Exterior stone louvers on Stone Block Building [080]

The main idea of the project is based on the creation of a "mutant façade": a skin of mobile panels made of Carrara marble that is able to completely trasform the appearance of the block.

This ability to change transforms the residential complex into a sort of urban sculpture the appearance of which varies depending on the time of the day; in this way, at night, light irradiates from the interior of the dwellings, while during the day the façade appears pierced by numerous small vertical openings.

A skin of marble panels, some of them pivoting, wraps the entire volume of this residential block.
