House in the landscape

location Treviso, Italy / system FerroFinestra W75 TB
 

Designer: Metamorphosi104
Photo: Marco Zanta

The residential building is located in an area of the Treviso countryside that has remained intact and is very important from a landscape point of view, as it is lapped by the Meolo river and close to the bed of the Piave river. The building consists of two L-shaped rectangular bodies, of which the two-storey main building contains the residential functions, while the single-storey secondary building contains the service rooms, a guest living area and the garage with warehouse. The two-pitch roof protrudes along the main fronts and is covered with traditional recovered tiles. The walls are composed of hemp lime covered inside and out with breathable plaster made from natural hydraulic lime and pozzolan in the colour of wet earth, and are cut by windows of varying sizes that offer suggestive views of the lush garden and the landscape.

Oceaanhuis West 507

location Rotterdam, Holland / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Designer: Mei architects and planners
Photo: Bart van Hoek

Mei architects and planners redeveloped the Ocean House on the Westzeedijk in Rotterdam – also known as the Stokvis building. Once the headquarter of Europe’s largest trading company, this national monument has been converted into a unique loft residential building.
An extensive cultural-historical exploration was carried out prior to the design process. Due to the turbulent history, many different time layers are visible in the building. A modern volume has been added on top, slightly set back in relation to the facade ,while the monumental elements, such as the entrance at Heiman Dullaertplein, the Gothic hall and Tudor hall, and the canteen on the roof, have remained intact. The characterstic windows of the red brick facade and the wide openings of the inner courtyard have been replaced with contemporary windows made of thin steel profiles, offering modern comfort while preserving the original aesthetics.

Mei redeveloped the Ocean House on the Westzeedijk in Rotterdam – also known as the Stokvis building. Commissioned by Waterford Investments & Vervat Vastgoed, this national monument has been converted into a unique loft residential building.

History
The Stokvis building was once the headquarter of Europe’s largest trading company. The Rotterdam company Stokvis and Sons, founded in 1849 by a Jewish family, traded in all possible products, varying from screws, vehicle lifts, chemicals to radios and mopeds (Zundapp and Puch).
The building on Westzeedijk, built in 1909, was once a “modern business palace”, with innovations such as car passages through the building, a covered courtyard, and a canteen with roof terrace. The building was heavily damaged during the war and was almost completely rebuilt between 1946 and 1948. In that period, the building got its current, more business-like facade. Pre-war elements were preserved inside the building. In 1974, the Stokvis company left the building and some changes were made, such as closing the passageways to the courtyard for trucks and largely changing the interior. Since then, the building has been in use by a multitude of institutions and companies, such as a college school, police office and the municipality of Rotterdam, and the building was given the name “Ocean House”. In 2002 the building obtained the status of national monument.

Transformation vision
An extensive cultural-historical exploration was carried out prior to the design process. This research revealed all the major changes the Ocean House has undergone over the past century; the damage caused by the bombing of the Royal Air Force in 1942, the alterations to the facades in 1948, and the impoverishment due to long vacancy. It also revealed the core values ​​of the former business palace, such as the entrance hall, the elevator with wooden doors, the stairwells, and the barrel vault.
Due to the turbulent history, many different time layers are visible in the building. And it is precisely this diversity that forms the DNA of the Ocean House and the starting point for a well-considered transformation vision. In the design by Mei, the quality of all time layers has been embraced and the monumental elements, such as the entrance at Heiman Dullaertplein, the Gothic hall and Tudor hall, and the canteen on the roof, have remained intact. With the transformation into a loft residential building with modern added volume on top, the Ocean House has acquired a new value for Rotterdam and, with respect for the existing building, we have added a new time layer.

Varied residential program
A great discovery in cultural-historical exploration was the way in which daylight penetration was arranged in the original Ocean building. A central corridor circulation in combination with skylight courtyards and voids in the four corners provided the entire building with daylight in an ingenious way. These light courts were closed in 2016, but for Mei this was the reason to bring these light courts and inner corridor back into contemporary housing design.
The four corners of the building originally had light courts, which had been closed in recent decades and had lost their function. In Mei’s design, these light courts have been restored and made transparent. By linking these four light courts in the floor plan by means of an inner corridor and creating houses on both sides, two rings of houses are created: an inner ring and an outer ring. The houses on the inner ring are located directly on the inner garden, the former atrium. The atrium was originally used for loading and unloading trucks for the factory, and has been transformed into a unique courtyard, accessible to the residents. The houses in the outer ring have beautiful monumental high ceilings, up to 5 meters high, with rounded ceiling connection and monumental window divisions.
Everywhere, the typology of the houses follows the lines of the monument. This naturally led to an attractive differentiation of approximately 200 homes, varying from 50 to 250 m2, and from family apartments to studios, lofts, corner apartments, living-work apartments, and penthouses. The target group is young-working starters for smaller homes, and young couples with or without children.

