COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT – QUARTO, GENOA, ITALY
Subject: Mastreplan, Concept and Detail Architecture design
Size: 3,000 sqm project area
The design includes two commercial buildings with underground car parks which, standing on both sides of the streets, become a ‘gate’ or a anchor point for the local urban context.
The architecture typology combines transparent glazed facades with opaque colored walls, reflecting two key elements of the context: the presence of numerous heritage villas with colored facades, and of glazed ‘greenhouse’ buildings.
Therefore the two constructions provide a contemporary image with reference to the local constructive tradition.
