The evocation of a traditional archetype, through a contemporary principle.
Designed by Italian architects Massimo Gnocchi and Paolo Danesi, the project acts as a contemporary interpretation of old traditional mountain refuges, bringing in architectural character and spatial quality.
The Refuge aims to finding balance between sustainability and design, yet it does not want to become a design item, nor a technological system.