New time layer
The monumental stairwells are used to access the houses and to reach the newly added residential layer on the original rooftop. These penthouses are organized around the existing light courts and have a roof terrace over the full width.
The layer that represents the present time, is located on top of the building. The new layer is slightly set back in relation to the facade, so that it is withdrawn from the street scene in all modesty. The penthouses subtly blend in with the existing historic elements, such as the light courtyards, the dome of the atrium and form a meandering and pleasant roof landscape of courtyards. The outer walls of the roof structure are made of a golden yellow, folded aluminum facade cladding. This materialization and refinement in detailing refer to the sheet metal working company Stokvis and tie in very well with the warm, dark bricks and the concrete keystone. The golden-yellow aluminum typesetting is reflected in various places in the interior of the communal areas, such as the frame of the elevators. The inner area of ​​the roof structure is finished with wooden cladding that matches the warm appearance of the existing masonry. Within the construction ring courtyards are created around the light hoods. Residents can make these courtyards green themselves, connecting the deck to the green atrium and garden on the side site.

Community building
Mei’s designs are characterized by sustainable and future-proof solutions that stimulate the emergence of communities. The concepts are based on themes such as inclusion, diversity, density, sustainability, flexibility, health and well-being. WEST507, as the Ocean House is called since completion, is a loft building with approximately 200 homes, which distinguishes itself in terms of architecture and identity and thus increases the involvement of residents and users.
In the design of WEST507, the monumental spaces have been used for communal functions that serve the community of WEST507. The classic Tudor room and Gothic room, formerly the boardrooms of the Stokvis company, are used for meetings, consultations, flex workplaces for residents, etc. The Juliana Hall, a spacious and richly detailed room above the main entrance and previously the showroom of the innovations of the Stokvis company, has been renovated and is used as a communal room for a library and space for conferences / lectures.

Palazzo delle Pietre

location Rome, Italy / system M65 TB
 

Designer: Studio MP2A_Maurizio Pappalardo, Romina Fava
Photo: Paolo Fusco

Located in the heart of Rome, just a few steps from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, in Via delle Coppelle, the Palazzo delle Pietre boasts ancient roots: the current Palazzo delle Pietre was originally built before 1400, in correspondence with the famous Terme Alessandrine ex Neroniane built in 62 AD and in use until the fifth century AD.
The Palazzo delle Pietre was purchased by the Mazzi family in 2012, in a state of abandonment. A skilful restoration work brought it back to its former glory, where Carlo Mazzi's private collection (fragments of ancient sculptures, inlaid friezes, capitals and travertine portals) sits alongside contemporary design furniture by Artemide, De Padova and Aliver, to give guests the luxury of a holiday in one of Italy's most exclusive historic homes.

Ex Enel Building

location Modena, Italy / system FerroFinestra W50 TB - ISO TB
 


Designer: Comune di Modena - Arch. Alessandro Neri e Giuseppe Mucci
Photo: Paolo Belvedere

The AEM (Azienda Elettrica Modenese) power station, built in 1912, was originally intended for the production of electricity to power the tram network and the few users of the time; with the decommissioning of the transformation plant in 1950, the central part of the building was used as a warehouse, while the lateral bodies were partially lofted for use as offices.
The entire former AMCM complex, including the former AEM building, is an area of historical and architectural interest, and is the subject of urban redevelopment projects.
The aim of the renovation project is to make the central body of the building and the mezzanine available for use as "Open Laboratories", spaces equipped with advanced ITC solutions, to be used as places for discussion and collaboration between businesses, citizens and the public administration, and shared work spaces.
The windows and doors were replaced with the FerroFinestra Mogs system: galvanised steel frames with thermal break, identical in shape, design and colour to the pre-existing early 20th century ones, fitted with double-glazed safety glass in compliance with safety and energy saving regulations.

Private residence

location Rome, Italy / system M65 TB
 

Designer: Stefano Francolino
Paolo Fusco

The Mandrione village is one of the historic examples of 'spontaneous' settlements that have sprung up near the ancient Roman ruins. It is here that the farsightedness of a client/designer, in love with his Rome, has enabled the redevelopment of a shed that had been abandoned for decades, built at the foot of the ancient Roman aqueduct.
The restoration project directly relates the ancient and the modern without one prevailing over the other. The ancient brick of the arch has been used again for the paving of the garden and in the lime colours of the facades. Large steel windows light up the building, preparing it for a new life.

Casa Atelier

location Milan, Italy / system Mogs Basic - FerroFinestra W40 - FerroFinestra W50 TB
 

Designer: Loris Cecchini, Jade Vlietstra, Luca de Risi
Photo: Marco Zanta

Loris Cecchini is an artist from Milan, whose works have been exhibited internationally, with solo shows in prestigious museums including the Palais de Tokio and the MoMa in New York.
After several years in Berlin, the artist returns with his wife Jade to his hometown, where he looks for a large structure to be used as a home-studio, similar to the one that had hosted him for a long time in the German capital. He found it just outside Milan, in a 60's reinforced concrete building that had been in disuse for about 5 years and was first used as a timber warehouse and then as a machine repair shop.
The renovation of the 500 square meters of the building has provided for a division of space between home and art workshop.
Particular attention has been paid to the light element, in particular to the natural light that is diffused in the rooms through large glass and steel openings. The FerroFinestra Mogs system integrates perfectly with the industrial style of the facade, and ensures high performance in terms of thermal insulation and anti-burglary safety.

