Second place

The particular landscape and the environment, the distinctive features and the characteristic tradition of the Alpine territory, where the project is located, have imposed numerous reflections.

Some themes have been identified through which to recount the project: the mountain village, the paths, the meeting places and the domestic spaces.

In a configuration of volumes that strongly remind us of old mountain villages, in fact, the design interprets the space of the entrance to the Senior City as an authentic courtyard, overlooked by the residential units.

  • International Competition

The courtyard is also the departure and arrival point of the internal and external paths, the barycentric place of the entire composition. Stairs and balconies that run along the walls of the dwellings, organised in three buildings with slightly offset floors, characterise the empty space of the courtyard itself.

The entire composition rests on the ground following its natural slope.
