A clear and decisive architectural project, which interprets with a rationality of composition and a lightness of form the complexity of the subject handled. The problematical proximity to the surrounding historical context has been courageously resolved with this new addition that avoids resorting to mimicry. The balance struck in the definition of the space between the shell and the flooring has been brilliantly achieved with a well implemented and discreet use of ceramics. The skilful use of materials, colours and light plays an essential role at the composition level in the definition of environmental quality, through a study into harmony and simplicity.
