Converting the former home of the director of Bari Airport became the opportunity to equip this transport infrastructure with a nursery for the airport employees and neighbourhood inhabitants’ children. The project is centred on the juxtaposition of opposing scales: the intimate nature of a children’s centre and the monumental scale of an airport.
