Home Carpet
Cenate Sotto (Bg) - first prize
A great new fluid collective space, a traversable surface, a land of encounter and exchange. A kind of vegetal ring "square", gives the residents a new place where to recognize, get in touch, play or simply relax for a few minutes. A paved carpet winds through meadows and historic trees, welcoming suspended volumes for long sessions in the green. From sunset the benches are illuminated at the base, floating on clouds of light striking the pavement and giving it a vibrant look. Shaft elements and lighting hidden in the bushes complete the construction of a perceptual landscape we could say domestic, fluffy, familiar. The new spaces connect the school gardens at the historic public park on a real seamless green ridge.