Villa la Grintosa Porto Cervo

location Porto Cervo, Costa Smeralda, Italy / system M65 TB inox
 

Designer: Arch. Stefania Stera

A sculpture to live barefoot. Stefania Stera, an Italian architect who has her studio in Paris, designs a majestic villa, perfectly integrated into the landscape of the Costa Smeralda. Villa La Grintosa is a prodigy of light and movement, with linear curves and textures that intersect each other, underlining the combination of art and architecture. Architect Stera has brought together international designers and skilled workers to work together, creating volumes that do not alternate the site, but magnificence it. The villa is characterized by enormous openings, some geometric and others - soft and sinuous - follow the curve of the landscape and the conformation of the natural elements. A large folding opening closes the patio, transforming it into a magnificent living en plain air. The outer door of the kitchen - a huge curved sliding door designed to measure - surprises with a height of over 4 meters while maintaining maximum elegance and slimness of the frames. These spectacular openings that characterize the villa, including the exotic pointed arch window of the master bedroom, are made with the Mogs M65 TB stainless steel system, which was then painted in the colours that best suited the individual spaces.

Designer: Arch. Mauro Berruti

The house, on the outskirts of Rome, was born from the owners' desire to recreate a large family home according to the highest standards of sustainability, where there was a reinforced concrete construction of the 60s. The new building is entirely made with XLAM wooden load-bearing structures and finished with a mineral fibre coat and plaster. The building is set in a relatively small garden, so the large openings allow an intimate dialogue with the outside greenery, projecting it inside the house. The huge lift and slide door that opens into the living area floods the room with light and provides excellent thermal insulation.

Killara

location Killara, Australia / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Killara, a residential town north of Sydney, was home to the famous architect Harry Seidler, Australia's leading Bauhaus exponent. A clear rationalist imprint is all over the city's architecture. Just a few steps away from Killara House, or Harry and Penelope Seidler House, a large private residence seems to exalt, in a contemporary key, the elegance and formal cleanliness of 1930s architecture. The huge transparent windows were made by Italian workers with the FerroFinestra system. The lightness of the glass is interrupted only by thin steel frames, painted in a particular matt black, to give the interior an incomparable brightness and a continuous dialogue with the garden, up to the overhanging volume in glass and steel that houses the dining room. Adequate thermo-acoustic insulation and the necessary burglary protection are guaranteed by the considerable thickness of the steel sheet used, and by the increased depth of the profiles, which allows the housing of low-emission glass-room. There are many types of opening: internal and external hinged sash, vertical and horizontal hinged sash, sliding systems and folding systems.

M9 Museum

location Venice, Italy / system FerroFinestra D75 TB
 

Planner: Studio Sauerbruch Hutton
Photo: Marco Zanta

In 2010, the Fondazione di Venezia held an international competition for the design of M9, inviting six prestigious European offices to produce a sustainable design so that M9 might become an example, the visible demonstration of a different design culture that respects the environment, is technologically advanced and addresses energy-consumption issues. Sauerbruch Hutton is known for its sustainable designs. For M9, it proposed cutting-edge structural and M&E solutions to reduce energy requirements. Thanks to these options plus the idea of a building that would integrate with the surrounding urban design and the inspiration of designing new public spaces and accesses to make the area fully permeable, the Berlin office won the competition and secured the project.  The designers have been able to regenerate a block that has been unusable for years, transforming it into what today is not only a museum venue for over 5 thousand square meters, but also a complex urban hub, crossed by pedestrian paths that lead to a central square animated by shops. The project is based on the recovery of a former sixteenth-century convent with cloister, now home to offices and shops, and on the construction of a new large triangular volume (museum, galleries and auditorium) and a second smaller volume, intended as a innovative shopping center. The combination of closed and glazed surfaces enhances the color, used as a tool for perceptive modification of space.

The restoration of the Palazzo del Mezzogiorno, carried out in 1951 within the Bari Fiera del Levante on a project by the architect Piero Mario Favia, provides for the recovery of the original features of one of the testimonies of the Modern Movement in Bari, and its re-use in order to host the museum, exhibition and educational spaces of the Apulia Film House, a new “Cinema house”. The planners have formulated a restoration proposal aimed at restoring the distinctive features of this "modern monument" - the multi-functionality and transparency - today strongly altered despite the fact that the building has been restricted since 2008. The large glass and steel openings, with thermal break technology, fully respect the original aesthetics and guarantee the building excellent thermal and acoustic insulation values ​​and a long life.

