VIVERE by Calzà, Geniuzzi, and Banal Architetti Associati


VIVERE is a project for Whiteline Hotels by trioCalzà, Geniuzzi, and Banal Architetti Associati. Bold, crisp, unimposing, yet every bit subtle and sophisticated, Vivere lets the landscapes carved by the glaciers take a Zen-like centre stage, mindfully complementing + respecting the surrounds with a fabulously modernist low-rise build.



“Crisp, cuboid structures frame the ancient vineyards, whilst generous open spaces dissolve the barriers of the internal and external – allowing nature to flood the place with the scents, sights + sounds. We loved the contrasts and the clever usage of local stonewalling with rusted steel panels – raw elements that act as a protective skin whilst lending an appearance of age, substance and seriousness.”



“Here you naturally sense that you are close to Lake Garda at the foothills of the Arco Mountains and you sense that this is a private place crafted with passion and respect.”

A 100% GREEN HOUSE by Denieuwegeneratie


clippings : Nestled in nature, but close enough to Amsterdam, the house is 100% green and resembles a playground full of droll but hyper-functional details. Here is just one example – the residential part has a small window which opens directly onto the barn, so that you can check for fresh eggs for breakfast.

THE NOLITAN HOTEL by Grzywinski+Pons


WeHeart : There’s sumptuous luxury, there’s du jour style, there’s indulgence and sophistication, and there’s the location; North Of Little Italy – bordered by SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown, the Bowery and the Lower East Side – is definitely one of Manhattan’s hippest spots.
