Architecture Design of Benozzo Gozzoli Museum in Italy by Massimo Mariani

The Benozzo Gozzoli Museum located in south-west of Florence Italy and designed by Massimo Mariani Studio. This museum designed for Comune di Castelfiorentino with 400 square meters total area. The building, due to its small size, retains something domestic; it is conceived like a home-studio where Benozzo Gozzoli, surrounded by his students, seems to join us while we’re looking at these frescoes and he’s still working on them.
Museum Architecture Design
The building is rooted to the ground through a functional island-shaped base which solves the problem of urban furnishing meant in the classical sense. The curvilinear base takes over the space around the building and, at the same time, people take over a little of the museum’s space: the base becomes a bench, a play area for children and adults, a theatre for small outdoor events.

Architecture Design of Benozzo Gozzoli Museum
The building had to be entirely coated with cotto; in this way, it refers to materials and finishes of some of the local churches. Inside, the museum is spread over 4 floors, three above ground and one underground. The ground floor is partly characterized by a low ceiling: a shaded area which quickly runs to the full-height space where the “Tabernacolo della Visitazione” is placed. This is illuminated by a cascade of natural light coming from the skylight in the ceiling.

On the first floor, recessed into the corner-wall, we find the “Tabernacolo della Madonna della Tosse” which looks like a television screen. The staircase linking the floors, becomes a kind of visual path which frames the Tabernacles (now lacking their original context), according to new and constantly changing perspectives. It stops on the first floor, and then starts again on the opposite side thus reaching a room on the second floor, a naturally suitable space for small exhibitions and educational workshops.

The principal volume behind establishes hierarchy of the scheme; a wrapping of coloured expanded metal softens its rigid lines. To the north, the wide overhang spans the entire length of the scheme, protecting the poll support areas. The pool platform, comprising the swimming, thermal and children’s pools, is covered in warm terracotta tiles, while the pools’ interior is clad in a pattern of three blue-green hues, echoing the water’s dynamic. Energy use represents an important feature of the project. The primary energy source, thermal water, is used in the pools, but it also provides energy for the building’s other functions. – Photos by Miran Kambi?

Forest Home Design in Baraboo

A Forest home design idea by Bruns Architecture, this cool home in Baraboo, Wisconsin has a “forest feel” to it. The elegant, understated architecture doesn’t dominate its natural forest surroundings, but blends rather beautifully thanks to its low profile, simple geometry and layers of wood, concrete and glass. The wonderful use of wood both inside and out highlights the home earthy aesthetic, but in a sleek and sophisticated way. The home is heated by a hydronic radiant heat system – the lower-level concrete slab absorbs and stores the heat, which naturally radiates up to heat the main living area. On entering through the solid wood door, the main foyer offers access to a large open-concept plan that opens to the kitchen, dining and living room, all enclosed in glass with views of the forested bluff beyond. To ensure the house feels as cozy as it looks, the building envelope is made of super insulated polyurethane SIP wall and roof panels and high-performance low-E argon windows.

Rustic Style House Deep in the Forest Argentina

A sandy dune beach, dense wooded surroundings and a sloped lot created a challenging landscape on which to design and build a home, but these characteristics are also what distinguish this oddly beautiful location. The obtusely angled walls denote sheets of rock, layered with large glass walls to naturally brighten every corner of these cave-like interiors. this rustic style concrete house plan deep in the forest or Mar Azul, Argentina.

Interior Design Classic

Erin and I hit it off immediately and have continued to stay in touch over the past few months. I was so excited when she offered to do a post in my series about "What we've learned". So, here is what Erin has learned.....

"East Coast "Sensibilities" meet West Coast "Cool""

Saying the East Coast invented the "blue and white" interiors would be like saying "Al Gore invented the Internet"!... But, with that being said, the east coast in particular, the coastal areas of the northeast are known for their crisp blue and white interiors with wide white painted moldings". What defines an "east coast" interior vs. a "west coast" interior one might ask? The northeast is known for having a slightly more formal, classical, even provincial approach to interiors. Wood floors against crisp white moldings with a mix of patterns, plaids, checks and prints. West coast interiors might have more of a mix- different wood finishes, old and new elements, a mix of materials, bolder patterns, greater contrast...

When an "east coast" native finds his or herself living in sunny California, that doesn't mean that they leave behind their east coast "sensibilities" and fully embrace a California style. More often, they bring some of their "roots" with them and want to combine them with elements of California "cool". In fact, there seems to be a real need for "east coast" interiors interpreted for the west coast. I am repeatedly told there is too much beige in California. I am also told the scale of the furniture if often "too big".

I feel a real connection with both coasts. I was born and raised on the east coast of Maryland but, have always felt like I should have been born and raised in Southern California. It is the relaxed "no fuss, no muss" attitude that attracts me. Luckily, I am now in a position to appreciate both with an interiors practice with projects on both coasts.

Over the years, I have been somewhat obsessed with the topic of east coast interiors out west. I have saved magazine and newspaper clippings referencing the topic and I am going to share a few of my favorites with you. Here is a residence from the June/July 2010 issue of Traditional Home. This house, is in Newport Beach. It has a shingle style exterior and lots of windows.

I love the staircase in this home with all the beautiful wood paneling and dark floors. It is so crisp and fresh.

The dining room chairs have slipcovers with a kick-pleat skirt.

I love how in the kitchen, the homeowners did white cabinets but with red accents. A twist on the typical and very fresh. They then carried the red as an accent into the family room

In a totally different way, I love another house in the July/August 2009 Coastal Living, titled "Modern Country". It is a total she said, he said type of interior. She's from D.C. and he's from NYC. She wanted a more "formal, coastal home" and he wanted a "contemporary home with pop art".
