– Project: Design Proposal
PHA together with Andrea Cattacin worked on the competition for a school in Malles.
The building has been designed to follow the curve of the landscape, following the mountain but inclined to the valley. Maintaining existing routes and point of entry, the routes slice the volume generating the connection and identifying the three buildings with different functions.
The ground floor is the connecting space, allowing the sunlight to come inside throughout the building thanks to courtyards, that also create external semi public spaces. At first floor are located, separated from the semi public areas, the bedrooms for students and teachers.
