Under such circumstances the project looked really challenging and binding – just a few weeks for development, very tight construction timing and low budget, most of the expenses borne are the costs of the materials.
Moreover, – the temporary destination of the buildings – restoration is to be easily switched to other functions later on, once the town is rebuilt and needs other facilities.
The first to be realized is a school refectory, then the whole food court will be built around the open courtyard. But even if the project is about feeding it is not only about food – it’s a place for human interaction and a gesture of support to the neighborhoods that will give a job to more than 130 people.
School refectory area about 490 square meters, consisting of a dining room for 150 seats in the open bar area, and a number of service areas for galleys, preparation and storage, bathrooms, locker-rooms, local washing and waste, technical rooms.
The structure will be realized using wooden prefabricated elements for the outer casing and the supporting elements; modular elements in the insulated metal sheet for the roof; aluminum and double glazing perimeter doors and windows; interior partitions in dry materials; indoor and outdoor flooring in concrete and gres tiles for local service and kitchen.
