High school campus Bagheria
The new school complex is imagined as a green infrastructure, a multi-level garden articulated in the site area. The planimetric layout, together with the multi-functionality of the rooms and the flexibility of the furnishings, makes it possible to increase the time of use thanks to the possible reconfiguration aimed at carrying out different activities. The connecting spaces outside the classroom are of great importance, to foster aggregation among the children, socialisation between the different classes and the creation of community.
The building’s external architectural image is entrusted to the green metal cladding, mounted with a pattern useful for giving rhythm and fragmenting the substantial volumes, micro-perforated at the loggias to ensure visual connections with the outdoor spaces. The interiors, on the other hand, are characterised by the warm tones of natural wood and the colours of the flooring and furniture.
