Being at the center of a place can imply that we have our own autonomy but also highlight an identity that is capable of interacting with the context.
A simple form that offers a vertical stratification where the base is transparent and active.
A sequence that creates a perception between interior and exterior landscape.
A rhythm that offers a landscape within the landscape.
An urban facade that runs down the Boulevard and slowly opens up onto a small and inviting internal courtyard, with convivial spaces and a garden.
Rhythm and sequence become the structure of the project, floor by floor, facade by facade; creating a dialogue with light but also with the vertical concrete elements that make the volume unitary, while respecting the will of the building to rely on its glazed base.
A unitary and simple building, whose difference is expressed through each facade, each perspective, thanks to a continuous dialog with the context.
To redefine the identity of a place in order to restore its value.
