Crossed dialogues. Between historical building and energy efficiency
The project for the extension of the Cova Adaglio Palace follows a functional approach, where the design criteria derive from the didactic and organisational requirements of the school. It stands in continuity to the existing historical building and is characterised by contemporary architectural and technological features.
The volume hosting the classrooms is built in X-lam panels and is equipped with FV panels on the roofing that are needed to satisfy energy consumption needs. The gymnasium is constructed in a wooden framework, completed with a metallic ventilated façade that provides high bioclimatic performance. The flexibility is a key focus in the design proposal: the classrooms are separated through movable wall partitions that can be arranged depending on the user’s need.
