Young architects who see architecture as a means of mass communication: they are Nicola Lunardi, Veronica Rusca and Lorenzo Trompetto the creative souls of gosplan, a studio based in Genoa.
Architecture means production of forms, a story about space and, like any means of communication, is based not only on the transmitted message but on establishing new connections: connections between forms, concepts, people.
Their latest project is called ‘Into the wood’, a house in the countryside near Genoa surrounded by a chestnut wood;
the project changed this one-directional principle by demolishing half of this corridor – and introducing a cross-shaped furniture that manages the whole house introducing a second direction. This furniture contains a staircase that connects to an attic upstairs. The solution introduced by the team gave the project a new spatial and functional configuration.
The whole project deals with few materials and colors: The floor is covered by grey wooden floorboards in the living room and in the master bedroom, while the kitchen and the other rooms have a grey micro-cement flooring.
