Brownfield Via Borsieri Office

Short Overview

A zone to the west of the city, in the district of Certosa di Rivarolo, close to the manufacturing and industrial area of “Borzoli” (Ikea, Leroy Merlin, Unieuro and Ansaldo). This is a predominantly working-class district; many ground floors for business purposes are vacant.

This modern building is located next to the raised railway and faces a narrow street (via Borsieri). The part included in the portfolio is the first floor of a 2-floor building, which hosts the “Acquerello” nursery school on the ground floor (which hosts around 80 children). They share the same entrance from the road. The building once hosted some offices of the Municipality (social service) and has been vacant for 8 – 10 years. The building belongs to a complex of public buildings, which host the Caffaro middle school, but the common entrances are closed by gates. In the same complex you will also find the Municipality market, on the east side of the building, whilst on the north side there are residential buildings with solar pavements and balconies which are very close to the building.

The building, built with reinforced concrete and large glass windows, it was preserved in a discrete condition. There are some infiltrations in the east rooms.
