About
The request of the Client was the renovation and extension of existing Folklore Museum, located in the former home of the director of the school which currently houses the Academy.
Our reflections have quickly led to finding that challenges and expectations of the Client could not find the answer in a simple extension. Our proposals for its demands have been developed as follows:

1. create a new museum on the edge of the garden in order to fully enjoy it and integrate it in the museum tour
2. rotate the new museum to the old museum, the street and the city by creating a new public space, a real cultural center
3. the new museum is the hinge between each different space composing the site
4. develop a fluid and uninterrupted path between the street, the square, the park, the parking and the museum. The constructed ground area (1. Reception, 2. Documentation center and offices 3. Multipurpose room) is reduced and processed to preserve transparency of spatial and visual continuity and to develop a continuous exhibition space upstairs
5. adopt a central position to ensure the new museum has visibility from different axes
6. generate functional circulations for the ground floor: one way car / parking, delivery and pedestrians
7. create a contemporary architecture playing with natural materials
