza and can be considered as the end, or the beginning, of the extraordinary walkway that starts from there... click here to see the project

 

Reportage from China, an article by Roberto Silvestri

We show you an article published in the Chinese magazine <Space> some months ago. In it, Roberto Silvestri analizes some aspects of Beijing architecture and spaces from a peculiar point of view, starting from the last visits to the Chinese capital due to conferences and exhibitions that Silvestri Architettura had in that city.

It is an interesting article, and we suggest to you to read it, to know something more of this extremely interesting and huge (but at the same time "small" as you will understand during the lecture...) city under an extraordinary evolution.

Understanding Beijing architecture

Beijing is a “small” city. This could seem a nonsense, but I am sure about it: Beijing is a “small” city! I understood this, after a few steps on Chinese ground, the first time I was there. Despite of its millions of inhabitants and its oceanic surface, I felt like being in a comfortable place, a city that would have never overwhelmed me...

A home in Valle D'aosta, Italy

A Home in Valle D'Aosta

A few weeks ago was finished the construction of this home that we designed in a beautiful mountain village of Valle D'Aosta, in Italy. It is an extremely comfortable building, that follows local tradition in order not to create any contrast with the existing village and to give the inhabitants the opportunity to spend some time away from the city, in a place thought e designed in harmony with the landscape.

Dynamic spaces for a dynamic company.

BM SpA headquarters in MilanBM SpA headquarters in Milan

Bm Spa is an italian dynamic company that is quickly growing up in the international market. They asked us to design the new interior spaces of its headquarters in order to adeguate them to the new perspectives of the society. We made contemporary spaces that still have a strong functional structure but at the same time are able to comunicate to employes and visitors the innovative impulse.

A new Hospital for Sicily, Italy

It will be realized in Palermo, in the hearth of Mediterranean Sea, the new Hospital that we are designing. It will be divided into three buildings linked each other by pedestrian walkways and bridges that will give the whole complex an extremely functional advantage. The facades will be finished in copper, a wonderful material that changes its colour with time and that in a few years (since we are close to the sea) will assume a colour that will perfectly match with the beautiful green area that will surround the hospital. The functional structure of the complex has been designed with two aims. The first one was to have interior spaces that could be a real help for people working inside, so they will be extremely precise for the function they will be used for and, at the same time, they will be pleasant spaces to work inside. The second aim, has been to realize spaces that could be comfortable for patients and their relatives or friends. For this scope, we have worked deeply trying to design rooms that could be extremely warm and comfortable, places that looked like home spaces instead of traditional hospital spaces.
