#newproject Our new Fire Station proposal is a permeable and monomaterial building capable of blending into the landscape thanks to the use of natural colors. The use of red tones also contains a symbolic value because it is linked to the National Fire Corps. Even the planimetric plant has a double symbolic and functional value. In fact, the “C” configuration, in addition to defining a square and an open courtyard to the lake, symbolizes two open arms as a metaphor for protection and security. - More info on our website: www.set-architects.com - #monumentale #monumental #lecco #firestation #vigildelfuoco #caserma #competition #concorrimi #designproposal #proposal #concrete #thebna #theyap #minimal #razionalismo #postrazionalismo #betaarchitecture #concretearchitecture #red #alloforarchitecture #architecturepicture #render #rendering #architecturerender #architecture_hunter #arquitetapage #instaarch #architecture_best #setarchitects

#newproject House for a couple. The strategy of the project was to adapt the flat to the contemporary lifestyle of the young owners through large and fluid spaces while retaining some elements that recall the original character of the apartment. The purity of the rooms was therefore contaminated by a game of contrasts with original elements of the apartment such as Carrara marble, the white lacquered wooden window frames, and the lamps designed to reflect the spirit of that time. Being on the top floor, various types of skylights have been used to ensure natural light in all the spaces, as well as interesting plays of heights and light. - 📷 @simonebossiphotographer - Link in Bio - #architecture #archilovers #architecturephotography #lightandshadow #interiordesign #thespaces_selects #ig_architecture #rsa_minimal #interior #gominimalmag #arquitectura #minimalzine #subjectivelyobjective #noicemag #design #ourmomentum #vanishingpoint #architecturelovers #architexture #archidaily #minimalove #minimalmood #minimal_perfection #minimalism_world #mindtheminimal #unlimitedminimal #ic_minimal #minimalexperience #detail

#newproject An early 1900 apartment that plays on the dialogue between history and modernity. The most peculiar room of the apartment is the master bedroom which has been designed as an independent mini-suite, with the bed in the middle of the room, the large wall-wardrobe and the walk-in shower integrated with hydromassage. The photographer Simone Bossi captured the house using an analog camera when the owners were moving into the apartment. - 📷 @simonebossiphotographer - More info on our web-site: www.set-architects.com - #architecture #archilovers #architecturephotography #lightandshadow #interiordesign #thespaces_selects #ig_architecture #rsa_minimal #interior #gominimalmag #arquitectura #minimalzine #subjectivelyobjective #noicemag #design #ourmomentum #vanishingpoint #architecturelovers #architexture #archidaily #minimalove #minimalmood #minimal_perfection #minimalism_world #mindtheminimal #unlimitedminimal #ic_minimal #minimalexperience #detail

#newproject An early 1900 apartment that plays on the dialogue between history and modernity. The use of natural materials such as wood and marble, the careful study of colors and the relationship between light and shadows give life to a project with an elegant atmosphere suspended over time. The apartment is located in the historic center of Fondi, a small town in central Italy. In the late '50s the apartment fell into disuse until the 2018 when a young couple of entrepreneurs decided to buy it and renovate it. At the time of the purchase, the space still presented the typical twentieth century subdivision with many rooms served by a distribution corridor. The strategy of the project was to adapt the flat to the contemporary lifestyle of the young owners through large and fluid spaces while retaining some elements that recall the original character of the apartment. The leitmotif is the use of white paint and oak wood giving at the same time an essential and warm feeling to the domestic environment. - 📷 @simonebossiphotographer - More info on our web site: www.set-architects.com - #architecture #archilovers #architecturephotography #lightandshadow #interiordesign #thespaces_selects #ig_architecture #rsa_minimal #travel #interior #gominimalmag #arquitectura #minimalzine #subjectivelyobjective #noicemag #design #ourmomentum #vanishingpoint #architecturelovers #architexture #archidaily #minimalove #minimalmood #minimal_perfection #minimalism_world #mindtheminimal #unlimitedminimal #ic_minimal #minimalexperience

