The surgery is inconspicuous, sober and lasting.

The project does not impose itself on places, but is a part of it, in an intrinsic and coherent way. For the flooring we investigated the local and consolidated solutions, which make use of river pebbles and splitted paving.

It was preferred to use a stone with marked oxidation and coloring. Furthermore, material from the demolition of the cantonal road was fortunately found. It was decided to reuse it for detailed solutions, such as the rainwater drainage channel or for grafting the flooring onto the paths that climb up from the lakefront towards the core.

The lake railing has a marked and dry presence, which does not impose itself however, but coexists in a polite way with the view of the beautiful lake landscape of Lake Maggiore.
