La kagu
Tokyo, Japan

Kagurazaka is one of the few districts in Tokyo that best retains historic townscape. The project was a renovation of a big warehouse of books located on top of Kagurazaka hill, for which we created a public space like a ground, together with a café and a shop. We opened the house toward the street, and connected its first floor with the crossing using an organic-shaped wooden staircase, which expands just like earth. The stairs diverge in the middle, and one leads up to the second floor. We connected the town and the warehouse, the ground and the architecture, the past and the present.

Artemisia Gentileschi
Milano, Italy

Una nube di fogli danza leggera sopra il nostro sguardo. Sui fogli parole scritte a mano e nell’aria il suono di una voce. Un grande letto occupa il centro della stanza. Sopra il letto le parole si animano, si colorano e si sciolgono sino a gocciolare sulle lenzuola bianche tingendole di rosso. Ascoltando la voce veniamo colpiti dalla potenza della scena che queste parole descrivono: l’attrice e regista Emma Dante legge un passo degli atti del processo per stupro di cui è stata protagonista la pittrice Artemisia Gentileschi. L’installazione video apre la mostra allestita a Palazzo Reale di Milano e dedicata alla pittura e alla figura di un’importante pittrice protagonista del Seicento europeo.

Swimming pool
Bagneux, France

The purpose of our project, in an urban redevelopment area, is to transform the building’s image. The refurbishment and extension form a harmonious mineral body. The extension is in light grey concrete, and the original building, with external insulation, is faced with cement in the same shade. This minerality is continued through to the hall floor, in Lucerne quartzite laid as opus incertum.

Our design approach takes advantage of the existing site topography, orientation and mature planting to utilize the natural daylight, minimize the impact of direct sunlight, reduce the visual impact to the surrounding area and create beautifully framed views of the ever changing gardens and sky. The clients wanted the buildings to be experienced as part of the journey through the gardens.

Green House
Melbourne, Australia

Alterations and additions to a small heritage listed timber cottage in inner suburban Melbourne. Planning and heritage requirements and construction costs fundamentally drove the outcome of this project. Our client came to us wanting a new house. For reasons only known and understood by the local authorities the existing cottage was deemed to be of some historical significance. We disagreed with that assessment but to no avail. It was a case of limp-wristed facadism by the authorities and heritage ‘experts’. Instead of abandoning our client we agreed to start from scratch, keeping the front section of the cottage and reworking it and then building a discrete fully new section at the rear of the block.

One of the challenges that faced the studio was the realization of the project in a short time. Designers managed to complete it within only two months. During this period construction works were carried out, engineering networks and communications were established, and finishing works and decoration were implemented.

La idea surge cuando construimos Cafe Cinco (www.cafe5.com.mx) donde nos vimos en la necesidad de adecuar un baño muy económico para los usuarios. En nuestra búsqueda de soluciones, encontramos el trabajo del arquitecto Andreas Strauss que en el 2006 recicló tubos de concreto para adecuar habitaciones en un hotel. Conseguimos reciclar un tubo de 2.44m de diámetro por 3.50m de largo y al hacer nuestro baño nuestro cliente decidió hacer un Hotel con las mismas características que Desparkhotel.
