QUAND J’ÉTAIS CHANTEUR
ARCHITECTS VERSUS CLIENT
[…] Hiss: “Sire, sire, they may be bandits.”
Prince John: “Oh, poppycock. Female bandits? What next? Rubbish. Um, um, my dear ladies, you have my permission to kiss the royal hands. Whichever you like, first.” […]
“Quand j’étais chanteur”, or in the Italian version title “A Modo Mio”, tales about a dreadful war. At the very beginning, (the images are about the conceptual part of the project) we won some battles, but, during the construction phase, we started to lose every single duel and, sincerely we don’t have the stomach for displaying the final outcome. This a metaphor on how much is complicated facing a project when you don’t have enough influence on your client. For us, it’s a “quasi manifesto” to take in mind. Anyway, this project was about the restoration of a ruined building immersed in the peace of Marche’s countryside. We’ve chosen a traditional asset for the roofs and for the interior, but we studied some details to get the elevation free from gutters and tubes. Besides, we ubicated the entry in a glass volume in a way that you can feel the nature from inside and outside. The aim was to design a traditional asset with a more contemporary clean for the details.
