if he were one of the five senses, he would be the sixth.
sensitivity in interpreting the needs of those who will live in a home pushes mirko moriggi to the essence of the spontaneity of living with projects dedicated to feeling good about oneself, designed to excite and welcome.
if he were a form, he would be a container of light.
the preference goes to solid and regular architectural forms that, when they meet, generate new ways of living that harmoniously adapt to everyday living. large windows punctuate the walls and cancel the boundaries with the outside ensuring light and nature are mirrored on the inside.
if he weren’t an architect, he would be an illusionist.
houses do not need much furniture but their function. thus wall screens are born, and enchantment “containers” disappear from view, creating airy, life- simplifying environments.
