Scuola La Santa
In collaboration with ITI Studio
When regarding the fate of the existing school, the arguments of demolition prevail against the apparently right decision of restoring, for versatile reasons of obsolescence.
The existing building is not only obsolete from a constructive, energetic and sustainable point of view, but also in terms of public image.
In dialogue with the immediate surroundings, the longitudinal new volume reinforces the urban nature of Via Sara Frontini, defining clearer boundaries. Besides, it establishes a relationship with the much-admired Bottogno School on the opposite side, through set of ramps and a luminous in-between terrace.
