We are open to receive projects from all around the world, regardless of their dimension or typology. Please send us high quality photos (indicating their authors), drawings and descriptive texts in English to our Marketing e-mail - It will be our pleasure to help spreading new Architecture concepts and ideas.

"Conceiving a house ― a program.
The very first concern is simple and natural: a house that looks like a house.
Basic shapes.
Concrete as the main material.
Time as an ally.
By analogy, emulation and filtration, the elements emerge: roof, windows, chimney, porch, balcony, railings.
Apparent opacity.
Strong, unexpected interior/exterior contrast.
Acceptance of the effects of exposed materials: oxidation, erosion, wet/dry contrast."
