Kappl is a small village in the mountains of Tyrol in Austria. The main task of this project was to create an attractive village square between the existing church and a nearly 40 º inclined slope. The new buildings were thus situated as to form a U-shaped outside space with the church adding the southern closure.

Every consideration on viaduct redevelopment must start with particular attention to the largest sense of its context1 as well as its components, both visible and invisible. It is of course essential to consider the site’ potential in order to integrate the project within its landscape; furthermore, to gain a deep understanding of every single component representing the milieu2, appears as a fundamental task for the development of such a project. We also have to be aware of the current international climate that goes far beyond the Calabre region, as it can influence, and maybe even develop the local scale of the Project.
