Genoa | Italy
study project | 2008
An apartment complex close to the city s downtown, built during the large urbanization of 1960-70.
The Commune set a plan to support the lowest citizens by letting local architects and designers think about creating some apartments on the top of that building, located near one of the biggest hotel/office tower in Genoa: the Starhotel President.
That is the background in which this project takes life.
These new apartments try to express the large importance of social housing as the term means: the statement that simple and inexpensive materials, driven and placed by a solid thinking, are able to build well-structured and comfortable space.
Not only for the lowest.