#SETcompetition Las Tablas Municipal Library. In an era in which technology leads to the isolation of people, the proposal for the new Municipal Library in Madrid looks at the metaphor of knowledge sharing. The arrangement of the library's interior comes from the rational organization of operations of the functional program. All spaces are arranged to ensure maximum accessibility and freedom of use, creating a noise gradient from the most informal spaces up to the quieter ones and with controlled access. - More info on our website. www.set-architects.com - @coamadrid #madrid #lastablas #library #municipal #competition #proposal #wood #thebna #theyap #minimalwood #betaarchitecture #woodarchitecture #woodinterior #librariesoftheworld #alloforarchitecture ##architecturepicture #architecture_hunter #arquitetapage #instaarch #architecture_best #chasingessence #setarchitects

#SETcompetition Las Tablas Municipal Library. In an era in which technology leads to the isolation of people, the proposal for the new Municipal Library in Madrid looks at the metaphor of knowledge sharing. Thanks to the simple volumes and the contrast between the metal surfaces of the exterior and the warmth of the interior wood, the building stands out in the surrounding urban fabric and establishes relations with the context while generating shared spaces for the community. - More info on our website: www.set-architects.com - @coamadrid #madrid #lastablas #library #municipal #competition #proposal #wood #thebna #theyap #minimalwood #betaarchitecture #woodarchitecture #woodinterior #librariesoftheworld #gold #metal #alloforarchitecture #architecturepicture #architecture_hunter #arquitetapage #instaarch #architecture_best #chasingessence #setarchitects

#tab2019 Wood is the only material used for THE NEXT SHELTER. We used CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) beams with a rectangular cross-section 5x15cm of variable length (between 2 and 8m long) that are overlapped and interlocked in an orthogonal way and then fixed using custom dowelslimiting the use of screws. The object is 4,4m height and its overall floorplan dimension are 8m on the longer side and 6,5m on the shortest one. It is composed by 224 horizontal elements and 13 vertical elements, all of them are trimmed, drilled and jointed using CNC machines. - More info on our website: www.set-architects.com - #architecturemodels #architecturemodel #beautymatters #woodpavilion #hutsandhabitats #maquette #maquettes #architecturalmodel #architecturalmodels #plastico #woodmodel #beams #shelter #phisicalmodel #phisicalmodels #wood #thebna #the_yap #next_top_architects #publicspace #sharedspace #abstractforest #archmoldel_ #woodworking #wooddesign #setarchitects #minimalwood #shelter #primitivehut #betaarchitecture

#tab2019 THE NEXT SHELTER is our proposal for the TAB Tallin Architecture Biennale Installation Programme. The project evokes in an abstract way the natural habitat in which man will live in the future: a wild refuge without preconceived rules. A quick and instinctive sign refereeing to the moment when the man had the intuition to carefully put together some wooden branches giving rise to architecture for the first time. - The project will be exhibited at the next Tallin Architecture Biennale. More info soon on our website. - @tab_2019 #beautymatters #hutsandhabitats #tabinstallation #tallinarchitecturebiennale #digitaldesign #augmentedreality #architecture #pavilion #wood #woodpavilion #thebna #the_yap #next_top_architects #publicspace #sharedspace #abstractforest #random #woodworking #wooddesign #setarchitects #minimalwood #shelter #primitivehut #betaarchitecture

House for a Saxophonist. The apartment is located in a historical building in Rome city center, in the urban context of the Rione Esquilino, facing the “Acquario Romano”. The original apartment has undergone several changes over time, decreasing the historical character and altering the original spaces. Our aim was to restore the original walls, allowing a continuous connection between each individual room, ensuring maximum permeability of the spaces. The details of the original ceiling decorations is a recurring motive: every room has a different set of decorations which characterizes the historical style of the apartment in a harmonious coexistence with the contemporary furniture and technologies. An essential intervention, capable of enhancing its history in harmony with the needs of contemporary living. - Photo @simonebossiphotographer Furniture @cantieregallidesign - More images on our website www.set-architects.com
