Urban planning in the post-pandemic era: 20-minute neighbourhoods

The pandemic is changing our cities, but above all the way we live in them. And now that the transformation is under way, it is natural to wonder how the spaces of everyday life will evolve, which not only connect us with necessary services but also shape us as human beings. 
If we follow European and global trends, the answer may lie in the theory of “20-minute neighbourhoods” - or “15-minute cities” - where all the services which are essential for daily life, health, learning and the development of one's inclinations and passions are located no further than a 20-minute walk - or bike ride - from one's home, with access to areas easily accessible to pedestrians and cyclists.

Garden Design is the art of designing and landscaping gardens, parks and green spaces, a skill that is increasingly requested to professionals in the sector.

Far from being a purely decorative element, a garden represents a place where people can connect with nature, enjoying the physical and psychological benefits that contact with greenery provides. For this reason, the organisation of the green space, besides reflecting the aesthetic sense of the designer or owner, should be based on a well-defined project that takes into account some fundamental variables like the surroundings, the climate and the time available for its maintenance.

Taking care of outdoor spaces during the cold season: tips for winter outdoors

 

While we are used to spending time in the garden or on the terrace outdoors during the summer, enjoying nature at its most lush and lively, there is no reason why the space has to go into hibernation once the winter comes.

Moreover, taking care of your garden or balcony during the winter will let you have the outdoor space of your dreams once the summer is back.

Protecting the spaces against the elements, doing some maintenance on the structures and carefully choosing materials and furnishing accessories are fundamental activities when talking about a garden or a terrace. Let's take a look at some tips for beautiful winter outdoors.

Enjoying outside spaces more: how to use the outdoors

Having a nice garden or a terrace, whether big or small, means being able to enjoy the surrounding natural space without straying too far from the comfort of home. If you then decide to protect your outdoors with outdoor covers, you will create an environment to enjoy more freely throughout the year.
Bioclimatics, pergolas and sun sails are an excellent solution to create protected, sheltered areas. But not only that: they also allow the outside to be transformed into functional outdoor areas where it is possible to carry out activities en plein air. Versatile and practical environments where you can bring to life projects and desires for an outdoor space tailored to your needs.

What are the pros and cons of a homemade outdoor space?

A well-organised and properly protected outdoor space offers many advantages, most importantly the possibility of having extra space to enjoy a multifunctional environment to be used many months a year

Of course, to enjoy your outdoor space it is essential to create a sheltered area by setting up a cover – like a pergola – that can protect against the sun and bad weather. Since this is usually a small structure, in particular in the home sector, and built for the exclusive purpose of creating a shaded area without affecting the surrounding landscape, many people decide to opt for a DIY pergola, without contacting specialists in the industry.

How to make a practical garden: 5 tips to keep in mind

While it is true that there are wonders like the Palace of Versailles, the Villa d'Este in Tivoli, the Butchart Gardens in Canada and many others, when it comes to the outdoors, especially in the private sector, there is no such thing as a "perfect garden".

Wall-mounted pergola: a space-saving solution

The garden, the terrace or the balcony are extensions of our home that deserve to be experienced not only in summer but throughout the year and in any weather conditions.

However, there is not always enough space to add elements typical of outdoor living.

Hygge: the Scandinavian furnishing style that will warm your heart

Your home is your private space, where every room should reflect your tastes and personality, allowing you to fully enjoy every environment alone or sharing it with family and friends.

So comfort and togetherness above all: two concepts that are very dear to the Scandinavians who have been able to transform enjoyment of small daily pleasures into a real lifestyle, a philosophy so important for them that it finds its full expression in the word "hygge", an ancient Danish word that literally means "feeling satisfied", but that in reality expresses much more. Hygge means being together in an intimate and welcoming atmosphere, setting aside problems and maintaining a positive attitude. Hygge is a relaxing dinner with your loved ones, welcoming friends to the house, sipping a tea in front of the crackling fireplace or a beautiful view.

An approach to life that is also reflected in furnishing, breathing life into a real Hygge Style. So let's see what the characteristics of this Scandinavian furnishing style are and how to implement it at home.

Climbing plants for gazebos: the right choices for an enchanting pergola with flowers

Summer offers the chance to fully enjoy the beauty of the season, spending pleasant moments immersed in nature. If you have a garden, the best choice is to equip it with a gazebo or a pergola that lets you create an open-air living space, an area connecting your home with the outdoors. Indeed, back in ancient Rome where the art of gardening was widespread, it was customary to wrap fruit trees with ivy and vines that when connected with other trees formed evocative pergolas. So once you've chosen, the most suitable structure for your needs from among the outdoor covers, why not make it more dynamic and appealing by decorating it with climbing plants for gazebos?

Verandas for balconies: types, solutions and regulations

Those who live in cities or on the upper floors of a building often don't have the opportunity to enjoy the comfort of a garden and live moments of relaxation outside their home. For this reason, if you have a balcony or a terrace, it's very important to be able to make the most of it, not only during the summer but also in winter. Verandas for balconies that completely or partially close the terrace allow you to better connect the balcony to the rest of the house, creating an environment that can be enjoyed at any time of day. Depending on the size of the balcony and your needs, the veranda can be used as a living area furnished with sofas and armchairs, or it can be transformed into a charming dining room with a panoramic view. Or the veranda can be a corner for studying, a fitness area, or more simply become a small greenhouse where you can take care of flowers and plants sheltered from the elements.

Women in architecture: a chat with the architect Giulia Sacchetta in Corradi's Marketing & Communications area

"Architecture is a way of thinking and not a job", said the great architect Le Corbusier. This is absolutely true, so much so that now like never before an education in architecture represents an added value, versatile and transversal, able to inspire with an overview of many sectors, from communications to outdoor living, not focused exclusively on operational and design phases. Within this fruitful blend of knowledge it is interesting to explore the contribution of women architects, which is also expressed in an approach and in a sensitivity that are neither better nor worse but certainly different from those of men. The number of women architects is increasing all over the world (in Italy they account for 42% of the total), making "the woman question" in architecture an interesting topic to be studied in all its many nuances.
