After a construction period of only 30 days, the new school refectory for Amatrice has been realized, thanks to the fundraising organized by Corriere della Sera and TgLa7 with the initiative “Un aiuto subito”. The school refectory, designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti, has been conceived as a multifunctional space for Amatrice’s children and it will become a gathering point for the local community, where people can meet, play and, maybe, stop for a while and look at the Sibillini Mountains, framed by the wide window in the main hall.

ADA1, “An der Alster 1” in Hamburg, Germany by J. MAYER H. Architects

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects 

The building site is situated at the intersection between Hamburg’s lively downtown and  its urban landscape that is rich in water and mature trees. It is at the transition from city  to nature, and the gateway building to the bustling metropolitan core.

The horizontal striped facade with its floating “eyes” celebrates the view onto this unique  context. A public park in front of the building continues the design strategy of the facade  into the landscape. The “eyes” in the facade and the platforms in the park enable the  places to meet and contemplate.

The project area is located in the outskirts of Villafranca and Verona, between the urban core and the agricultural land.

The more distinctive presence is  the “strada della Rizza” around which is structured the small village Rizza,  that’s  a quite busy output axis of Verona.

The new building is designed as a reconstruction and expansion of a previously existing one  lying parallel to the “strada della Rizza”  and looks like an inhabited wall that protects the school from the nearby road. For this reason, it present a 3,5m high basement in concrete without any window that look like an infrastructure’s construction.