Italianate House

location Sidney, Australia / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Designer: D'Ettorre Architects
Photo: Simone Bossi

This is a new contemporary family home previously used as offices in the 1990s. It’s a restoration and brave modification of an existing 1880’s heritage-listed three-storey Victorian Italianate-style terrace house with carriageway, modifications to the rear wing and restoration and modifications to the 1860’s sandstone stables, restoration of rear stone fences and addition of a concrete carport with landscaped roof terrace located at the rear of an ‘L’ shaped site in Surry Hills, Sydney. The underlying concept was to translate an existing 1990s office fit-out into a contemporary residence while honouring the historic charm of the building and giving the owners a comfortable home with bold design modifications. The low heritage significance of the existing rear wing offered an opportunity for total restructuring, so it was here that the most dramatic design intervention took place. The introduction of the impressively engineered double-height brick vaulted ceiling to the restructured rear wing seemed an appropriate element for the Italianate style of house. The constraints of the site meant that, instead of building a new addition to the rear wing, space could be reworked to provide light and visual connection as well as access to courtyards. Special consideration was given to separating the historical terrace house from its rear wing with glazing to link the voids and separate the old from the new with negative space. The building's harmonious internal structures were preserved, including historical features such as the ornate marble fireplaces, main staircase, and glass panelled door, and the sidelights were brought back to life to enhance the home's beauty. The existing building's generous size permitted additional spaces beyond the client’s needs and expectations allowing the introduction of the multi-use conservatory on the rear wing’s second level. The conservatory has been treated as an outdoor living area with potted trees. It's a winter garden during the cooler seasons with abundant natural sunlight and, on rainy days, is protected by the glass roof.

Material: Acciaio verniciato
Designer: Fabrika + Studio
Photo: Koridor 27

Istria is truly a fascinating land, a landscape that is idyllic in many ways, as the official hymn of the Istrian Region Krasna zemljo or “Beautiful Land” states. The PUERTO LUNA AZUL atelier / residence, with a unique view of the Canal d’Arsia and the Kvarner Islands, is perfectly integrated into the natural landscape, both in terms of volumetric choices and used materials. The supporting structure consists of a steel skeleton with HEA beams and pillars. Cor-ten steel has been used in the ventilated wall that closes towards the small adjacent town, in the no-invasive tool shed and as decoration material for various details. In the interiors, plywood and chestnut wood prevail. On the sea side, large glass and steel openings allow to fully enjoy the beautiful landscape, and let the surrounding garden “enter” the living area. Realized using the system FerroFinestra Mogs W50 TT, these large windows and doors guarantee a high thermal insulation and the necessary security against break-ins.

Restoration of a Medioeval Tower

location Lucca / system FerroFinestra W50 TB
 

Material: steel
Designer: Roberto Pedicone
Photo: Paolo Fusco

A charming medieval tower in Lucca, in the heart of Tuscany, has been completely restored to a modern apartment. The solutions adopted for the openings are interesting, in some cases following the original design of the arched windows, in others they propose a geometric solution leaning on the arch of the openings. In all cases, the slender and rational design of the FerroFinestra system guarantees maximum elegance of the windows, while the thermal barrier system ensures high interior comfort and excellent energy saving.

Restoration of an old barn

location Emilia Romagna / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Material: painted steel
Designer: Studiomas architetti (Marco Rapposelli, Piero Puggina)
Photo: Marco Zanta

In the countryside between Parma and Reggio Emilia there are several ancient farms, now abandoned or in ruins. All of them have the same features, so that it is possible to recognize a building type: a compact block on three levels hosting the farmer’s residence, completed by a stretched volume hosting the cattle at the ground floor and the hay at the first floor. The cattleshed has three naves divided by brick columns supporting a vaulted brick ceiling, the barn consists in a big hall opened to the South, with pillars supporting oak trusses and a brick roof; both are screened from the sun by a deep and high portico with brick paving. 
The project consists in a conservative restoration of the cattleshed volume and in a renovation of the dwelling spaces. All the existing brick and stone walls, all the brick floors and roofs have been maintained, or, if damaged, they have been dismantled, restored piece by piece and reassembled. The same work has been done for the oak beams, the doors, the iron railings, the stairs and all the elements that it was possible to recover. Therefore the project has manage to preserve the witnesses of a long tale. 
Since the house is located in an active earthquake zone, the structure has been reinforced with steel prosthesis, hidden into the walls, the wood beams and the roofs.

Glass Cube

location Ostuni (BR) / system Mogs 65 TT Steel
 

Material: Galvanized steel
Designer: Arch. Enrico Maria Cicchetti Studio EMC | Architects W

A rural paradise made of olive trees and lush nature is the harmonious background to a group of trulli restored to the splendor of the past. In this skillful renovation, in which the interiors flow seamlessly in the exterior and vice versa, the attention is focused on the realization of a glass cube, where light plays a primary role. The Glass Cube is a volume converted from storage of agricultural implements to an extension of the living area, creating a continuity with other environments by means of exposed stone walls, making fluid the spaces and passages between the various routes. It is essential, linear, rational, composed of a series of exposed concrete slabs rotated 90 ° with respect to each other, connected by vertical and horizontal glass walls. A large transparent case that surrounds a pre-existing centuries-old olive tree, underlining the importance of contrast and symbiosis with the surrounding nature, without changing the harmonies between empty and full, between matter and air, consolidated over time. The insertion of the new transparent volume has been realized with the Mogs 65 TT Steel system, which allows to obtain large windows with a very small visual impact (18 mm) together with a high anti-burglary safety and excellent energy performances. The planner, Architect Enrico Maria Cicchetti, has been inspired by the principles of the Bauhaus and by the interpretation of design as a union of art, craftsmanship and technology. The result of the work is given by the direct synergy between the various workers of the place, which bring the knowledge of local materials and their workmanship, and the designer who integrates the historicity with a balanced modern contribution.

