The project consists in the partial demolition and new erection of an existing but never completed house from the mid-nineties on the company’s plot. The conversion includes the overhaul of the offices in the ground floor and the construction of an apartment in the first and second floor with a roof-deck. The removal of the gabled roof, the demolition of all partition walls and the modification of the existing apertures made way to redefine a new volume, which would match with the client’s agenda.

Houses for children
With the design of an educational ensemble for Terenten in South Tyrol, the Viennese architectural collective feld72 set out important measures for a new concept of a thriving village structure.
The idea of the educational ensemble originated from a study in 2005, which involved the local community to develop a holistic concept for the village. Based on the original building of the 1970s, where the school and the kindergarten were housed together, a concept developed over the years which allows both facilities more space and interaction whilst at the same time integrating the existing village library.The educational ensemble opens itself to the village and vice versa – it becomes part of everyday life. A prerequisite for the implementation of this progressive and modern concept was the exemplary educational autonomy of South Tyrol and the very committed teachers involved in the project.The premise was to create an engaging and activating learning environment that encourages discovery, experimentation and research.

The project investigates the issues related to the ornament, such attitude can overcome the natural characteristics of the material exceeding the traditional areas. The concrete tables are adorned with imperfect decoration, made with white paint and the lighting in gauze plaster exhibit seams as elements that reinforce the character. The coating of the bench and stools with visible nails, refer to a dimension of the textile material, which seems sewn on the back support.

The project area is located at the edge of Zone of Luxury Environment within the perimeters of the areas ‘ZPS’ and ‘SIC’ at Bettolino, among the municipality of Novellara, Reggiolo and Fabbrico. The new house will be built in one of the most picturesque and typical zones of the reggiana plain, with its rare historical landscape and naturalistic value, fruit of the spontaneous fusion between nature and human work centuries old. This landscape, consolidated over centuries by a continuous rural work remained unchanged in forms and methods, has acquired a distinctive and unique look inside the reggiano. The compact in shape and volume house, even if in its limited forms, resumed the characteristcs of the typical rural buildings in these areas, with the roof in two pitches.
