Palazzina is a preservation project of an early XXth century building, part of the wider regeneration project of Bagni Misteriosi and Teatro Franco Parenti in Milan. The structure used to accommodate the changing rooms of the public swimming pool is transformed into a versatile space for cultural production, which widens the offer of the nearby theatre.
Given the diverse spatial qualities resulting from the many functions previously housed, the strategy is to amplify the features and peculiarities of each room by underlying their differences in geometry, light, materials, and colors. In the project of Palazzina, different restoration, conservation, and reuse strategies are adopted according to the characteristics of each space.
The result is a heterogeneous project, made up of an articulated sequence of different environments, accommodating many cultural activities.