3D HOUSING 5.0

location Fuori Salone Milano 2018, Piazza C. Beccaria / system BronzoFinestra B40
 

Material: Architectural Bronze, finitura lucida
Designer: Massimiliano Locatelli, CLS Architetti
Photo: Luca Rotondo

Presented on the occasion of Milan Design Week 2018, 3D HOUSING 5.0 in Piazza Beccaria is the first 3D printed house in Europe. An absolutely revolutionary project in terms of time, costs and lifestyles, which has earned a place of honor among the numerous events of the Fuori Salone 2018. The 100 square meters of the house, designed by the Architect Massimiliano Locatelli in collaboration with Italcementi and Arup, are divided into a living area, a sleeping area, a bathroom and a kitchen. The interiors are printed exclusively in the structural parts: finishes and furnishings are instead classic, but carefully chosen, to bring back the value of memory and the preciousness of history. For the doors and the windows, the Studio chose Mogs profiles in Architectural Bronze with a minimalist design, in an elegant glossy golden finish, which assure that comfort and that sense of warmth and well-being that is necessary for a living space. Made with skilful craftsmanship by La Bottega del Fabbro di Como, the bronze windows were entirely financed by the show room Officine Milano. "The polished brass windows and doors - and the bathrooms taken from a single block of marble - want to bring back a sense of good bourgeoisie, of well-being", says Arch. Locatelli. "You can have hundred percent ecological homes, new housing realities that can even come from the ashes of the existing eco-monsters. To be pulverized and mixed with the nuances of the local land, in the mixture of new houses of the future".

1960s barn refurbishment

location Collina di Palesio (Bo) / system FerroFinestra W50 TB
 

Designer: Ciclostile Architettura
Photo: Fabio Mantovani

A barn of the 60s turned into a workplace for the artist, an environment of experimentation and story in which the light and the surrounding hills shape the architecture. The needs of the client are translated into design gestures consistent with the essence of the building, not of particular architectural value but interesting for the spaces that it can potentially accommodate. The planimetric distribution sees all the main and service areas on the ground floor, to completely free up the first floor and dedicate it to a large open space overlooking the greenery, exploiting the existing heights to obtain a bright and ventilated environment. Another fundamental element of the project is symmetry. The structural form of the building on the ground floor is given by a frame in reinforced concrete with two rows of pillars that mark the plan. We started from the pillar step to re-proportion the environments according to need. The plant is thus divided into three, two larger environments characterized by a laboratory and a study, and a third dedicated to services that becomes a filter band between the two main environments. A third fundamental aspect of the project is the relationship with the landscape, sought through a greater visual connection. In fact, this aspect translates into the modification of the elevations, that is, in the realization of large openings to increase the internal-external relationship in the environment on the first floor.

Private residence

location Greece / system Mogs 65 TB Steel
 

Designer: Architect George Moustroufis by Moustroufis Architects

The villa, with its exclusive aesthetic, qualitative and functional features is located in the wonderful Greek landscape. Spaces and functions were the themes to which the architects paid the most attention to, with the choice of precious materials. Mogs frames respect the need to combine aesthetics with technical qualities such as durability and resistance. The use of Mogs profiles also favors considerable brightness in the villa’s interior spaces, that become one with the outdoor environment.

Villa on the bay, Santa Teresa di Gallura

location Santa Teresa di Gallura - Sassari / system Mogs 65 Steel e Alzante Scorrevole MLS60
 

Material: Painted galvanized steel
Designer: Arch. Francesco Cosatto - Udine

This villa was born from the restoration of a group of three small villas facing a bay which encircles the crystal clear and pristine waters of North Sardinia. This natural setting provided an inspirational cue for the project designers; a landscape stretching from the internal spaces through wide openings towards the spectacular view of the Mediterranean. The eye is drawn along the hulks of granite smoothed by the wind and strung out to the point where the sky meets the sea. The connection between the three small villas has created wilfully irregular spaces both on inside, the facade and the protective portico running around the villa. The building is crafted in materials such as cracked granite, barked wooden beams, and canes for the portico. In addition to these, painted steel has been used for the sliding door and window fixtures. Its earthy shade complements the colour of the facades and the smooth, sand coloured external pavements, immersing the villa in the natural landscape.

