We therefore imagined a slab building raised off the ground and occupying the entire surface of the area, below which are the volumes of the commercial units preceded by a portico, while the apartments are located on the upper levels.
Particular attention was paid to the housing typologies, that are distinguished by a complex typological research aimed at renovating the traditional single-level apartment.
The studio, founded by Mario Mento and active since the mid-1990s, has gained professional experience over the years in the field of architectural design at different scales , from urban planning to interior design.
