The two portions of the concerned building are no longer used, the ground floor area for many years and the third floor area since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic; while the rooms on the third floor are subject to periodic maintenance, those on the ground floor are now in a state of neglect.

The project therefore, in addition to the architectural interventions, envisaged the renovation of the technical systems such as to make the portions of the building functioning according to the regulations in force.

Nonetheless, the project evaluated the best solution to connect this expansion to the functioning social-health district at a distribution level in order to create a single structure, called the Community House of Camaiore, regulating its flows.

Thanks to the intervention described here, the Community House of Camaiore will have a consistency of about 1230 square meters distributed on several levels, connected to each other.

The objectives pursued through the project are the following:

- enhancement and redevelopment of spaces, internal routes and routes towards other activities;

- maximum attention in the choice of materials and systems, suitable for the purpose of the building, respect for the environment and energy efficiency, integrating them where possible with the pre-existing structures;

- rationality, functionality of environments and paths;

- minimum interference during the work with the activities carried out inside the building.

The design aimed to ensure the safety of users and staff, in particular for the following aspects:

- fire and emergency management;

- safety in the use of spaces (friction characteristics of walkable surfaces, respect to glazing characteristics, etc.);

- hygienic-sanitary safety (washability and surface sanitization characteristics, air exchange, aero-illuminating surfaces, etc.).

Architectural features of the project

The architectural project is articulated in two different ways:

Ground floor

Currently in disuse, the ground floor presents widespread problems of humidity, therefore the projects includes the renovation of the floor, the underlying screed for systems, and the restoration of the walls. Furthermore, in some areas located on the north side, in which the aero-illuminating ratio was not verified, two windows were enlarged, considering the possible alignments with the openings present on the upper floors. The replacement of two windows on the south side is instead due to energy efficiency reasons. In fact, the two existing windows, made up of single glazing and obsolete frames, will be replaced with new frames, also in wood but with thermal break and double glazing.

An improvement from the distribution point of view is necessary: from the north side of the filter between the entrance to the building and the corridor, an opening has been designed which allows access to a new waiting room, while two bathrooms designed for disabled people are inserted along the corridor.

In order to guarantee the usability of the services currently present in the structure, as regards the renovation of floors and walls, no interventions were planned inside the entrance area, which is currently in good condition and represents the only access for people with disabilities to the RSA which is located on the upper floor.
