In the hinterland of Varese, the area of an abandoned former factory is converted into a residential complex.
The idea: “suspend” the ground of the intervention so as not to perceive the noises of road traffic and mend the perspective view towards the neighboring historical park. Inside, a new light contemporary landscape welcomes the residences. Few materials, few tree species: Cornus florida rubra and Betula utilis allow to create a beautiful and harmonious space.
Nature is expressed through one of its elements: the leaf. The palmate maple becomes, in fact, the “life motive” of the equipped areas and all around a new green condominium surface is entirely built on the slab and resolved in a contemporary key.

Much more than an office of landscape architecture, it is an open space towards the street, and thus capable of a continuous exchange between our world of ideas and the outside real life. The office of Patrizia Pozzi is meant to be the expression of a perfect balance between architecture and landscape, including the urban space. The district of Milan where it is placed – Porta Venezia – is one of the most lively and vibrant of the city. The office adsorbs what happens around and gives it back enriched by new vibrant energy, being a natural element in constant growth, mutation and evolution.
