Modern architecture in Italy showcases the talent, visionary spirit, and ingenuity of Italian architects and designers. In any country where you can find UNESCO World Heritage sites and iconic landmarks, and historic places everywhere, contemporary architecture risks taking a background role. But Italy is not just any country. Here, architecture and design are so embedded in the fabric of everyday living, that even a simple coffee maker becomes a design icon. So it comes as no surprise that modern architecture in Italy can (more than) hold its own alongside world-famous buildings.

 

On this page, you can get a glimpse at the creativity and avant-garde style of many Italian architects. From residential houses to urban housing projects and cozy mountain cabins, here you will find many gems of modern architecture in Italy. These projects are as varied as their designs; they include a renovated and redesigned lighthouse; minimalist Corten steel retreats; mountain chalets that blend rustic and contemporary design; a photo essay of modern churches; ingenious one-room cabins nestled in nature; and sculptural houses that complement mountainous landscapes with dynamic silhouettes and angular angles.

 

Stone, wood, steel, and concrete. Modern architecture in Italy showcases the creative potential of ubiquitous materials through imaginative projects. While they celebrate tradition and the heritage of age-old Italian craftsmanship, these projects are also cutting-edge. Large boulders become a part of the architecture while antique wooden beams and wall panels complement sleek furniture and angular lighting. In a coastal area, an ultra-minimalist house features open living spaces that put the focus on the sea and sky views, while in Milan, an S-shaped apartment building clad in light travertine becomes a new landmark of the city and an illustration of a new era of urban reinvention.
