Musing on ‘everydayness’ and the squeezed modernist space standards underpinning San Siro, the project speculates on the creation of a new ‘neighbourhood luxury’; taking the functions of the everyday and elevating them to become spatially and temporally luxurious. Drawing from the context, three forms of luxury are conceptualised – dining, bathing, and imagining – each interpreted in multiple forms of private, semi-private, and collective luxury. These begin to alter the rigid urban grain of San Siro, deconstructing and reinhabiting a pair of concrete frames, and redefining a new street edge – announcing the gift of time and space for the everyday back to the residents of San Siro.
As a key part of the thesis, the Design Manifesto outlined the intentions and research of the project.