Former Olivetti factory complex

location Pozzuoli (NA) / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Material: Progetti Speciali la Biennale di Venezia
Designer: Ing. Giancarlo ed Arch. Andrea Cosenza Associati - Napoli

The meeting between Adriano Olivetti, an enlightened entrepreneur, and Luigi Cosenza one of the foremost protagonists of Italian architecture gave rise in the early 50s to what is considered to be one of the most beautiful industrial plants in Italy. It looks out over the slopes of Pozzuoli with a panoramic view of the gulf, and is composed of various bodies characterized by wide expanses of glass - built in the past with hot rolled profiles from Ilva – which allow the workers in the factory to appreciate the green panorama and feel part of the nature surrounding them. After the period of mechanical industry and telecommunications, part of the complex was dedicated to scientific enterprises, in particular to an international institute for research into genetic illnesses. The decommissioning of the industrial structure led the designers to safeguard the architectural characteristics of the pre-existing transparent surfaces by inserting new doors and windows with a Mogs FerroFinestra system. The doors and windows are identical in appearance but with a higher functional performance thanks to the application of seals and insulating glazing, in line with the current regulations for energy control.

Hotel Magna Pars Suites

location Milano / system Mogs ISO70 TB
 

Material: acciaio zincato verniciato
Designer: Arch. Luciano Maria Colombo – Milano

The 5 star Magna Pars Suites Milano is the first “scented” hotel based around high quality Italian perfumes. It lies in the Navigliarea, a stone’s throw from Via Tortona, the nerve centre of fashion and design. The hotel sits on the foundations of a former perfume factory, under the same ownership. Its 28 exclusive suites are themed with floral or woody scents; customised expressions of excellence and creativity which offer a unique welcome to each guest. The whole building faces a beautiful inner garden, which radiates a magical atmosphere of light, silence and peace. The complex is also furnished with a gym, spa and multifunctional meeting centre called the Magna Pars Event Space. A wide crystal wall at the entrance offers a glimpse of the industrial origins, whilst the doors and windows realized in painted steel with a thermal break, wed the elegance of the slim profile with its innate strength and maintain the legislative performance requirements for energy saving materials.

Trullo

location Martina Franca, Taranto / system FerroFinestra W40
 

Material: steel
Designer: Antonella Mari
Photo: Alberto Ferrero

In the Apulian landscape of Murgia dei Trulli, in a lot close to a wooded area, there is a rural complex, that originally consisted of three distinct buildings built in different time periods. The recovery intervention consisted in the restoration of the Trulli through the elimination of the superficies, the reorganization of the cones and the reconstruction of systems and finishes. In order to highlight the internal geometry and spatiality, we opted for the monochromatic treatment of the interiors, creating a continuity between the lime plaster, typical of these constructions, and the white micro-cement flooring, combining traditional materials and techniques with contemporary aesthetic solutions. The overall effect is very simple and aims to create a rarefied atmosphere, with soft edges. The total white of the Trulli is a counterpoint to the materials and finishes chosen for the interiors of the annexed buildings, represented by gray micro-cement and colored cement tiles. The project was developed around the strengthening of the centrality of the Trulli with respect to the two secondary volumes, to which, at the same time, dignity and expressive force were linked by linking them in a single body that surrounds the Trulli. In this way, defined external areas have been created, connected to each other thanks to the provision of wide openings and openings that frame the natural landscape. A common element both to the Trulli and to the two annexed buildings is represented by the doors and windows, made with thin profiles in Mogs FerroFinestra steel, left natural and protected by a transparent opaque finish. The same profile, declined in a different way, has proved to be optimal both for the small openings of the cones, embedded in the strong thickness of the perimeter walls, and for the windows and the doors of the two annexed volumes. In the first case, the thin profile made it possible to make the most of the available holes in order to encourage the entrance of natural light as much as possible. In the case of the windows, the reduced section was well suited to the realization of the panel design, of industrial taste, which gives character both to the interior rooms and to the external courtyard on which they overlook.

Peteani Hotel

location Labin, Croazia / system FerroFinestra W50 TT
 

Material: acciaio zincato
Designer: Studio Fabrika (Croazia)

What at the beginning of the last century was a luxury villa has recently been adapted to the first four-star hotel in the medieval town of Labin, located on the south east coast of Istria. The charming Peteani family boutique hotel is located along the main road leading to the old town. Offering a view of the small Renaissance church of Santa Maria della Salute and the two adjacent ateliers of the artists Verbanac and Bičić, the hotel is a fusion of the spirit of ancient times in Labin, cultural heritage and modern high-quality design. Its eleven double and three single rooms, with saunas, an extensive wine cellar and a restaurant with local specialties, have been designed by the renowned Croatian design studio "Fabrika". The historical part of the villa has been preserved in its original form while the newly built restaurant has been interpolated in accordance with the directives of the superintendence. The minimal FerroFinestra profiles with Thermal Barrier have allowed the designers to maintain their stylistic, essential and refined lines and to respect at the same time the required requisites.

