New paving and urban furnishing of Piazza S. Agostino

Colle Val d’Elsa, 1997

Alberto Breschi, Luca Furiozzi, Daniele Ravagni


The project for the renovation of the square is based on the creation of a perfectly flat rectangle that averages the slight difference in longitudinal height: a layout in layers of different stone materials linked to the local tradition decorates it as a pattern rhythmically formed by narrower and lighter strips which include luminous diffusers set as a pointed grid. Sections of lawn and trees complete the decoration and mark the role of the square as access to the adjacent natural park system.
