30

The house designed by Matteo Casari Architetti was built on a small lot within a an extension of residential area Urgnano.

Forum Limbach – House on the House // Looping Architecture

16

Old farm houses tell stories, style and choice of material disclose what was erected when and for what purpose. In Limbach, a farmyard was expanded by an architecturally exciting chapter; the annex serves as a discussion forum and venue. On top sits the upper storey as “house on the house” with the principal’s private rooms. The new building, fitted into the historically grown farmyard structure, closes the rural square edifice and at the same time opens up the previously enclosed inner yard. This apparently contradictory double function is made possible by the building’s clever horizontal bisection.

Object 12-1 is an end-product of university experiment in the multiplication of material which Matija Čop performed as a student of fashion design with the help of mentor Jasminka Končić. In the production of this piece of clothing, a contemporary material is used whose original qualities were preserved to the same degree to which the qualities of the stone used for the construction of the cathedral were preserved. The material feels like EVA or rock when you touch it, but its original look is completely changed.

Splash Laudromat in Barcelona // Frederic Perers

Interior designer Frederic Perers and graphic designer Gemma Alberich have selected steel as the vertical surface element in the area of washing machines and dryers, which disappear under it. The orange tone, everywhere, reflects in the steel and serves as a warm counter element to the coldness of the metal. The remaining areas are treated with neutral elements: shiny white tiles – commonly used in spaces with water, light coloured floor and a false ceiling made with black vertical plates.
