Attico on the sky of Padua

location Padua / system Mogs 65 TB Steel e Alzante Scorrevole MLS72 TB
 

Material: painted galvanized steel
Designer: Studio Associato “A + S ARCHITETTURA” – Cattura (Pd)

This large, renovated attic, situated atop a 30m building, overlooks the historical quarter of the city and boasts a 360° view of the Alps and the Colli Euganei. It is a result of the demolition and reconstruction of an industrial brick structure that bore no relationship to the character of the city surrounding it, a city well-known for its historical importance. The central core, made of reinforced concrete, leads to a series of spaces that wend their way outwards, topped with a ceiling of continuous white surfaces which reach for the sky in line with the external terraces. The full-length windows play an essential role in the aesthetics of the building by allowing natural light to bathe the room and by amplifying the visual impact of the city skyline that wraps around the attic. The result is a continual and uninterrupted relationship between the inside and outside. The living area extends towards the monastery of Carmine and the whole attic brought to life with the reciprocal projection between the external environment and the concealed architectural spaces, defined by windows gazing over the panorama. The large windows were built using Mogs 65 profiles with a thermal break in painted steel. This gives the possibility of minimal partitions and offers great benefits in terms of thermal and acoustic performance.

Modena's Manifattura Tabacchi finds back its light

location Modena / system Mogs ISO70 TB
 

Material: painted galvanized steel
Designer: Arch. Tiziano Lugli - Modena

Regia Fabbrica di Tabacchi opened in 1851; it was enlarged at the end of the 20th century and subsequently modified even in the World War II post-war period. The designers were presented with an arduous task: to model areas for shops, living and commercial activities from an industrial complex. The result was a hit with the Modenese citizens who have been able to see their historic centre united with modern developments, such as the area close to the station. The use of trigeneration plants (combined cooling, heat and power) has provided a unique energy solution for historic Italian city centres, allowing the entire complex here to operate independently from the rest of the city by means of a central production unit in the old power station. The large, centred-arched windows are made from profiles in galvanized steel Mogs ISO 70 with a thermal break, which offer strength, a less intrusive visual impact and minimum maintenance requirements in addition to a noteworthy thermal and acoustic performance.

Masseria trapanà

location Apulia / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Designer: Arch. Raffaele Centonze

The approach to the project was to restore the magical atmosphere, imprisoned in the imposing walls, of this ancient masseria. Hence, a meticulous attention to the existing rural structure and to the original materials. The idea of building the architrave using old tuff blocks recovered on site, respects this careful attention. The choice of the FerroFinestra Mogs profiles allowed to respect the ancient aesthetic value of the farm, lending it at the same time high technical performance.

Memoriale Garibaldi, along the Caprera shore

location Caprera (Ot) / system Mogs 65 TB Steel
 

Material: painted galvanized steel
Designer: Pietro Carlo Pellegrini architetto – Lucca

Fort Arbuticci, built in the 19th century, housed defensive structures as part of the military armoury for the Maddalena islands. The Fort lies near to the humble dwelling where Giuseppe Garibaldi and his family spent the last twenty-six years of his life and from this rose the Memorial dedicated to the hero; not a traditional museum but a multimedia reconstruction of his eventful lifetime. In addition to viewing the displays of rare documents and collections on show in the four buildings, strung along a chronological narration from his youth in Nice to retirement in Caprera, the attention of the visitor is fluidly guided from the library to the specialized video-library, from the small projection room to the carefully crafted external spaces which can be adapted and arranged for themed events. The Mogs 65 thermal break system of doors and windows in painted steel fit perfectly with the military architecture of the Fort and the island’s marine environment.

Palazzo del Tergesteo in Trieste

location Trieste / system Facciate continue ISO TB
 

Material: painted galvanized steel and brushed stainless steel aisi 316
Designer: AT Studio Associato - Turin

This project concerns the renovation of Tergesteo Palace, located in Trieste historic centre. The complex was first designed by the architect Buttazzoni, and subsequently re-elaborated by Brujn. It was realized between 1840 and 1842, and is composed of four squares gathered around a cross-shaped glass gallery. The original roofing dated back to the mid-19th century, based on the design of the Milanese architect Pizzala, whose experience working on the De Cristoforis gallery in Milan served as a prototype for the construction of Tergesteo Palace. In 1957 the steel and glass roofing was demolished and replaced with a lower vault in glass brick, designed by the architect Psacaropulo. This in turn was later removed and substituted with a steel and glass construction based on the original 19th century design, which stands today as part of in the gallery’s current renovation as prescribed by the Superintendancy. The Mogs Vetroarmato ISO system employed for this noteworthy construction is a structure made of galvanized steel, particularly suited for use in inclined roofing and vertical facades.

