The IDF Habitat Headquarters in Champigny-sur-Marne is now completed

Extreme organizational flexibility, attention to environmental quality and an accurate interpretation of the setting: these are the main features of IDF Habitat Headquarters, recently completed in Champigny-sur-Marne, 15 km far from the heart of Paris. Designed by Piuarch, Stefano Sbarbati and Incet Ingénierie, it is characterized by an L-shaped plan and a silhouette that varies in height. Furthermore, each side reacts to the existing surrounds through a relationship of solid and empty spaces: at the entrance, the façade is a permeable screen completely covered by glass hidden behind a system of loggias of varying heights. The south, west and east façade are instead more compact with a tight rhythm of vertical openings. Made of concrete cast onsite and then smoothed, the architectural envelope integrates the construction system and makes the inner space free, with the result of a flexible layout.

Piuarch celebrates opening of M89 Hotel in Milan

2.500 sqm, 50 double rooms, 5 suite and a panoramic restaurant on the top floor: these are the main features of M89 Hotel, a new four-star destination opened in May 2017 in Milan. The building faces the factory halls that one hundred ago hosted one of the leading aviation companies and which are now home to Gucci, after a meticulous renovation and expansion project by Piuarch. The dialogue with the surrouding urban fabric also defines the project: the ground floor features a wide glass wall with a metal grate, at the same height of the industrial buildings as an ideal extension of the permeable façade on the street. The roof, instead, reinterprets the industrial shed system in a contemporary way while the grey façade establishes a visual connection with the six-storey tower of the new Gucci Headquarters. Inside, the design is essential and is based on an elegant contrast between anthrax grey, white, green and walnut.
