Expansion of a music school
Expansion of a Music School. The Extension preserves the Historical Character

In Brunico, South Tyrol, the BarozziVeiga Studio is the protagonist of the extension of the music school located in the historic Casa Ragen villa which, while preserving the historical character of the city centre, highlights the majesty of the villa

The project proposes the construction of a new boundary, enabling the characteristic urban fabric of Brunico consisting of noble villas and sealed gardens to have continuity, while at the same time highlighting the urban presence of Casa Ragen, thanks to the very sober character of the extension that integrates perfectly with what already exists

The extension consists of two parts, one is a basement and the other that shapes the garden. The latter is the central space of the project, in relation to the existing building and the extension. It is a large and quiet space, ideal for concerts, shows or events

Outside, the new school is characterized by a continuous sober wall in which the new entrance door is inserted. As far as Casa Ragen is concerned, its interior patio has been redesigned: thanks to the new roof, the space is characterized and transformed by a system of adjustable glass and slats that act as a light diffuser
