Simone Micheli,  Oversea Building

The project architect Simone Micheli has completed for Ghirardon Group with the involvement of a number of important sponsors including Iris Ceramica and Graniti Fiandre has been described by the architect himself as “ a building overlooking the sea with a totemic profile. It is a fragment of matter intended to transform itself into a true icon linked with the dimension of environmental compatibility, capable of becoming a symbol for architectural know-how in the future.” A six-storey construction with simple lines, ring-shaped balconies and a facade like a big painting or backdrop of photovoltaic panels. Micheli says that “The intention of the “Oversea Building” project was to use its expressive power and content to bring pure oxygen into a built context full of stereotyped buildings which are all the same, flat, deaf visual dimensions, defining a new kind of symbol that would be capable of guiding new and different thoughts towards a dimension of ethical beauty”.
