The outcome of a collaborative effort made with local institutions, administrations and, most importantly, the local community, the project moves through different scales to include infrastructural and landscape interventions as well as targeted measures at the building scale for the restoration of historical fabrics. The program includes a play area for children, eco-kitchens for the women’s association as well as spaces for cultural activities and local institutions.
To strengthen the connection with the location’s rural history and promote an environmentally friendly approach, the project emphasizes local materials (limestone, crushed pottery, and sand) for reconstruction. In addition, the project adopts green practices including rainwater collection, greywater irrigation, reviving a water spring, and the integration of vegetation as a key design component. Green areas are conceived as social activators to promote interaction between community members and shared agricultural practices, offering new quality spaces away from pollution and urban densification.
