AVA’s project Retro67 in Beirut Lebanon is a finalist at the THE PLAN AWARD 2017 in the category mixed use.
Every project we do starts with a thorough research of the place we are working at, because every place has a unique story to tell either because of the context or rich cultural background. “Retro67” perhaps wants to communicate even more its strong relation to Beirut.
Wolfgang Schober from Spirit Magazine wrote a very interesting article about Andrea Vattovani and the story of AVA, as well as the most important projects we are working on in our practice. A big part is dedicated to the wonderful project Retro67 for Beirut which we are very proud of in the office.
Our beautiful project, the revitalisation of a wonderful old farm house, originally built in 1838, in the south of Styria was published int the Grazetta magazine. G-farm is a project we love to show and one of those projects which sum up the most our respect for historical buildings.
“A good architect needs to know how to respect and preserve valuable buildings”
Andrea Vattovani emotional talk at TEDx Graz. It was very interesting to go back in time and sum up all important moments of the career so far. Andrea talked about identity from personal and professional point of view and its meaning for our cities. A journey trough several important moments like the first widely published project, receiving the prize in the Liget Budapest Competition, one of the major worldwide competitions in the last years, and finally the project Retro67 for Masharii and Archstone Capital planned to break ground in 2017.
Andrea Vattovani Architecture was invited to take part to an international competition in Cyprus. The developer Masharii and Terra shortlisted three out of 11 International Practices. AVA than have been awarded with the third prize with their concept for Luxury flats directly on the beach of Limassol, a destination considered to become the third most visited worldwide in the next years.
Andrea Vattovani of AVA will talk at this year TEDx in Graz at the 25th of November 2016. Andreawill take us on a journey through his ideas and projects dealing specifically with identities. Nowadays due to rapid globalization, architecture is losing identity which results in loss of culture and global diversity. His aim is to communicate the importance of keeping different cultures alive and respecting local traditions while still learning from each other and acting on a global level.
Andrea Vattovani Architecture has been awarded as “Most distinguished architecture design studio of 2016” by the UK based BUILD Magazine as part of their 2016 Architectural Awards. We are very pleased that our hard work has been recognized and awarded , especially for the year 2016 in which we strived to bring our practice to another level.
“This year we have been growing much and this award is just the confirmation of our hard work”
