Studio Bizzarro & Partners specializes in private residential construction, commercial, industrial, and public works, as well as hospitality structures and industrial design, managing the entire creation process from conception to construction site. Throughout their extensive professional activity, they create architecture on both small and large scales, directing all compositional choices towards a strong figurative deviation of the project from the existing context.
At the beginning of each creative process, the guidelines for the planimetric composition are generally deduced, and from a series of setbacks from the road lines and vertical voids, the architectural form emerges. In addition to the essentiality of these two compositional gestures, the use of contemporary design elements such as folding, interlocking, volumes, projections, light and shadow, masses, and transparencies is employed. The use of different external skins helps to highlight the projects as the result of grafting monolithic blocks. It is a geometric world where curves are at most a requirement generated by the site, surfaces are as transparent as possible, and spaces are reduced to interlocking lines. The interior and exterior are part of the same continuum, extending the spaces to the outdoors.
Officina Archimuro was founded in Rimini in 2007, born from the passion of architect Mattia Santucci for
the combination of art and architecture.
La passione per la pittura e la scultura é stato il propulsore principale per un architettura volta a
raccontare delle storie , emozionare e sorprendere .
“Tutto ciò che passa dalla testa alle mani “ il motto che da sempre ho voluto che arrivasse ai miei
clienti , la passione per i lavori manuali , il contatto con le materie prime ancora da plasmare hanno
reso il processo progettuale unico , invertendone i canoni tradizionali .
Progettare per me é come dipingere un quadro fatto di piccole pennellate che danno vita un po’
alla volta alla visione finale celata all’interno della mia testa , un processo ribaltato che parte da
una realtà virtuale che viene rimodellata in continuazione fino al raggiungimento della sua forma
Amo trattare l’architettura come tratto i miei quadri , amo vedere i clienti emozionarsi nel vedere il
risultato finale legato alla storia che gli ho narrato ….
