Within the project for the construction of the New Santa Chiara University Hospital in Cisanello, the recovery of building n°30 and the conversion of the property into a high-level student residence stand out as leading interventions. The concept for the proposal stems from acknowledgement of the centrality of the volume with respect to the main university hubs of the city, as well as the lack of modern university accommodation. The exclusive context is marked by the presence of greenery, giving back a place that is protected from noise and pollution. Pedestrian and cycle accessibility connects the building quickly and safely to Piazza dei Miracoli and to the commercial area.
