Naples: future and past

Ultra-modern eyewear in a historical building: the project by PiùStore for the restyling of Ottica Tullino

 

The project by PiùStore for Ottica Tullino in Naples comes from the need to update the image of an existing point of sale, creating a more modern space in line with the store’s clientele target, in search of exclusive eyewear with a futuristic or vintage look, from remarkable limited-edition collections.

The store is located in Chiaia in a period building, where Via Cavallerizza becomes very narrow. It has just 20 square meters of sales area on the ground floor, and 20 for a loft that is used as a storeroom.

The restyling by store designer Adriana Genro came to grips first of all with the exterior: the new shopfront, a custom creation in iron, takes its cue from traditional English call boxes. Inside, the first decision was to eliminate the plasterboard divider to create a more open space, while making an hole in the slab of the loft to permit communication between the two levels.

All the plasterboard facings have been removed. The structural walls of the building now display their original surfaces: layers of old bricks alternating with local volcanic stone. The plasterboard ceiling has also been scrapped, revealing the metal joists.

Future and past join forces to create a trend-setting atmosphere that enhances the products selected for an exclusive clientele.

To separate spaces

Hi-Macs brings a new look to the residential complex Artillery Mansions in London

 

The ways of living in the home have changed over the years, as have our modes of interaction with the individual rooms; in renovation projects, in fact, altering the layout of the various spaces is often a priority.

This is what has happened at Artillery Mansions, the residences built in the 1990s in the southwestern part of London and renovated thanks to a project by FORMstudio.

The design studio, in collaboration with the partner Mike Neale, has chosen Hi-Macs in the Alpine White shade to create a fundamental feature for the definition and separation of spaces: a central block that conceals a practical home office, with a desk and shelves in solid surface and built-in LED lighting.

Glicine Room

Gibus pergolas for the outdoor zone of the first international gastronomy hub

 

In the center of Milan, near Piazza della Scala and the fashion district, in a city that conserves, innovates, produces and invents, there is a new destination, unique on the international scene: Identità Golose Milano.

At Via Romagnosi 3, which for half a century contained Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, Identità Golose is the result of the vision and experience of its founders, Paolo Marchi and Claudio Ceroni.

Its spaces include the Glicine Room, a tasting area for about 50 guests sheltered by a splendid old wisteria, as a natural extension of the restaurant area facing the luminous open courtyard. This is the site of the Gibus Stanza del Sole created with the installation of four Med Twist bioclimatic pergolas. The Glisse sliding glass doors complete the project with a tribute to the typical Milanese internal gardens, shielding diners from the wind and the cold.

Thovez11: Reviving Turin

In the elegance of the Crimea zone, an innovative real estate project

The building that for over a century was the home of the Institute of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart, and then became the Lycée Français, now becomes Thovez11, a project of residential renovation that becomes a model that brings out the value of historical heritage and innovation.

In the Crimea zone near the city center, immersed in an age-old park, the building has been renovated and transformed, conserving the forms of the original architecture. One of the values of Thovez11 lies in this safeguarding of existing features: the transformation of the old school as a contemporary residential complex complies with complete respect for the environment and nature, using already existing land and avoiding the consumption of the area, in contrast with the present alarming trend towards unlimited cementification.

The Thovez11 project balances a range of different factors: the architecture fits into the environmental context, utilizing advanced physical plant technologies like geothermics, materials of the latest generation, and avant-garde solutions to provide high levels of comfort while reducing management costs, boosting ecocompatibility and reducing energy consumption.
