ight, volume, materials: there are many factors which affect the perception of a space and they should never be overlooked. It’s with this in mind that architect Ico Migliore of Studio Migliore+Servetto introduced us to his unique design method.
Spatial planning isn’t just about dimensions, in fact it also analyses the soul and history of a space. Every single home, setting and material has a precise identity and this should be understood and valued.
Have you ever thought if a specific material evokes a particular feeling? Can you identify a certain type of flooring or cladding with a specific scent or sound? Does your home interact with the outdoors, the climate and the changing seasons? According to Ico Migliore, this is precisely what you should be asking yourself before starting a new project.
Plus, he has stressed that there aren’t any set rules. You should let all the different aspects of a project guide you. It’s only by doing so that you'll be able to design a space which speaks of you and “lives with you”, basically your ideal home.
