“Care and precision, when combined, facilitate the transformation of the farmhouse into a space for social and housing services dedicated to accommodating various vulnerabilities. The newly added structures are designed with careful consideration of both external and internal spatial arrangements, and with details that are simultaneously essential and capable of providing technical efficiency and usability. They also prioritize the protection, autonomy, and independence of the families accommodated here.” (Jury’s motivation)
The Ceremony for the awarding of the National Prize IN/ARCHITETTURA 2023 took place on November 7th in the halls of Ca’ Giustinian, headquarters of the Venice Biennale.
