On November 26, 2017, in the presence of the local authorities of Brescia, the foundation stone was laid for the new extension of the “Scuola Nikolajewka” complex, a health facility located in the municipality of Brescia. The complex will become a pole of excellence at European level and enlargement will allow the increase of services and potential for guest care.

AIACE has taken part in the realization of the work in particular for the part concerning the design: it has dealt with feasibility study, final and executive design, works management and safety coordination in design and execution phase.

The new spaces are approached east to the Tower of Hercules of the existing structure, presenting itself as a natural extension of the original building, generating an alignment of the fronts on the south side and on the contrary creating a more articulated form on the north front. The project is also embellished with glazed shielded connections with brise-soleil elements between the Torre D’Ercole and the new expansion, such as to ensure greater visual opening.

The intervention is also innovative in terms of technology, aligning with the requirements of European legislation for 2020 and interpreting the performance of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings.
