Within the operation of requalification of the urban area along the Olona river – which is the main reference point of the composition – an articulated master plan has got a multiple intended use: it will serve as a multipurpose sports complex/swimming pool, a market with a parking lot attached, and a club-house with facilities outside. The different areas are connected to each other by a hanging cycle path and footpath that is immersed into the vegetation.
The wellness and fitness centre is the core of the project. The building has got a wave-shaped roof that recalls both the lot’s morphology and the river’s loops. Another key feature is the innovation technology that ensures high energy performance and comfort for users.
