Nuova sede centrale dei Vigili del Fuoco
The new building was designed to fit organically into the context and to follow the contours of the existing terrain. The volume is divided into smaller ones, which are connected to each other, which at the same time allow an undisturbed visual contact that passes from east to west and creates the connection between the mountains and the lake, without obstacles. The building is a collection of different volumes, arches and empty spaces, pitched roofs, in different directions, paraphrase the vernacular architecture and the folkloristic language of the typical buildings in a modern way. Although completely redesigned, the building declares itself as a contemporary schedule on the branches of lake.
