Heron: “I started the new project to meet a common request in my professional path, i.e. to design a collection of storage units. But in this case the term common immediately proved to be inappropriate, since I did not begin to deal with a storage unit or furniture company, but more appropriately with a manufacturer of structures. Small mechanical engineering, consisting of details that start from a different research compared to what I consider a “commonness”. A rational architecture on a domestic scale; an atypical storage unit project, at least for me. A new experience.”
