A NEW MUNICIPAL GYM IN THE COMO AREA
In Cadorago, in the province of Como, Magnetti Building has built the new school gym commissioned by Gruppo Guffanti A. S.p.A., based on a project designed by architect Marco Castelletti. The volume of the construction amounts to approximately 1,400 m2 with a two-storey load-bearing structure with perimeter panels created by using prefabrication technology; it perfectly blends into the context of a pre-existing school complex built in 1938, bound by the Superintendency for Environmental and Architectural Heritage, that required the development and functional reorganisation of spaces and surrounding areas. The construction of the new gym created also the opportunity to redesign the outdoor areas, thus giving rise to a small car park as well as a glazed link between the old building and the new construction, providing the public with a complete school complex that is both pleasant to look at and to attend.
