Riva dei Sette Martiri
When the sun appears over the horizon and the sea is calm, its tiny reflections give the sensation that time and life are standing still, waiting for someone to wake them up. However, Venice is just the opposite, it is that lively, colorful city, that, like time, is wearing out.
Like that wave that never remains constant, on which the elements act and whose movement invades the tranquility of the city.
Reducing the moments lived to small waves in time.
The formal composition emerges after an analysis of the Venetian palaces.
Apart from the concept of movement, we rely on a faithful reinterpretation of the common aspects:
Rhythmic and luminous facades
Structure perpendicular to the facade
Structure in ornamentation
Pale pink color tones
Open / closed proportion
Lookouts above the portico
