Stone building – Apricena
The building is located in Apricena, the city of stone. The idea of the project is to use local stone, enhancing its different shades and materiality. The shape and design of the facade follow the function that develops inside. The chromatic contrast of the two types of stone adopted cancels the dissymmetry of the elevations. The reddish color of the peel (laid to run) with an irregular thickness, perfectly matches the light worked stone.
The contours of the doors and windows are very thick and protruding from the coating. The outline of the building, highlighted by the thick stone, becomes the generating element of the project. Glass and steel embellish its architecture. The choice of grazing LED lighting accentuates the materiality of the coating. Each element of the facade architecture is easy to read.
