Fossalunga is a small village close to Venice that developed around the main street in a linear way. The buildings that define the main square are an ancient villa and a Church. The nursery school is situated in the northern part of the village between the buildings and the landscape. The school itself draws the new horizon.

The school is designed around a central hall that looks south, towards the village, and North, toward the landscape. The passages, crossing the hall, connect to classrooms on one side, and to the dining-room on the other side. These passages are different in terms of dimension, proportion, color, function.

Exploded Axon

The different widths of the structure correspond to different height in sections (3,60 and 2,40 meters). In this way, different functional spaces are related to different proportion and the rhythm of the structure comes out through the natural light that cross the depth of the building.

  • ariana roberts

    sometimes pics don’t do a building justice, like the ones for the entry.

  • Louis BESSARD

    Very nice work on inside colours and on the lightening

    the choice of materials on the outside is just wrong… just a sort of patchwork without a clear idea of what is what…

  • Exter

    I love the exterior.
