Looking to the request of a reabilitation of an old court house, the new project seeks to evoke the history and tradition through shapes and materials. So the propose consist in a simple volume that remind the effect of full and empty spaces typical of the old houses with barn. Two massive walls protect the enclosure, shielded by blinds in wood and iron in the transparent parts. A vertical cut that cross all the floors create a constant dialogue between the spaces and a well of natural light; on the ground floor the interior spaces are mixed with the external creating hybrid situations such as an indoor garden and an outdoor seating area. The project totally respects the principles of bioclimatic architecture.
