Milanese architectural firm Cino Zucchi Architetti (Cino Zucchi, Nicola Bianchi, Andrea Viano) presented the draft of a multi-storey residential building in Ravenna, standing on the shore of an artificial channel that is used as a port for ships with industrial goods. The project is designed to offer long-term development of the area of the city: two-way front and opens to the street, and to the waterfront, which later can turn into a major pedestrian area.
The residential complex is distinguished by a sharp stroke of geometric shapes. Planning permission granted and partially occupied by small passage that connects the city and waterfront. Landscaped ramp by which the parking is hidden, leading to the center's observation deck overlooking the river. On the first floor in the area of universal access for the convenience of visitors to the site to open several stores, says "ugmk.info".
The facade is decorated with rectangular panels of different shades of the color of white clay to cobalt blue, and the randomness of their location relative to each other at the same time distorts the spatial perception of the object and helps it blend in more urban areas.
Having said environmental his project, the architects paid special attention to its orientation to the sun, as well as ensure that the panels of the facade provided a passive cooling and natural lighting of the building. On the terrace on the roof installed solar panels, reducing the consumption of electricity from conventional sources. A layer of plaster reinforced plastic grid on the walls of the building serves as additional insulation to the conservation of natural air circulation. All materials used in finishing the house, suitable for recycling or reuse.
