The place and the building: the international competition for the design and the European funds

The seventeenth-century convent situated behind the city walls, once hospital, then school, library and museum, had been closed since 2000. To reconfigure the place and the building an international competition for the planning and design was set up, which was won by the Paduan architects of Studiomas, together with Heinz Tesar, a maestro of Mitteleuropean contemporary architecture.

After almost three years of work and an investment of five million euro (65% of which from European funds), the museum was re-opened to the public at the end of 2015 and houses nineteenth and twentieth-century collections, including important works by Arturo Martini, Luigi Sereni, Giovanni Apollonio.

The architectural project: restoration of the first cloister and of the new façade overlooking the square

The project starts from the layout of the convent, to design new urban structures. The route passing through the exhibitory spaces is fluid and continuous, beginning in a small square and proceeding through the show-rooms and the cloister in constant movement from one to the other through the large glass openings - and in a broad sense from the town to the museum – through the new façade.

This new element is generated from the liberal and asymmetrical intersection between the gallery – a novel aspect of the project that distributes the functions and houses the hall and ticket office – and the existing buildings.

The rarefied abstraction in the design of the front view is composed of few elements: the brilliant white surfaces of the staggered levels – in white ‘marmorino’, plaster made of lime and marble powder, slabs of artificial stone and the openings.

Stylish details: OS2 profiles of Secco Sistemi in corten steel

Tracing the outlines of the doors and windows is decisive in the design of these façades: the fixtures are assembled in such a way as to have a single flush line of metal between the exterior and the interior. In the external frontal view, the visible profiles are of just 6 cm.

Rectilinear or arched apertures, with pivoting or casement windows or fixed glazing: the OS2 Secco Sistemi profiles interpret the design of the openings, translating the fine lines into impeccable, slender, essential yet at the same time efficient, safe and high-performing fixtures.

The brightness of the corten steel blends harmoniously with the white surfaces on white background of the exteriors and integrates perfectly with the symphony of soft pastel hues chosen for the interior decoration.
