The project of renovation of this building , has the complex task of interpreting the character of a neighborhood that over the years has impoverished and messed up it’s architectural language. We have therefore opted for a language that would gather the suggestions of the past modern architecture . We then tried to make use of the elements identified in the analysis of the buildings of the “Villaggio dei Reduci” to build a vocabulary that would allow an appeal to the glorious past of the QT8 neighborhood. It was decided to recover the cited above elements : a clear volumetric and evident hierarchy between living spaces and service ones ; sloped roof only ; vertical openings for the living areas and small or horizontal windows for the service rooms ; shading devices with an architectural character; juxtaposition on the facade of a large - functional decorative item that would counterpoint the severity of the general volumetric and architectural composition of the building.
