The remodelling of “Villa Burresi", for more than a century the hospital of Poggibonsi, includes the rearrangement of all floors, with the aim of obtaining through a new arrangement of premises a complex with multiple social, cultural and educational functions, aimed not only at young people, but all other potential users.
Outdoor spaces will also be requalified to create an indoor-outdoor continuity, particularly with regard to events, musical activities and a youth centre, aimed at furthering social integration and aggregation.
THE PROJECT: CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS
The building is bound by the Superintendence for Historical,Artistic and Ethno-anthropological Heritage and its conservation and architectural integrity have been safeguarded in both consolidation and conversion works. Remodelling works also aimed at static structural improvement in harmony with its character, while structural works have been designed so as to have no direct impact on the quality of inside spaces. The project includes the maintenance and restoration of all the building’s principal architectural features, as well as the reintegration of original architectural elements missing or deteriorated.
The structure’s new spaces have been arranged for :
- documented historical activities, Municipal Library, Municipal Central Archives, Documentation Centre for Twentieth-Century History and Culture of Poggibonsi
- artistic and historical activities, Municipal Picture Gallery
- Art Education, School of Music
- Experimental educational activities, Youth Centre
The aim is to maximize the use of this area by the population, with flexible spaces for different needs and requirements, as well as creating a synergy among the spaces themselves.
