rēs[eco]architecturae is a new architectural practice founded by Flavia Restaldi while between Paris and Rome that looks for environmentally friendly solutions:

from the spoon to the town (Richard Roger) across the sea.

The very name rēs[eco]architecturae embodies the global vision of inhabiting today’s world complexity and finds its roots in the first European languages, the Latin and Greek:

res, rei  |οἶκος oikos | architectura,-ae, meaning the things of ecological architecture.

The setting, an inhabited ecosystem, is like a harbour. It is the starting and the end point. It is a resource to develop and nurture both during and after the docking.

Each project is like a sailing trip. The discovery and the knowledge generate a precise and systematic analysis that reveals the genius loci, the memories of living and stratified matters as the main source of inspiration.​

Every question, every situation, every story is by definition unique and as such requires a unique answer. 

The sea inspires the architecture: rēs[eco]architecturae is like a sailing boat. It needs wind and sailors in order to advance. The wind is its force and the sailors are its mind-set. Sometimes the boat is against the winds that drift it away from the goal, the island, that is, the project’s potential outcome. ​

However, the crew knows tacking to get to its final destination.
