THE PLAN 125 [10-2020]
The theme of this issue is designer homes. Guillermo Acuña from Arquitectos Asociados shows us how a stilt house can be transformed into a community space, while SO – IL and Shenton Architects create complex relationships between a home and its surroundings on the North Fork of Long Island. With a design inspired by sustainability, Architecture BRIO further explores the dialogue with the environment in its artist retreat. Christoff : Finio has designed a timber family home that’s fully immersed in nature, while Plasma Studio has embraced the idea of designing an innovative, hi-tech family home. Damilanostudio Architects and Villa IE investigate the connections between Asia and the Alps of Italy’s Piedmont region, while Robert Konieczny of KWK Promes has designed home from the garden up. In our regular tour of Italy, Diverserighestudio reveals a face of the country that’s alternative, solid, and reliable. Finally, in this edition’s editorial, Larry Scarpa discusses how the concept of the dense city can be used to promote quality of life and social change.
