residential building in Viale Italia

1967
Tirano (SO)

 

The building belongs to a series of intervention realized in Valtellina (two in Tirano, one in Bormio and one in Oga) with the Ferrari Company, based in Tirano. Placed in an area between Viale Italia and the yard of the local railway station, it is constituted by two parallel L-shaped blocks characterized by a jagged configuration dued to the juxtaposition of multiple volumes, that generates protrusions and recesses. The main blocks, differentiated in color (red and brown) are connected by a low commercial volume in front of the road; in the middle of it there is the passage that leads the visitors to the inner courtyard. #gm100
