Font Del Roure Nursery And Primary School In Barcelona, Spain

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: ONL Arquitectura

In this case there were several prefabricated modules already on the site, which helped determine the location of the school. In contrast to other Nurseries and Primary Schools we did in the past, we had to make this design more compact, replacing the large central patio for a regular series of patios to enlarge the visual perception of the ground floor passages, and to create a place where the two different age groups could come together.

Funeral Chapel in Turin, Italy by Raimondo Guidacci

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: Raimondo Guidacci

Planning a funeral chapel means designing a building with a strong symbolic value means dealing not only with the place where it will be placed, but especially with spiritual values. Planning a funeral chapel, is how to design a small monument, a small church. In the design of the chapel to St. George Canavese, all this adds another element represented by the fact that it was to renovate a chapel trying to preserve the existing profile.
