A shared farmstead with multiple vocations
The structure of the Cascina offers the opportunity to transform a space currently unused. Inside the existing buildings, custom-designed residential units will find their place, with the chance of having wide private outdoors spaces at floor level or above ground.
The large surface area available allows to insert spaces shared by the community such as a common kitchen, a hall for parties, a bread oven, the relax area or a small guest house.
As much as the interiors, the exteriors too can assume different functions according to everyone’s needs: from the urban vegetable gardens to the common green space, or to self-build areas.
Great attention will be given to the re-use of materials and to the preservation of the peculiarities of the edifice, that contribute to define the character of the Cascina.
Energy efficiency systems and innovative materials will contribute to reduce the management costs and to increase the comfort of the residences.
