The challenge method arises from a double dedication: the need to present a technical response to a particular context (wants program, price range, rules, surroundings…) and the need to hunt magnificence by the constructed work. This course of pursues the satisfaction, understood in its most full sense, of all those that actively take part in growth. Particularly prospects and customers, but in addition collaborators, builders, and designers.
Within the skilled trajectory, very numerous forms of development are collected. There are new works, rehabilitations, reforms, block housing, and public constructing… Work carried out with excessive budgets and others with diminished budgets, however in all circumstances, nice consideration has been paid to the financial system, with out waste. Structure might be small within the large or large within the small if every fee is known as a chance to materialize challenge.
One other attribute of the method is steady. Continuity with an surroundings that we should respect, spatial continuity, using few supplies, the mixing of services, lighting… These are widespread components within the work carried out. And likewise the seek for continuity in time, valuing the structure that’s able to going by it with out turning into out of date.
Using innovation is emphasised. New supplies, and new applied sciences, enhance individuals’s lives. An innovation primarily based on expertise and the development of custom.
Precision is likely one of the keys to the work system. It requires concentrated and attentive exercise all through all the course of, which works from the preliminary thought, by the drafting of the challenge, to its materialization. The development, the furnishings, the upkeep…
Dialogue is all the time current for the reason that work turns into a part of the id of those that inhabit it. The home and the workspace are a real reflection of those that dwell or work there, an unequivocal expression of their persona or their company tradition.
This dialogue seeks consolation and utility, analyzing the conflicts and joys of the every day acts of human life, which outline structure. The response given to those ideas characterizes the tasks making every one completely different.
And eventually, the workforce. Excellence in design is predicated on the mixing of a community of execs who share the pleasure of their work. A workforce made up of specialists within the calculation of buildings, acoustics, installations, graphic design, inside design, structure… that produces an environment of shared creativity able to producing contagious motivation, taking good care of what’s in course of, and enthusiastic about what’s to come back.
We just like the advantage of structure which makes it doable to assemble a home on air and stroll on water. An abrupt plot of land overlooking the ocean, the place what’s greatest is to do nothing. It invitations you to remain. A bit that respects the land’s pure contour is ready in it.
Above, a shadow, the home itself, trying calmly on the Mediterranean. Beneath the solar, the swimming pool brings us nearer to the ocean, it turns into a quiet cove. Within the inflection level, the stairway proposes an evocative path and a backyard within the basement.
Because of the steepness of the plot and the need to include the home in only one degree, a three-dimensional construction of strengthened concrete slabs and screens adapting to the plot’s topography was chosen, thus minimizing the earthwork. This monolithic, stone-anchored construction generates a horizontal platform from the accessing degree, the place the home itself is positioned.
The swimming pool is positioned on a decrease degree, on an already flat space of the location. The concrete construction is insulated from the surface after which coated by a versatile and clean white lime stucco. The remainder of the supplies, partitions, pavements, and the gravel on the roof… all preserve the identical colour, respecting the standard structure of the realm, emphasizing it and concurrently underlining the unity of the home.
