A Green Architect As a Friend

Have you ever thought of your home as the most effective medicine to achieve the maximum state of wellness for you and your family?
We’re talking about your entire home, every room, every corner, designed so that you can experience joy just by spending time there: a place that reconciles calm in moments of relaxation and stimulates concentration if you have to work. In short, a home that is finally the perfect den for your body and soul and that of your family.
All this is possible, and this book guides you step by step to learn more about the place where you live or where you would like to go and live. It accompanies you in learning more about your real needs and expectations with respect to this new “den” and, above all, in solving its less-performing aspects, with various solutions, both in terms of simplicity and cost, following an ancient and thousand-year-old discipline: bio-architecture.
It is a scientific approach to living, which combines beauty and essential and true care for the soul, with all the chemical, physical, and ergonomic aspects involved in serious and competent house construction. Nothing is left to chance with the IGBI – Isabella Goldmann Bio Interiors Method, developed over years of professional and scientific research.

Goldmann&Partners Indoor pollution

Indoor pollution

De Tilla M., Militerni L., Indoor pollution. Architectural, bio-legal and medical-scientific aspects of living, Goldmann I. (ed.), Architectural and environmental sustainability. The basics of the concept of sustainability of space, Goldmann I., Redaelli E., Cerveglieri G. (ed.), Architecture, bioarchitecture and medicine. Where problems resulting from indoor pollution are generated in architecture and how bioarchitecture solves them, Milan, UTET Giuridica, 2019.
This book, edited by the Umberto Veronesi Foundation, was written in collaboration with Goldmann & Partners SB, which drafted its contribution with the support of IRCAS (International Research Center for Applied Sustainability) internal protocols for verifying the level of the healthiness of living environments. A text with scientific and intellectual rigor brings to public attention the issue of indoor pollution in its most important declinations. In fact, among the many challenges that science is called upon to face today, there is one that is particularly urgent and still underestimated: research in environmental issues concerning measures to prevent and combat air pollution produced not only by external inputs but also and above all by the toxic load of accumulation that is generated indoors due to furnishings and finishing materials. The topic of Indoor Pollution is dealt with from three essential points of view: architecture and its errors that lead to a dangerous toxic load in the indoor environment, medicine and the chronic and lethal diseases that are produced as a result of the aforementioned errors, and the often backward legislative regulations that still allow such damage to be produced in architectural and plant designs.

CNMI principles for retail sustainability

The “CNMI Principles for Retail Sustainability (2017)” highlight how it is possible, at the design stage, to identify increasingly environmentally friendly, people health-friendly, and energy-conscious solutions, finding improving features in materials and finishes while respecting the individual concept stores designed by each brand.
Compiled by the research center IRCAS (Intl. Research Centre for Applied Sustainability) of Goldmann & Partners with the endorsement of the National Institute of Bioarchitecture and the sponsorship of the Textile and Health Association, the document, which summarizes in a simple and immediately applicable manner all the practices that can lead to the above results, is the result of the work of a Retail Sustainability Technical Working Group led by Isabella Goldmann of Goldmann & Partners and made up of representatives from fifteen Italian fashion brands including Ermenegildo Zegna, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Versace, and from the Sustainability Working Table that includes, in addition to the brands mentioned above, other representatives from some of the most prominent Italian companies operating in the sector, [Bottega Veneta, Fendi, Loro Piana, Moncler, OTB, Tod’s and Valentino].

The ultimate goal is to stimulate the development of a more innovative and sustainable retail space architecture, attentive to both indoor well-being and sustainability in all its aspects, environmental but also anthropic, energy, economic, and management, to name but a few of the elements considered in the prepared document.
