The building is in an upgrading area by replacing unqualified and obsolete construction. The size of the project, however, and its location on a side street than the major artery of Viale G. Bovio, urban section of the SS16 Adriatica, confer to this building a exclusively architectonic role, with no possibility of influencing the city around, if not its presence qualifying. In this scenario we have set ourselves the goal of developing a compositive program intentionally in self-referential mode, but that would meet the contingencies of the site, the demands of clients and, more importantly, he had the strength and clarity of a statement of intent: so we wanted to decline, with a didascalic irreverence, the Vitruvian triad Firmitas, Utilitas and Venustas in three separate volumes that the predominant feature descend directly from one single entry in the triad. So the concrete basement, for Firmitas, the stone sharded cube, for the Utilitas, and the Apollonian cube in white plaster, for Venustas, forming three portions of the building making it articulated from the volumetric and material point, and then, rich in continuously changing views: actually there is no surface portion of the building that can be flanked by similarity to another and all the elements that compose this articulated ensamble follow one another as in a film storyreel. Harmonic sequences of perspectives in succession.
