Scuola primaria Marco Polo Reggio Emilia (I), 2007-2008

Requalification works for a pre-existing school building that stands out for the creative use of the ceramic lining. The facades colour composition recalls the "construction cubes" toy theme, substantially adapting from time to time the application solution to specific restructuring needs. The building of the ventilated wall, carefully carried out in full detail, is directed by an accurate design layout geared on valorising the doors and windows integration in the wall. Analogously, the curved wall has been brilliantly lined using glue-fastened special size tiles.
