Student Dormitories in the PL13-F25 U.M.I. 8 Area

Town of Sesto Fiorentino (Province of Florence)

2005 - 2012

The design approach to this project was characterized by bringing together clear, pure shapes set apart from one another by the choice of facing materials. A rhomboid-shaped structure, finished in exposed masonry, expresses strength and solidity and serves as the core onto which two suspended planes are grafted; these structures are faced, respectively, in metal and white plaster.

The student dormitories are six-floor structures, of which the first houses a common area (library and reading rooms).
