L’AgoRA’: a project of a widespread HOTEL, a CONDHOTEL, and a SUSTAINABLE ORGANIC FARM into an eastern Liguria Village
How to revitalize a village enhancing peace, nature, history, future prospects, and synergies of contemporary civilization.
L’AgoRA Project intends to regenerate the values that have made the conservation of the environment in synergy with human needs to defeat the agent that caused the abandoning of marginal territories and the consequent degradation of buildings, and of the agricultural substratum that constituted the economic engine of environment ; it is a choral project in which the right alchemy of proportions is sought between sustainable tourism, organic farming and the recovery of environment.
The project is developed by MyArching, an Italian team that has built itself through a progressive implementation of skills holders in the architectural, structural, plant, territory and its morphology (read agronomy, geology, landscape architecture and earth sciences).
“For a house that is worth!”
In L’AgoRA’ project it has been implemented in a sustainable architecture design and conservation approach. For this reason the most possible local materials reuse has been selected as main strategy. That’s why the project maximizes the use and preservation of existing materials and infrastructure, so reducing waste, and preserving the historic character of the old town. The energy embedded in the existing buildings of L’Ago is significant like the embedded energy the L’AgoRA’ project is aiming to save during maintenance and operations, for the entire life of the buildings. We believe that Sustainability begins with preservation. Taking into account historic buildings’ original climatic adaptations, today’s sustainable building materials and technologies can supplement inherent sustainable features without compromising unique historic character.

MyArching (CEO Massimiliano ing. Lusetti) is based in a sharing network method. Searching on acheaving a capillary presence in the whole Italian territory, in order to offer to customers, increasingly performing projects at the right price and with the right skills, combining an efficient virtual network with an equally fundamental human network, in which the personal relationship did not go into the background but rather the aggregating engine.
group has participated in various design competitions and public tenders, shared small and important projects made by individual components and adapting the team involved in each project according to the changing needs and results the client was looking for. The gallery of some of the most significant projects is available on website.
The philosophy that differentiates the group from the classic professional approach is included in the Pay-off of MyArching logo: “for a house that is worth”. In these few words is condensed the meaning of our team work through any project.
