condominio il torchio

1956

Cantù (CO)

 

This building is conceived as an urban hinge between Via Puecher and Via Battisti, within an irregular parcel, and it is constituted by an H plan, with two low buildings devoted to the offices, and an other transversal one, six floors high, for the dwellings. Also in this case we find a few themes later developed in the Giardino Residential Building, such as the mix of functions, the presence of more than one volumes for defining them, the broken perimeter of the plan.
