OSPEDALETTO - VENEZIA
+ Martina Libová
Project in the centre of Venice was to create new residential and commercial area and to reconstruct an old building of former hospital. This old building should provide space apart from residential and commercial area also for music school, students’ residences and offices for Antiquities Authority.
One of the most important points was to innervate closed space of the area. We defined main veins and built-up area. Northern block is designed to separate not very pretty area of existing hospital. Designed space like this creates in the centre a triangular central public square, which rises and turns to the street leaving the area.
New volumes and public space are trying to honour Venetian character. We used proven urban typology. Most apartments are duplexes and almost every newly designed flat is trying to work with private outdoor space, both in the form of terraces and private gardens. Stairs usually serves to one or two apartments. It creates more close and family character.