Passiva Residence in Marostica

location Marostica (Vi) / system Mogs ISO70 TB
 

Material: painted galvanized steel
Designer: Arch. Giorgio Parise - Marostica (Vi)

The designer’s main aims were to achieve a harmonious architectural appearance through the re-elaboration of typical Venetian traits on a “passive” building whilst paying close attention to bioclimatic concepts and the production of clean alternative energy. A variety of elements have been included to achieve this end, such as a photovoltaic plant, a solar heating plant to produce clean hot water and heating, and a geothermic plant which replaces the need for a boiler. The simple rectangular outline pays homage to the rural structures typical of this area, but is partly contrasted by the north face where the striking stone wall, characteristic of this zone, fans out onto the pedestrian entrance. The door and window openings are scaled down on the north face in contrast to the wide glass walls on the south and west faces which stretch towards the surrounding views of the Prealps. The door and windows have thermal breaks, characterized by precision cutting, which enhance the pleasing architectural appearance whilst greatly limiting the energy dispersal.

Contemporary private residence in the Florence Middle Ages

location Florence / system Mogs 65 Steel
 

Material: painted galvanized steel
Designer: Arch. Guido Gorla

This exquisite medieval complex is overlooked by a tall 13th century tower which dominates the extensive park, surrounding fields and stretches of olive groves. The three internal courtyards are enhanced by expertly crafted works from previous restorations. Whilst using technological innovation to adapt and modernize (e.g. the addition of a slate and travertine pavement) these measures have kept the structure of the original building intact, including the walls in faced brick and the valuable stone arches. The generous windows and doors added during the last main restoration are built with the Mogs 65 steel system, tying in with the construction style through their low visual impact united with the strength and high functional performance of the material. The overall result is a harmonious marriage between historic architectural traditions and feats of modern technology.

Private Residence in Sardinia

location Sardinia / system Mogs 65 TB Inox
 

Material: polished steel mirror
Designer: Exclusiva Design – Roma

The villa, with its distinctive aesthetic, functional and quality features, overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea from the peak of a cape, in a perfect fusion of exquisite architectural elegance and natural beauty of the location, characterized by intense sunlight and by the Mediterranean breezes and perfumes. Spaces and functions have been the themes to which planners paid specific attention, choosing prestigious materials that have required proper time for designing, construction and installation. As regards windows and doors, the planners selected stainless steel, thanks to its features of long service life and its resistance to atmospheric agents, even near the sea. The use of very slender profiles, with a reduced section on view, used also for the creation of very wide openings, together with the mirror finish of the frames, gave windows and doors a really sophisticated look, as well as assuring a notable brightness to the interiors, which become one with the exterior.

Residence on the walls in Treviso

location Treviso / systems FerroFinestra W40 and Alzante Scorrrevole MLS72 TB
 

Material: hot-dip rolled steel / galvanized steel
Designer: Giovanni Battista Gianola (Tv)

A highly-esteemed designer has restored this loft apartment furnished with a large terrace which overlooks the historic town centre. The former wooden doors and windows have been replaced with metal-framed mirrored panes; the characteristics of the steel ensure safety and the structure grants a generous view outside. The overall style is coherent with the modern interior furnishing. The sliding doors in galvanized steel allow the room to be bathed in light and have been left purposefully ‘rough’ with visible welding. They are made using a ‘hidden’ system that allows them to blend seamlessly into the walls, acting as a transparent panel between the dining room, bedrooms and the large teak-paved terrace. The spacious orangerie, enclosed by 3 vertical walls and a horizontal cover – all glazed – emphasises the traditional English structure of slim profiles in hot-rolled steel.

Private Mansion in Sile Park

location Treviso / system Mogs 65 TB Cor-Ten
 

Material: Cor-Ten steel
Designer: ZAA zanonarchitettiassociati – Roncade (Tv)

This rustic dwelling, enveloped in the verdant countryside, has been given a new lease of life through this restoration project. The interior has been renovated and the daytime area enlarged through the addition of a new feature in glass and cor-ten steel with large windows that look out onto the surrounding landscape. Seen from outside the glass reflects the greenery and becomes one with the setting; once inside the glass seems to melt away giving the sense of a continuous expanse of space that melds into the scenery beyond. The architet has planned this volume with glass and Cor-Ten steel deeply oxidated in order to maintain the harmony with the rural characteristic of the site. Particular care was taken to maximise the energy containment and acoustic comfort of the building through the use of doors and windows realized with extra thick thermal insulated profiles and high performance glass, an inclusion that also benefits the passive safety of the wide glass wall.

