Requalification of park “Urtà”
Castelmarte - first prize
In the small historical center of Castelmarte, in the North of Italy, the municipality sought a design for a requalification of a small public space located on the border of its urban area. The typography of the land was extremely steep and covered in brush and forestry making it difficult to work with. That means a park without sun. Here, what is particularly beautiful is the view of the hilly landscape of the Brianza area. The proposal is not a real architectural project but a landscape surgery. In fact it creates different flat spots - green terraces - created by reworking the soil. Next and connected to this, some of the trees has been taken away to clear the view from the main terrace. Next to the creation of this green viewpoints a small caffe’ welcomes the visitors.
