Baradello Service Center

Baradello Service Center

The project aims to address and support summer-winter tourism by providing the Aprica-Corteno Golgi area with a service center for users, as well as a shelter for emergency vehicles for the Fire Department, Red Cross, and Alpine Rescue. Emergency vehicles have direct access from the main road, and a 7-meter overhang ensures unobstructed circulation. A large covered external staircase connects the street level to the ski slope level, where clinics and staff spaces are located. The external walls are clad in vertical wooden slats, while the large external hatches and the underside of the canopy are made of polycarbonate panels. These panels, when backlit, will allow natural light during the day and create a lantern effect at night, emphasizing its landmark and public building character.

An architecture that is simple and iconic, “site-specific,” interpreting the Valtellina’s “genius loci,” a volume integrated with the ground featuring a large overhang that embodies the local mountainous character, a technical and contemporary building that appears timeless

The building becomes a significant reference in both symbolic and functional terms for the location, addressing both the relationship between slopes and roads and the current state of “abandonment” that characterizes the site
