Filling an historic void with memory and empathy
Our proposal is very clear and is defined in a few words: a simple and balanced building is born in an urban emptiness, that dynamizes a historical center with its program but that keeps the city breathing with the public spaces that it offers. The clear and unequivocal materiality aims to translate both in a close language as a traditional and stony homogeneity of the historic city and memory of local construction.
