Lamminrahka School Center
Finland
In collaboration with Lindroos Architects
Competition 2019

 

A school center, landmark and meeting place in the new Lamminrahka district. The main volume of the building houses the lobby, restaurant and public areas and is located in the main square of the city creating a landmark within the new urban landscape. The school activities are organized in a staggered manner, adapting to the avenue, breaking the volumetry to a scale in accordance with the surroundings and creating a variety of interstitial outdoor spaces that house the different activities of the school. The organization allows for a large green space to the south that links to the municipal sports facilities.

 

RED, Bookshop & Bistro
Corso Garibaldi, Milan, Italy
In collaboration with Obelo, Teresa Meana & Marianna Merisi
Completed 2018

RED concept integrates the tradition of the Feltrinelli bookshops with Italian culinary tradition, generating a new cultural space. Two old housing buildings in Corso Garibaldi were linked for the new RED: a sequence of small spaces in two levels, originally designed for domestic use. A new axis is opened connecting the street with three patios, generating light and spaces that combine the new public scale with the domestic atmosphere of the actual building. The old materials and the new steel reinforcements are left “as found” revealing the history of the place.

Vitra Pelota, temporary exhibition
Salone del Mobile 2018, Milan, Italy
Executive Architect
Completed 2018

The designer Robert Stadler, who curated and staged the exhibition, has created an expansive panorama of some 200 objects, drawing on the extensive Vitra archives to juxtapose current products with classics, prototypes, special editions and future visions. The show places a central focus on the social function of furniture in society.
The exhibition ‘Typecasting’ offers a new view of Vitra. In the spacious Pelota arena, a panoramic display of around 200 objects portrays the past, present and future of ‘Project Vitra’. Robert Stadler, who curated and designed the show, emphasizes the social role of furniture – and of chairs in particular – as a key theme. Along with their obvious practical use as seating, chairs have historically always had an additional representative function: the selection of a specific chair is also a personal act of image cultivation.

Feeniks Church
Ylivvieska, Finland
In collaboration with: Lindroos Architects, Studio Shafei & Pedrocchi Architects
Competition 2017

In 2016 the central church of Ylivieska, Finland, was destroyed in act of arson that levelled the 18th-century wooden structure into a pile of ash. The proposal uses the old church section drawing as a source of design, creating a new building from the remembrance and exploring the importance of memory in architecture. The new building serves the function of the former church while creating a contemporary structure that responds to its context in a new way that integrates the renewed ruins of the old temple.

 

 

RED, Bookshop & Bistro
City Life, Milan, Italy
In collaboration with Obelo & Teresa Meana
Completed 2017

RED concept integrates the tradition of the Feltrinelli bookshops with Italian culinary tradition, generating a new cultural space. The RED City Life stands in a new shopping mall close to the city centre of Milan. The challenge is to create a specific location within a generic place. A light wood structure defines the limit of the shop while the combination of the program is set on a chessboard layout that allows to combine and overlap both functions (bookshop and restaurant) while keeping an independent path for each one of them.

El Bosque de la Maga Colibrí, Bookshop
Gijón, Spain
In collaboration with Teresa Meana & Marilys Meana
Completed 2014

El Bosque de la Maga Colibrí is a reading promotion project that combines the sale of quality books with the enhancement of reading in all areas. After becoming a regional and state reference in their former location, they searched for a new location that would allow to span their activities and become a cultural meeting point for the city.
The project takes profit of the complexity of the existing furniture warehouse - a linear shop with three different entrances - creating areas that can be used together or independently. The teamwork with the client helped to generate program from spaces and spaces from programs.
The bookshop develops itself from a ramp/stair that solves accessibility, acts as a bookshelf and a reading stand. A large sliding door connects this first space with the workshops and the multifunctional space with its stage excavated on top of an existing parking ramp. The finishes are left white as an architectural background for the vivid figure of the books and activities.
