The urban refurfishment of Largo San Giorgio site in Pordenone, Italy follows the main topic of returning the citizens of Pondenone again a part of the town which was inaccessible due to the different levels of the streets and to the fact that it had been private for many years. A path sews together the lake, the park and the square of San Giorgio church designing a public open space where the new housing and the church servces face. As many of C+S works the architectural design focuses on the strong relationship between architecture and landscape. The buildings mould themselves with the lake boundaries and their elevations are designed by big wood-made windows which both reflect the landscape and bring it inside the houses’ sitting-rooms. The buildings design two sides of San Gorgio square which is open to the town during the day and closed for security reasons in the night thanks to a metal gate which folds on when not used. The skirting board of the buildings is made of Prun stone, the same material which the square is made of.
