From the Architects:

The pdv/01 project is a small showroom, approximately 250sqm with the design center for a company specialized in cloth industry. Was asked to design in propose to accommodate samples of textiles and finished goods as well as creative space where designers are able to reflect on their “crafts”. The main requirement of the client is to have space in relationship with environment and in case of events to unite inside and outside spaces. The site of the project is inside a terrain which is located within an area of great landscape value where over the years the building have built up randomly and with no architectural quality. First of all, we are versed to build an architectural work that is able to act as a flywheel in area with architectural identity related to poor quality of construction. So, this project represent for us the change in the current landscape where the need to become a place is replaced by the identity of a non-place.
