PICCO Architetti, the quality of architecture
PICCO Architetti combines practice and research with urban and architectural design, designing places to live, innovative complex plans and programs, through a methodology attentive to the quality of architecture and the complexity of the processes involved in its achievement.
The firm specializes in residential projects, focusing in particular on social and public housing, many of which have already been built, paying attention to the delicate balance between quality, comfort and affordability.
PICCO Architetti is committed to renewing and diversifying the issues on which to discuss, is characterized by a continuous experimentation and research of the architectural and urban project.
The whole team makes use of consolidated professional support and specialist contributions (environment, landscape, graphics, systems) with a design methodology that pays particular attention to the aspects of use of innovative materials and technologies.
Many private and public complexes are designed and built, from the urban scale to construction, also within innovative and participatory urban plans and programs, as in the case of Complesso area Ex-Shiva.
The design of social residences tries to fit into the surrounding environment, taking into account and exploiting those areas that have never been used and, often left abandoned, in such a way as to create a totally new environment, but liveable at best.
The feature which is most taken into consideration is the creation of an easily habitable place, where to establish and preserve social relationships, which lead to the creation of that collectivity / community which is increasingly being lost. Undoubtedly they are the protagonists of social scene in Italy.
