Masterplan for the rehabilitation of a former industrial site
Gornate Olona, Varese

Back to works

The recuperation of an industrial area from the 1930’s in La Torba makes way for an intersection of the surrounding natural landscape, historical remnants of an industrial site, and neighboring attractions, the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Monastero di Torba, the ancient ruins of Castelseprio and Santa Maria foris portas. A multifunctional program attends to culture, sports, and leisure to bring a variety of functions to the site and also establishing a network for such programs in the surrounding area; incorporating the industrial culture of the area, the existing bike path, sports, outdoor and wildlife activities and education, hospitality, and welcome/information services.
