Apartment building

Firenze, 1978

Alberto Breschi



An isolated building on the peripheral margin of the city is treated in such a way as to assume a strong character, capable of connoting the surrounding area: the curved shape of the space for the stairway and lift built, like the balconies-terraces, in a brutalist style using exposed cement, and the contrasting use for the rest of the building of a plaster in an intense dark green colour, are the linguistic elements chosen for this purpose.
