ACPV ARCHITECTS Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and engineering-architecture-ICT firm DBA PRO. signed the contract for the renovation of the Rome headquarters of Italian public broadcaster Rai. Their winning architectural design competition entry will create a highly innovative building with new spaces, more comfort for people, cutting-edge technological solutions, and a design based on the principles of sustainability and biophilia.
Inspired by the dynamic style of Milanese cafes, the new illy Monte Napoleone café is a flexible space that combines the materials of classically Milanese interiors, such as hand-worked terrazzo flooring, with the walls’ recycled glass mosaic tiles and the bar’s oak wood paneling. Enriched by elements of greenery such as the bamboo on the backdrop and the magnolia in the center, the courtyard establishes a dialogue with the interiors to create a unique experience of typically Milanese taste.
through a holistic approach to sustainable design. A first step towards an armistice between nature and architecture.
The interior design concept for Custom Line Navetta 50 is permeated with a sense of refinement and sophistication by reinterpreting the tradition of yacht building from a contemporary perspective. The use of fine and sustainable materials, including natural leathers, used both in the finishes and in the sophisticated detailing of the custom designed furnishings, will point up the personality, values and heritage of the brand. Gate Central will offer 1,700 sqm of residential and retail spaces while regenerating an area that was heavily bombarded in wartime Milan.
Building synergies among the technical, economic, social and environmental characteristics of the site area that was originally intended for a nuclear power plant that never came into operation, the Center comprises the new 5,000-square-meter Energy Transition Museum, exhibition spaces dedicated to art installations, spaces for educational and training activities, and event spaces connected to a panoramic terrace that allows visitors to appreciate the surrounding landscape and the extraordinary historical and architectural value of the site.

Arte is a collection of 16 luxury residences on the sunny oceanfront of Surfside-Miami, Florida. Its architecture addresses the urban streetscape–the leisurely character of hospitality and residential buildings along Collins Avenue–and the building’s exposure to the beach on the east side.
