Politecna launches the redevelopment project of the former Randaccio Barracks in Brescia (IT)

2 January 2024

Following the awarding of the tender called by the Italian Agenzia del Demanio, Politecna Europa and SAB are glad to launch the redevelopment project of the former Randaccio Barracks in Brescia, set to house the new local headquarters of the Italian Agenzia delle Entrate!

The restoration and re-functionalization of the two historic volumes will host the new offices, while a new building will house the front office and archive functions.

Our proposal was awarded for its attention to the relationship between ancient and contemporary, which turns into a recognizable and harmonious architectural language, combining the values of preservation and innovation.

The new volume, characterized by innovative, recyclable and modular elements, stands out as an organic injection capable of enhancing the original fronts of the architectural organism. The new photovoltaic glass skin, which can be easily disassembled, does not affect the historic structure, and the newly crafted gables serve as a frame for the 19th-century-style facades.
