The new multi-functional building by Sergio Croppi at Clusone mediates between the planarity of the piazza in front of it and the sinuosity of the mountains on the background: the project therefore successfully defines a constructed horizontal plane on which, ideally, the Alpine peaks on the background are highlighted. The L-shaped building consists of a continuous three-story base which anchors it to the terrain. From this emerge, on the side opposite the road, three blocks separated with two other floors, which seem to wish to harmonize with the hilly environment in the back. The idea of hills and mountains can be glimpsed in the barrel profile of the covering and the concave-convex structure of the covering proposed near the terraces. The connection with the piazza is emphasized by the stone lining of the front of the buildings, designed as a series of overlapping stripes that reinforce the general idea of horizontality. The façade treatment creates a stark distinction between the windowed parts, lined with aluminum sheet with micro openings, and the entirely opaque parts, in which a light stone material was used, cream sandstone, attached to the walls in slabs 2 cm thick. The horizontal line parallel to the terrain of the piazza is accented by the rule which dictated the detail with which the slabs were laid: horizontally, the vertical joints are simply side by side; vertically, the blocks are separated by omega aluminum profiles measuring 3 x 2 cm, creating marking lines that further divide the surface of the façade. The strips obtained in this manner have all the same hight, with the exception of those in correspondence with the floors, which project their thickness to the front. The colors selected for this project make it stand out from the surroundings: among the ferrous components of the piazza pavement and the green of the natural environment, the yellow lining stones and the brownish metal used for window fixtures and finishings make a harmonious appearance.
