The project aims are to recover and integrate an old site already used as an orphanage built on a portion of a hilly area next to the old centre of San Miniato. The "CASA VERDE" project, so called because of his historically/social value (CASA/home / orphanage – VERDE/Green / built in a forest of holm oaks), is a search to found links:
1_with the woods, through the study of the color leves shades in different seasons;
2_with the "guests Girls" by editing their graphic works on the glass facade;
3_with the city by reusing "vicoli carbonai" (useful and necessary for the maintenance of the hillside);
4_ with the research of a dialog with the natural light (main staircase);
5_with the centuries-old cypress trees next to the structure.
6_with art through the artist Mercury-S17S71 painting the faces of the "guests" has created a collection of contemporary artworks.
