Giulio Barazzetta, Sergio Gianoli - SBG Architetti
Nostra Signora della Misericordia Parish Church Baranzate, Milano (Italia)
An excellent structural restoration project on a significant modern work, completed using contemporary materials and cutting-edge application techniques in order to effectively recreate the constitutive elements of the original architecture. Used for the church flooring, the porcelain stoneware tiles – which are carefully selected and expertly adapted to suit the existing structure in terms of their modular dimensions (which reflect those of the existing build), morphological appearance, surface texture and colourations – make a big contribution to improving the overall quality of the building.