Goldsmith workshop

location Roma / system FerroFinestra W50 TT and Mogs 65 TT Steel
 

Material: acciaio zincato verniciato
Designer: Arch. Adriano Pingaro – Roma
Photo: Paolo Fusco

The intervention involved the demolition of an old pre-existent building on the lot and the subsequent reconstruction of a two-family house, in addition to the basement. In its intended use, this is the style, professional and administrative office of Iosselliani jewels, a company that deals with the creation of costume jewelry and niche high-end jewelry. Therefore, the project has been brought back to the style requirements of the brand and to the logistics needs of the client. In compliance with the regulations and related urban and building restrictions, a compact volume has been created, set back from the road and in adherence to pre-existing buildings on both sides, creating an entrance garden and a secret back garden, completely surrounded by walls, to form a patio full of essences but completely protected. The large window is the element of continuity between the exterior and the interior where the minimal impact of the steel window frame ensures brightness, elegance and safety. The internal volume is characterized by a partial double height that allows an opening height of the entrance and a balcony on the upper level that overlooks the living room and serves as an element of distribution of the rooms located on the first floor. The mezzanine floor is characterized both on the front and on the back by two large full-height windows made with thermal barrier steel profiles that also act as a separator with the outside, in continuity with the gardens. The interior aesthetics uses classic and natural elements and alternates vintage furniture pieces with furniture and contemporary design items, to reproduce a familiar atmosphere while remaining faithful to industrial references contrasting with colors and coatings that are part of the collective imagination. The design concept is holistic, intended as a meeting point between nature and culture, a reconstructed Urban Jungle in which to escape from the bustle of the big city with environments of relaxation and sharing, with minimal but luxury elements, emotional and aesthetic at the same time.

Masseria Amastuola Wine Resort

location Crispiano - Taranto / System FerroFinestra W40
 

Designer: Arch. Rezza

The Amastuola farm is located on a hill dominating the Ionian arch and is part of the 100 masserias of Crispiano in the province of Taranto. It was built starting from the 1400s, but further interventions can be dated around 1600. In 2003 there was an initial intervention dedicated to the new production facilities: 110 hectares of wine grape vineyards, planted in waves that redesign the landscape. The architectural recovery and the conversion of the farm into a hotel began in 2013. The project was developed by the architect Vito Rezza, supported by the Montanaro family. The intervention was carried out according to a precise design guideline aimed at preserving the authenticity of the farm with its "signs of time" left over the years by usury and daily work. Within the "historical envelope", therefore, we intervened on the one hand, recovering everything authentic and true the farm presented, leaving intact the "masonry masses", on the other, expressing the new interventions on the building blocks, flooring, furnishings, etc. Today the farm Amastuola, now almost completely recovered, houses indoor and outdoor reception areas, bar, wine tasting room, bookshop, restaurant, conference room, expo spaces of Magna Graecia and 18 rooms. Swimming pool and spa are under construction. The materials used for the furnishings, coverings, finishes and additions have been dictated by the local tradition: wood, iron, majolica, stone, cement and tuff. The reception block is a volume in cor-ten steel located at the entrance of the large courtyard and well distinguished from the masses of the masseria; externally hidden by the wall of the main facade, it is inserted between the two massive ancient bodies in tuff. A large window made of iron with a traditional FerroFinestra profile faces the courtyard protected by a sunblind made of cor-ten sheet metal laser cut with a pattern of round holes (grape berries) that leave a glimpse of the outline of large leaves of vineyard. On the outside a gate in cor-ten steel is the entrance to the restaurant and is opposed to the large arched window that faces the large courtyard, and the sequence of side arches of the small court. The choice of FerroFinestra profiles with very reduced sections guarantees the maximum brightness of the interior spaces and creates a continuity between the various spaces.

Masseria Schiuma

location Monopoli - Bari / system FerroFinestra W50 TB
 


Material: acciaio zincato
Designer: Arch. Franco Mastrorosa
Photo: Studio Tartaglione



Foam is a magnificent word, in a moment it recalls to mind the foam of the sea waves, the soft soap bubbles and their rainbows, the soft milk, the shaving foam that smells like pungent cologne, the levity that is typical of childhood, an ephemeral consistency that calls to play at every age ....

There is Street named Schiuma, which from a point of the S90 that runs from Monopoli to Savelletri, towards the south, leaves the sea for an unexpected countryside. Masseria Schiuma takes its name from here, because the simplicity of its owners is such that it did not want to add other frills, other meanings to a place that is a temple of private spaces and shared spaces. There is nothing typical in this Apulian farmhouse, which is an old mill with rational spaces, an impressive architecture, humanized by original modern design pieces, of different workmanship and places. And it is precisely this passion for tradition and modernity that led to the choice of Mogs FerroFinestra Thermal Barrier window system, made with visible weldings and intentionally left in the natural color of the metal to preserve its authenticity. The original wooden doors have been for the most part restored and protected with the new steel frames that thanks to the minimal sections and the unique geometries represent the perfect aesthetic and technically functional contemporary solution.

