Induno Olona Cemetery

The expansion of the cemetery in Induno Olona, Varese, can be described as an "in between" project, situated between the courtyard of the old enclosure, designed by Maciachini, and the steep hill behind it.
In relation to the natural and artificial reference conditions, the intervention acts as a threshold, becoming a subject that regulates both visual and morphological relationships. This settlement operation is accomplished through the construction of a long parallelepiped clad in Carrara white marble. The volume is cut on the side facing the cemetery by a sequence of slots arranged with a harmonious but irregular rhythm, which, together with those on the roof with a regular pattern, give the internal space an intense modulation generated by natural light, changing throughout the day.

A project “in between” the courtyard of the old enclosure and the steep hill behind it, with a significant slope

The proposal creates a device capable of transforming the place by adopting its qualitative characteristics and reasons
