Biennale-Sessions_2018/6-8JUL: BOX[insidethe]BOX

July 6th, 2018
  • The aim of our project is the upgrading of the Colonia Montana of Renesso, giving it new life and new functions. The fascist colony has a rigid structure made by an overlapping of closed horizontal levels that gives no interaction between spaces. Maintaining the structural elements of the building and its external envelope like a box, we create an empty volume where spaces are all in communication. In this space we Design other small boxes floating in the void completely changing the original image of the building. The first impression you have watching the building from the outside is the same that you could have seeing a fascist architecture cause we made no changes in the elevations, but when you come inside an other world opens to your eyes. This rooms are physically linked one to each other with pathways and from a box you can see what happens in the entire building through a visual connection made by cuts. Going one more time against the design of the building that is made in concrete, our intervention is composed by wood elements that makes clear the differences with the original elements.
    The wood finish of the interiors and the size of the space related to the human dimension gives to the room a cosy and intimate Aspect that perfectly welcome child, the ones for who the building is designed.
    The furniture is made by a white metal modular grid closed by wooden panels for support elements and vertical closers. The grid is composed by the sum of cubic elements that remind the shapes of the boxes. In particular the maquette represents the dance room, one of the artistic boxes, in fact two of the vertical wall are covered by mirrors and the other two by wood. The entrance is defined by the pressure of the pathway in the direction of the boxes, creating a deformed shape of the wall where the furniture are placed. In conclusion the external finish of the entrance is colored with different nuances for distinguishing the functions inside the boxes.
