THE CENTRAL SQUARE OF ALBENGA, ITALY
Client: Albenga City Council
Subject: Landscape and Detail Architecture design
The project re-designs completely the central square of Albenga. The new image offered is dynamic, due to the brick made paving with marble strips inserted, which directly link the square with the surrounding areas.
At the same time the space has a strong sense of unity and identity, for the use of local materials in a contemporary way.
Existing palm trees are maintained, while facilities like a florist, a bar, a newspaper kiosk and wood made benches become an additional layer of features which are added with elegance to the composition.