Venice foundation

location Venice / system Mogs 65 TT Steel
 


Material: acciaio zincato verniciato con trattamento anti corrosione
Designer: APML Architetti_ Arch. Alessandro Pedron + Arch. Luca Vergombello
Photo: Francesca Occhi

The Jewel of the post-war architecture, the Rio Novo building, formerly Headquarter of Sade and Enel, is, since 2002, the new headquarter of Fondazione Venezia. Created between 1952 and 1961, the building highlights crucial aspects of the history of Venice in the post-WWII period, during which the city felt the need to align itself with operational criteria and formal ambitions of other Italian and foreign metropolitan areas. The involvement in the project of Lombard architects such as Luigi Vietti and Cesare Pea explains the austere originality of the building, unique in the Venetian landscape for the dimensions and articulation of the glass and cement fronts, initially conceived with all visible construction materials. The important intervention of replacing all the doors and windows in 2016 has enabled the building to be redeveloped from an energetic, acoustic and functional point of view, while maintaining the façade and the distinctive features of the building. The old pivotal iron frames have been replaced by overhanging fixtures with motorized openings integrated with domotic automation systems to make the various spaces even more functional. The use of Mogs 65 profiles with a thickness of 20/10 proved to be an essential choice considering the large dimensions of the full height openings. For the offices and meeting rooms overlooking Rio Novo, sound-absorbing glass was used to ensure perfect soundproofing from the noises of water traffic and ensure maximum interior comfort.

…I hope to have a piece of land that is mirrored on the sea, one day… Pino Pascali

A few meters from the sea, an old municipal slaughterhouse houses the Foundation Museum dedicated to the work and the figure of Pino Pascali, leading artist of Arte Povera movement, born in Bari and prematurely passed away in the sixties. As location of the new museum, the nineteenth-century structure – which had previously undergone an expansion, that had deeply altered its characteristics - required completion and redevelopment of internal and external spaces, as well as the activation of new functional areas, in order to adapt them to the specific requirements of an exhibition space for contemporary art. The location of the building suggested a project strongly focused on the relationship with the geographical and urban context, in particular through the creation of a small sculpture park open to the neighborhood and the sea and the creation of a public access path to the new roof garden. The continuous system of metal ramps, in addition to connecting externally the main levels of the building in order to ensure independent use, has made it possible to make the panoramic terrace, now characterized by large areas paved in wood, placed at different levels, destined to host exhibitions and outdoor events. As for the pre-existing structures, the intervention involved the redefinition of the elevations and the entrances; the creation of a bookshop, the setting up of a literary café with large windows overlooking the sea and an outdoor area; the recovery of former deposits in the basement, intended to house the permanent collection of the Foundation. The creation of windows and skylights has made it possible to optimize the diffusion of natural light inside the museum, and to redefine, with flexible structures, accesses, areas and routes. The white color, typical of the place, has been widely proposed: on the outside, to distinguish the volumes in expansion from the nineteenth-century building; in the inner rooms and in the reception areas of the main floor, to create neutral and luminous spaces. On the other hand, for the basement, destined to host installations and video projections in large part, the collected atmosphere created by gray finishes was preferred. White has also been chosen for the profiles of the windows and all internal and external doors and windows. Particular attention was paid to the selection of the most suitable materials, considering the size of the openings, the need to reduce heat loss and placement in an environment, which is suggestive but particularly aggressive. The solution for the large mirrors on the sea front and for the external doors has been identified in Mogs’s stainless steel 5050 profiles, while for the internal windows the thin section of Mogs FerroFinestra in galvanized steel was preferred. The identification of reduced section profiles was dictated by the need to frame, in the most discreet manner, the large portions of the sea, which are considered to be part of the beauties of the museum.

In a tuff farmhouse of the early twentieth-century, in the heart of the Sabina, the old portico has been converted into a new glass area inspired by the English 'conservatory'. The portico has now been converted in the living room for the family living in the farmhouse and reception and breakfast room for guests of the farm. The intervention plays with the style of the existing farmhouse looking for assonance and harmony with materials and color fields, allowing the contemporary design to emerge only from the linearity of the detailed solutions. The rough steel of the structure and of the fixtures is combined with the brick of the original flooring and with the new one of the smooth slabs of the ceiling. The corner bench, covered in recycled cementing and heated by the same radiant floor system, resolves, with the seat surface, the difference in height with the external flooring. The voids of the old portico have been replaced by a curtain wall system with Mogs FerroFinestra profile in hot-rolled steel with a transparent opaque finish. The profile, with its extremely thin sections, ensures at the same time a great brightness and a very low heat loss. The rough finish and the play of the frames effectively convey the timeless style of the intervention, in harmony with the patinas and the material and chromatic fields of the existing farmhouse.

Farmhouse renovation

location Bolsena Lake - Viterbo / system FerroFinestra W50 TT
 


Designer: Architect Various

The Res Antiqva property is located on the northern coast of Lake Bolsena in the territory of Tuscia that marks the natural border between Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. Bolsena is the largest volcanic lake in Europe famous for the cleanliness and richness of its waters and still presents to the tourist the same unspoiled nature of the past, defined by the French musician Berlioz "a delicious Eden".

Inside the Res Antiqva estate is the farmhouse of Rentica where the Arte Povera movement was born around the mid-1900s. The conservative restoration of the existing structure aims at preserving its original aesthetic appearance: respecting the architectural typology of a building, especially if it is rural, essentially means paying great attention to the reuse of original building materials. To create a harmonious environment, a careful study of every single detail, including the combination of colors and materials, is key: an example of this may be found in the windows, made with FerroFinestra Mogs thermal barrier profiles, that integrate perfectly into the facade with the aesthetics of a traditional element and at the same time contemporary, lending lightness and communication between the interior spaces and the countryside.
