From the architect. The building is located near the Sile river just out of the historical walls of Treviso, Veneto region (Italy).

A big and long white volume with black parts going outside and grey parts sunken inside.

This townhouse is composed by 9 apartments on three different levels.

The architecture is clearly rationalist and wants to make a dialogue with the ‘900 italian architecture.

From every apartment and from the common parts you ever see the riverside giving the feeling to be part of this land.

A sterile piece of architecture. Humbleness is so elegant sometimes : here it is not at all.

Being an architect in northern italy, this a remarkable building. Exactly like ktanleysubrick and totot said, not every building has to be a "masterpiece" or a super flashy candy ( like many projects seen on archdaily ).
If all buildings were like this, we would then live in a much better world.

totot · March 01, 2010

Yeah, not all architecture is 2000 sqm hollywood villas or absurd effimeral typologic nipponic experiments

ktanleysubrick · March 01, 2010

In my opinnion it's sometimes good to see example of good architecture not from the top, but which is more typical to what we have in our cities. 90% of architecture built today is not innovative or even attractive. I see in those pictures economic reasons, but also thinking about - how we can do it with style. Architects care about detail.

I don't know what you all mean, in my opinion it's very good

The y form was determined by the land parcel shape. It isn't a bad idea, though the resulted shaded niche in the last picture isn't something to be very proud of. I like that every apartment is unique and well designed. Good answer for suburban medium density housing.

Has this building just been built ? If it's the case, Italy is so far behind, I mean it's a third league building from the 60's for the planning. It almost makes me angry to see such a low level of curiosity, spirit of challenge for contemporary themes. And such a low virtuosity.

What is the point of doing this Y-form volume ? Does it produce a quality ?
What are the main qualities of this building ?
Why O why, this so poor language of the modern, nowadays, why?

And an architect has to cure for details. It's natural. It's not an architectural quality to have a slickly finished building. It's a duty.

It's true, Ambra has been quite hard...But I totally agree with her somehow.

cara ambra, il tuo commento è volgare non certo per l'innocua parolaccia ma perche non sei stata in grado di spiegare perche non valeva la pena pubblicarlo.
waiting for something clever than two words..
