Brownfield Former Quasimodo School

Short Overview

Between the districts of Voltri and Pra’, in the west area of the city, the property is located just hundreds of metres as the crow flies from the motorway exit of Genova Pra’. Even if it is located in a densely populated residential are, the green areas and the orography of the territory give a strong natural connotation to the area. The elevated position allows you to dominate a large part of the coastline with the eyes.

This building was built in the second half of the 20th century and was born to serve as a school, it has a very characteristic architecture: on a large squared plant composed of three levels, there are two “towers” in the corners which host the classrooms and are built on three other levels. The structure is in a discrete condition and is composed of frames of reinforced concrete, which allow the use of large lights and large projecting volumes. The interiors are in a bad condition, the finishings and the systems are heavily compromised.

The building has a double entrance, one for cars from via Podestà to the east and the other for pedestrians to the west.
