Part of Luigi Rosselli Architects practice has always been to test new ideas and improve on previous work. Each new project should always forge new ground and experiment to build on a cache of tried and tested ideas that form the foundations for each project. This research and development approach to architecture has led to the development of entirely new methods and materials. For example, in the 1990s Luigi Rosselli Architects asked Marblo Industries to develop resin based surfaces that have the translucency of resin and unlimited colour choices. The product is now exported all over the world.
Development of aluminium wall cladding profiles or rammed earth cooling systems are approached in the same inquisitive ways as building components such as fireplaces, awnings and stairs.
This section looks at experimentations and variations in particular typologies, as well as projects that require the formation of new ideas or materials to produce the best possible outcome.
