AF517 – Atelier Femia, a new concept of living
AF517 addresses the issue of contemporaneity, studying the relationship between the city, the territory and the architecture, building a relationship as a way to give shape to reality. Visionary pragmatism that feeds reality with its own imaginary and believes in the imaginary as a means to get in touch with reality.
The perception and transformation of reality are the cornerstones of an idea of architecture as a body and enigma, realistic and emotional, pragmatic and sensual, shareable and capable of creating amazement as a mechanism of knowledge.
According to AF517, the project is seen as an opportunity for encounter and comparison, which is measured over time and for time, making the chronotopic dimension one of the objectives of the research. Thanks to this dialogue is a project tool and the project is a dialogue tool.
The design idea of creating a series of social buildings stems from the explicit desire to create a relationship with the surrounding context and landscape. In a succession of ideas, want to dialogue with nature in a unitary way in the eyes of the observer.
The project develops by analyzing the different potentials: the atmosphere, the environmental needs and the formal game made up of a series of cutouts and openings.
The desire to give visual continuity and ensure that the buildings dialogue with nature, characterized by the use of matter and light.
An overall transformation and redevelopment of the chosen place takes place, placing the building in a context where it is most requested, creating a place so totally livable.
Unity, urban rhythm, classic vertical layering, unique material, these elements distinguish the work of the AF517 atelier.
