Architects Alice Gardini and Nicola Gibertini of GGA have expertly honed their architectural calling cards when it comes to built form. One of which is their unique ability to restore a captivating dialogue between the past and the present. Taking pride in applying locally sourced materials, such as ancient stone, to construct new, contemporary forms of living, the GGA team champion architectural reinvention and pays tribute to the local land.
HV Pavilion presents all these traits. Blurring the boundaries between the surrounding olive grove and intimate spaces within, GGA have honoured a classic geometric architectural structure through which its residents can enjoy the tranquil surroundings of the rolling Italian ‘campagna’. Compact and cohesive in proportions, HV Pavilion celebrates the local rural tradition of using dry-stone walls to ensure the building pays tribute to its rich history and is enveloped in the landscape.
