deep purple by fuksas architects

massimiliano + doriana fuksas propose ‘deep purple’.
more than a refuge to us it seems to be a summer house for rich people with huge gardens,
while fuksas refers to his childhood dream of possessing a treehouse.

  • MOLTO BELLO E ROMANTICO. PERò IN CASO DI EMERGENZA NON POTREBBE ESSERE REALIZZATO. MEGLIO ALTRE SOLUZIONI PER SCONFIGGERE IL FREDDO E PER PROTEGGERSI IN CASO DI DISASTRO, NO???

    LAURA says:
  • I would like see massimiliano and beloved talented wife after a monsoon be moved to their house.
    I think that their concept is with out the dignity that suffering people need.
    try it again!
