Brownfield House of the Soldier

Short Overview

The “Nicola Bonservizi” building, more commonly known as the “House of the Soldier” is located in Genoa Sturla, in a narrow plot of land leaning against the filling of Piazza Sturla and behind Via Chighizola. Its construction dates back to between 1936 and 1938, designed by the Ligurian architect Luigi Carlo Daneri.

The building develops on four floors above ground and a basement, with two entrances, one on Piazza Sturla and the other on Via Bartolomeo Chighizola. At the level of the square, the building seems low, only a single floor characterised by ribbon windows, which cut the entire width of the prospectus, which is accessed by a large covered space where there is the body of the staircase with an elliptical plan enclosed in a structure of glass and concrete; a flat roof terrace on which there is a small tower concludes the building.

Under the street level the building proceeds downwards with a new volume on three floors, whose vertical extension can be seen from Via Chighizola. This elevation is also characterised by ribbon windows; the plan of the building is rectangular and its structural mesh in reinforced concrete is very simple. The horizontal internal distribution is rather linear and is repeated in an almost identical manner on every floor.

The vertical link between all floors is through the elliptical staircase; whilst a second one, whose access is only through Via Chighizola, connects between them only the third and second level under the floor. The only non-original element is the external gate, which was built at a later date, presumably for safety reasons.
