The Ancillotto site is perceived as a mixed-use project to meet the present housing requirements of the region. In the process of design a great emphasis was laid to derive optimal functional combinations that can generate not only an economically feasible proposal, but also to fi nd means and ways to reach higher sustainable models.

Project masterplan.

Our approach was mainly to fi nd a balance between the pre-existing landscape heritage value of the site and the evolving functional requirements for housing, working and recreation. This allowed us to challenge the existing typological approach in Italy, with sustainability as a major concern. The proposal is also liberating all the ground for public utility and generates higher interaction and participation of the public with the landscape.

Masterplan layering.

The project integrates the historical Villa park and the urban park with the future needs for habitation, working and leisure. The pedestrian circulation system defi nes the ambiance quality and mixed use functional possibilities. In Ancillotto, this is emphasized by creating a green axis towards the Villa, passing through the housing apartments, where the apartments are raised above the ground to maintain a visual continuity of the green structure. Green roof terraces and 360 degree view with privacy for the housing units, generates higher interaction for the user with the surrounding landscape.
