a sustainable future begins with an appreciation of the past un futuro sostenibile inizia dal recupero del nostro passato
Veraldi Renouard emphasizes the relationship between modern intervention and the existing built and natural environment.
As strong believers in sustainable design principles, we advocate the use of local materials and technologies, attention to detail, the importance of researching historical context, integration of buildings within their landscapes, and client or community involvement in the design process.
Our strong familiarity with historic urban development patterns influences our work; our passion for the dynamic qualities that characterize established public spaces inspires our designs for meaningful architecture. Each design site is seen as a multi-layered result of continuum transformations.
Our projects create new layers designed to respond to and bring out the intrinsic potential of place while addressing specific functional needs.
We believe in the importance of connecting every design to the human history, the particular character, and the natural environment of a specific place. Through the understanding of Genius Loci, the intrinsic quality of place, and direct observation and dialogue with communities and users, we are able to create meaningful spaces that both communicate with the past and look forward to a sustainable future.
