    Information provided by the medieval urban structure and resulting public spaces to architectural development has been assimilated: the scale of objects within space, public to semi-public / private to private transitions, proportions between volumes and within volumes, transparency, opaqueness, and the existing network of routes and nodes. The functional scheme is split into four volumes arranged to form two squares of differing levels of privacy at the feet of the hill. A treat to start a walk up to the medieval city. The angled building volumes are clad with metal panels, today's opaque choice, in contrast with even windows. Competition entry: third prize out of three entries.
