Simón García - Project - SCHOOL EXTENSION " TERESIANAS - GANDUXER " It is the extension of the Teresianas School of the Ganduxer street.


Because of its heritage value, the passage of time and the various education reforms, the school has been left without enough classroom space or recreational covered areas. The new extension re-locates all grades and provides the school with new covered sports space with the necessary infrastructure to provide a service to the school and extracurricular activities. It has been a challenge to design a new building in an environment with the uniqueness and significance of the current Teresianas School. It was decided to locate the project on the best place of the plot that would not affect the visibility of the pavilion designed by Antoni Gaudí. The volume respects the height and distance of the surrounding buildings and links to the existing sports hall. lighting elements into school. Feld72 - Project - Kindergarten Terenten.

Non a caso si affaccia su una location eccezionale, Piazza Bodoni, tra le più belle e ariose del capoluogo piemontese. Questa, infatti, porta il nome del creatore dell’omonimo font serif, riconoscibile per il forte contrasto tra le linee spesse e quelle sottili. Ed è proprio il carattere Bodoni ad essere il filo conduttore dell’interior design, un mix sapiente di grafica, riciclo creativo e oggetti industriali personalizzati. Architettura e tipografia: quando il lettering fa parlare gli edifici.

Although this had made the house bigger, it had also become increasingly inward-looking. The expanding wings were steadily enclosing the heart of the house with the hall and living quarters, and direct contact between the house and the magnificent surroundings was largely lost. The original detailing and material form were consistently adhered to during all previous interventions but the result was now thoroughly outmoded and of a poor technical quality. The house has now been given its fourth look.

The principle guiding this most recent intervention being to create a house that is much more sustainable and able to reinstate the lost relationship between it and the landscape.

Dois volumes conectados e de composição e materiais contrapostos formam a estrutura básica da casa. Dispostos segundo um eixo longitudinal ao terreno e implantados de forma a não interferir no seu perfil natural, estes volumes tiram partido da grande cobertura vegetal existente no local, buscando estabelecer sua área de vivência no espaço compreendido entre o solo e as copas das árvores. O volume principal, um salão de 9.40 x 4.00 x 3.00 m, é delimitado por uma leve estrutura de madeira ( jatobá ) e fechado com painéis de policarbonato alveolar que, por suas qualidades de transparência, proporcionam uma interessante relação com o ambiente em torno. Esta pele translúcida cede à transparência do vidro em uma das quinas do volume, selecionando uma vista particular do lago. Local. Schermata 2014 07 28 a 18 16 35. Schermata 2014 07 16 a 00 26 01.
