DFA Partners studio selected the Provoak by Provenza collection for the ambitious residential project "I Chiostri" created with Emilgroup ventilated facades.
The project used the Provoak collection in an innovative way, ensuring a harmonious continuity of surfaces and making full use of the potential and flexibility of the ceramic material. Right for this reason, the project won in the Evolution category of the Emilgroup Project Awards 2022.
Right on the occasion of the EPA 2022 award ceremony, held at our premises on 26 September 2022, we had the opportunity to interview Arch. Andrea Lapasini, partner and head of the design area of DFA Partners.
1. How does it feel to have been awarded among hundreds of architecture and interior design projects?
We are very proud and happy to have won the Emilgroup Project Awards 2022 in the Evolution category. We are aware that porcelain stoneware is a material used in most architectural projects, so to have been chosen among all these projects makes us realise that we have done a really good job. We are very happy to have been able to enhance your products.
2. What led you to select our collections for your project?
For our "I Chiostri di Milano" project, we were looking for a material that would allow us to best clad the entire residential complex. We wanted a product that would recall the elegance of wood but at the same time could withstand the weather and air of Milan. The choice took some time, we made a thorough technical study of the quality of the material. Emilgroup collections and in particular the Provoak by Provenza one met all our needs.
