Sassa School Complex

Ten years after a destructive earthquake rocked Italy's central Abruzzo region, many students still attend class in temporary modules similar to containers. Named winners of an international competition, SET Architects’ design for the new “Sassa School Complex” proposes reconstructing a place for students and the community to learn, gather, and grow. Inspired by the modularity and essential nature of climbing frame play structures, the architects describe the design as a metaphor for “freedom and social aggregation as a fundamental value for dynamic and innovative teaching.” Located in the town of Sassa, near L’Aquila (the town most affected by the 2009 earthquake), the project is situated strategically...

Thorpe Lodge

This project for Holland Park School has given us an opportunity to explore in more detail how we work with historic buildings to make them fit for contemporary use. Grade II-listed Thorpe Lodge has a captivating history, and was originally a Palladian-style villa surrounded by countryside. Its distinguished residents include the Victorian portrait artist Henry Tanworth Wells and Montagu Norman, Governor of the Bank of England, both of whom remodelled the villa with the loss of much of the original character.   Our sensitive restoration has returned some of this character to the building, reworking it as an asset to the school. The jumbled sequence of internal spaces are now knitted back together, reconnecting the building to the str... More

Immaginazione e Lavoro School

In 2018, the professional training agency “Immaginazione e Lavoro” converted the school Istituto Sant’Anna in Moncalieri, on the outskirts of the city of Turin, into a professional training centre for graphic designers and electronic technicians. This abandoned school building needed urgent repair. To juggle budget constraints, the project decided to focus on preserving the parts which were still structurally sound, thus reducing construction work to a minimum and relying instead on décor, graphics and communication. With a series of cosmetic repairs, this project intends to restore the dignity and identity of the building, focusing on communicating and presenting ideas with graphics and colour. In this instance,... More

Nursery School Virolet

The project is born taking into account two main considerations:1 The place, with its topography and geometry, gives shape to the floor plan. The site becomes the landmark of the project.2 Being a nursery school forced us to keep user-friendly and familiar stairs even though the use of unevenness was needed in order to achieve a direct contact of the rooms with the playground.The place because of its area and its topography was determinant in the architectural aspect of the school. Although it is advisable to plan the different spaces on one floor, in this particular case we had to consider two floors. It division into two floors with different accesses was our proposal in order to solve the problem of the slope.The tridimensional organizat... More
