Based in the capital of the Savoy kingdom, Picco Architetti bases its practice on contextual architecture, capable of reading and rewriting the place it belongs to. The project crosses and reinterprets the needs of the territory, rethinking space starting from the signs of its past and intercepting the needs of an ever-changing society, between landmarks and mimesis, understanding and synthesis. From drawing to method, from observation to translation, the project for “living places” explores space in all its semantic dimensions: living, growing, working, from projects for school and recreational architecture to work on residential buildings, student housing and the nursing homes, up to the Lavazza space for events and the new AMIAT headquarters. A complete and transversal vision capable of transferring concepts and visions from architecture to the urban scale, of listening and translating social and physical demands between tradition and innovation, considering “sustainability” as an essential condition and an integral part of transformative thinking.
