After winning an ideas competition, Cino Zucchi Architetti designed the redevelopment of the old silk factory of Chiampo “La Filanda” and adjacent open spaces. The client’s goal was to respect the original layout of the Filanda as much as possible. The property wanted to give life to a place capable of appreciating the past, but at the same time being innovative. A place that could also give back to the citizenship a new social aggregation area.
Italy, Chiampo (Vicenza)
Competition, 1st Prize
Cino Zucchi Architetti successfully responded to these requests by conceiving a revitalization project that met the technical-functional requirements while preparing an open and integrated environment for the city, characterized by a strong presence of greenery and a careful research on materials.
The combination of these elements, with various functional programs, defines a lively and animated complex where different commercial activities are set around the central “piazza”. A new public space designed to host the community and outdoor events. The regeneration of “La Filanda” in Chiampo is thus a project that respects the context and the environment, valuing the historical and territorial heritage of the area.