A contemporary “box” in Mirano

location Mirano (Ve) / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Material: hot-dip rolled steel
Designer: Arch. Enzo Berti - Mirano (Ve)

The redevelopment and salvage of Spazio Silos represents a new interpretation of industrial architecture and upholds their cultural value. The building is composed of two silos built in the 1940s for a longstanding furniture company. The recent restoration has made use of innovative construction systems to create complex avant-garde technology that is in line with the demands of energy efficiency and biocompatibility whilst upholding the historical importance of the site. The two buildings, formerly used as warehouses and for burning shavings, make up the thermal heart of the complex and are now used as think tanks for a creative team who develop communication, industrial design and photography projects. The doors and windows have been realized using hot-rolled FerroFinestra with visible welding, protected by a coat of hot dip transparent paint that highlights the untreated steel. Also noteworthy are the wide sliding glass doors that overlook the surrounding green space.

The new university premises in Provianda S. Marta

location Verona / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Material: hot-dip rolled steel
Designer: IUAV Studi e Progetti - Venezia con Massimo Carmassi - Florence

The Provianda di Santa Marta, designed by Anton von Naredi-Raineris, is a complex of three buildings on the outskirts of the historical centre of Verona. It was built between 1863 and 1865 in a Neo-medieval Romanesque-Gothic style on the site of the monastery of Santa Maria, which was abolished in the 19th century under a Napoleonic decree. The three buildings were born during the subsequent construction of a crucial military compendium, situated close to the Milan – Venice railroad which had been finished 10 years before. The most majestic of the buildings is the former bakery which was used for storage, as an grain mill and to bake bread and crackers for over 100,000 soldiers of the Royal Army of the kingdom of Lombardy-Veneto. A meticulous and accurate renovation, which has already brought to completion one of the three buildings, has transformed the former military bakery into the headquarters for the faculty of Economics at the University of Verona and other urban functions. The use of doors and windows made with FerroFinestra system profiles respects the original architectural lines whilst increasing the thermal and acoustic efficiency through the use of insulating glass.

High thermal efficiency loft in Bologna

location bologna / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Material: hot-dip rolled steel
Designer: Arch. Luca Bertacchi with Sara Bergami (Bo)

This old mechanic’s workshop in the centre of Bologna has been given a new lease of life for city living. Its generous spaces have been restructured as a cosy and welcoming private dwelling, part of a trend to astutely salvage disused industrial areas. The large vaulted area sits against a lower section which has been reshaped as an internal courtyard, visually linked to the main body through two large glass doors. Thanks to their favourable position, these doors allow the sunlight to penetrate and warm the heart of the building in the coldest months, bathing the surroundings with intense light and creating a positive heat flow. During the summer months the sun is too high to shine inside the building and so it is kept fresh. In addition to the daytime area on the ground floor, a loft area has been created for the night. The designers have used FerroFinestra which brings to mind the characteristic glass divisions commonly used in industrial design, whilst keeping the typical appearance of iron by treating it with a simple transparent opaque varnish.

The Biennale in Venice, Arms rooms in the Arsenal

location Venice / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Material: hot-dip rolled steel
Designer: Venice Biennale Restoration project

The Venetian Arsenal, dating back to 1200, was the largest industrial complex in Europe in the pre-industrial period. Covering an area of around 46 hectares (110 acres) it employed as many as 2000 workers per day to construct the navy fleets of the ‘Serene Republic’ in a vast hub of shipyards, dry-docks and warehouses. Over time this activity ceased and the Gardens were designated as an area to host cultural initiatives. The International Art Exhibition has been held there since 1895 and the International Architecture Exhibition, which takes place in the Corderie building, since 1980. Works got underway in 2012 to restore the 16th century Sale d’Armi complex, with its spaces utilized by Argentina, UAE, South Africa, Turkey, Mexico and the Vatican as permanent pavilions for the Art and Architecture Exhibitions under twenty-year grants. After necessary measures were taken to render the site safe for use, the worn down metal windows and doors were replaced with new ones of the FerroFinestra system which are in keeping with the robust stonework on the walls which was left in its original state. These works were carried out in accordance with the local National Heritage authority (Soprintendenza BBAA).

Private Residence in Salento

location Apulia / system Mogs 65 Steel
 

Designer: Arch. Piergiorgio Semerano
Landscape designer: Arch. Iride Filoni
Site manager: Arch. Andrea Piscopo
Material: galvanized steel

The imposing presence of a stone and lattice design fence and thick vegetation allow only a glimpse of a building whose volume is partially emptied by a deep garden terrace that melts with the green underneath. The lattice design entrance door is almost invisible. Surprisingly, the indoor volume is much bigger than the outdoor one because the basement is arranged as a living room by creating an opening that crosses all the three floors and visually extends over the height of the building by means of a large roof window that cuts the roof along its entire length. The basement is the main living-room because the ground was dug to create a large yard where the wide kitchen overlooks. Consequently, the garden is developed on two levels, connected by an inclined ground planted with aromatic plants and an herbal garden. Like the roof, the back side is cut along the whole height so that the garden is visible from all indoor areas. The glimpse, no more limited by space, can perceive dimensions that can no longer be found in the contemporary architecture of a house.
