This four-storey residential building is designed as a “compact block” divided into two equal parts and then shifted along the minor axis. In this way we created the space for vertical connection, where the condominium staircase was placed. The finishing of the steps is designed in red resin, an architectural detail standing out from the completely white building. The volume of the staircase is cut with long vertical and narrow glass window on the side of the main facade, which represents our tribute to the architect Moretti. The natural illumination as well as the fluid dynamics were carefully studied for this project.


Another characterizing element of this building is the roof – a continuous beam that develops wrapped in an organic and rational manner along the entire perimeter of the building. The pecularity of this project lies in the details of the structural elements that in turn enhance the architectural style of the building. Quoting Pier Luigi Nervi we can define it as a project “full of good structural acrobatics”.
