The project consists of an adaptation of a public building to the modern demands of Parco della Vauda Institution for creating an environment
The project consists of the adaptation of a public building to the modern needs of the Vauda Park. Establishment for the creation of an ecological complex of 600 sqm organized on two floors with the same surface.
At the ground floor of the building there is an open space entrance which allows access to an exhibition area, offices and toilet blocks. The entrance also connects to the stairs block, to the conference room and library located on the first floor.
The goal of the recovery project is to insert itself within a rural context, maintaining an autonomous architectural language without fake traditional stylistic references, but at the same time integrating itself with a harmonious composition of volumes. Therefore, all the false and incongruous elements of the original building have been eliminated, leading a correct full-empty ratio of the main façade. It was then proceeded to shorten the main volume to better fit it into the net of the small-town center. These interventions have been aimed at balancing the composition of the volumes of the buildings involved.
Two architectural elements characterize the main facades behaving like two lanterns. These two cantilevered windows create a contact between inside and outside connecting the users to passers-by.
By the environmental point of view, energy cooling system, advanced ventilation technologies, shading system and an Exterior Insulation and Finishing System (EIFS) allow the building to achieve a high energy class.
To improve a complete integration between the building and the context, an intervention on the closer municipal warehouse was also carried out, covering it with corten steel panels. Regarding this issue, the painting materials and colors choice follow an accurate analysis of local examples to recall the traditional colors of the context.
