Location: Bolzano, Italy
Project status: two-stage competition – mentioned
The new district for health and social services consists of three volumes which separate the different functions hosted in the structure. The volume overlooking Piazza Angela Nikoletti houses the health service, while the one along Via Claudia Augusta hosts the social service. This partition allows different access points which assure independence to each service. On the ground floor, along the portico, there is a glazed volume which houses the council pharmacy.
The connection between the volumes is established by an L-shaped structure defining the Southern front which contains the general services, the vertical connections, and the waiting rooms of both facilities. On each floor, in the area of intersection between the two functions, there are the rooms reserved to personnel only.
