该项目区位于意大利维罗纳维拉弗兰卡的郊区，在城市核心地带和农田之间。其中一条名为“strada della Rizza”的道路被这个村落围绕，是维罗纳一个相当繁忙的交通枢纽。新建筑的设计是为了更新和扩建以前一个平行于“strada della Rizza”的部分，成为可以被使用的空间，同时保护学校免受附近的道路的影响。基于这个原因，设计师决定建造一个3.5米高的没有任何窗口的混凝土楼层。
The project area is located in the outskirts of Villafranca and Verona, between the urban core and the agricultural land. The more distinctive presence is the “strada della Rizza” around which is structured the small village Rizza, that’s a quite busy output axis of Verona. The new building is designed as a reconstruction and expansion of a previously existing one lying parallel to the “strada della Rizza” and looks like an inhabited wall that protects the school from the nearby road. For this reason, it present a 3,5m high basement in concrete without any window that look like an infrastructure’s construction.

The upper floor facade is fully coated with polycarbonate with a strong insulation coefficient, with gray tones to the outside and white to the inside. In this way light coming inside the classroom is not modified in its colour by the exterior colour of the facade. The classrooms thus have an entire wall producing natural diffused light. The facades intervention involves new windows frames, an insulated coat in opaque parts and a double skin made with polycarbonate vertical strips that relate the old building with the new one giving it a contemporary image. The different yellow tones of the polycarbonate reflect the colours of the garden and define a changing aesthetic, sensible to the different hours of the day and the different seasons.

入口大厅有两层楼的高度，位于一条二级路上，分割了公共与私人空间，邀请行人进入并稍作停留。与入口和花园一侧的暖色调材料相反，在小路“strada della Rizza”的这一侧呈现了另一种色彩倾向。在入口大厅前的避难所将两层高的入口与周围独立房屋的规模联系起来，使得城市外貌具有更强的连续性。
The entrance hall opens with its double high in a secondary street and works like a filter between public and private space inviting you to enter and stay. In opposition with the cold colours and materials existing in the “strada della Rizza” side of the building, this entrance side and the garden one present some coloured parts. The shelter existing in front of the entrance hall, outside the school fence, is an important element of urban mediation because it relates the double high element of the entrance with the scale of the detached houses existing in around.

外部聚碳酸酯墙面和内部玻璃幕墙之间的间隙底部设计了通风用的网格，并在顶部架设电动窗户以改善建筑物的温度调节性能。在 “strada della Rizza”这条路对面，是一所当地的教堂，教堂前面的正方形空间自然结束在建筑的立面之下。这两个公共建筑之间的布局旨在创造一个复杂的城市空间，并以这种方式重新提升整个地区的品质。在学校一侧创建一个小的公共空间，旨在接收来自教堂前停车场的人流。
The gap between outside polycarbonate and inside glass facades is ventilated in the bottom by a grid and in the top by motorized windows to improve the thermal behaviour of the building. This building facade is the natural ending of the square existing in front of the church, on the opposite side of the “ strada della Rizza”. The relation between this two public buildings aim to create a complex urban space and to requalify in this way the whole area. The creation of a small public space in the side of the school intended to receive the pedestrian flow coming front the car parking in front of the church, has the same aim.

The intervention in the existing building is a seismic energy efficiency upgrading, building renovation as well as a refunctionalisation of the basement, initially organized as an open space and finally configured as a small auditorium and two special classrooms (art and informatics). The inside of the building is dominated by colours by the use of a specific material called “valchromat” (a mix of wood fibers with resin, paste coloured and available in the colours of the natural oxide) to develop a real chromatic identity path for the small users of the building. Thanks to its adaptability and its high technical performance, this material is used indistinctly as a wall cladding, and to create furniture and doors in particular in the classrooms and library that presents a fitted wall.
