Redesign of the square in front of the oratory of Porta 
Porta, Brissago

2023 – 
In the course of the renovation of the village centre and the Via Costa di Dentro, the square in front of the oratory is also to be redesigned.

The basic idea is to create a meeting area including recreational areas, circulation areas and parking spaces.Small interventions help to restore the former division of the area into two small connected squares.

Since the morphology has changed completely in the last 30 years, there is an opportunity to show the old traces of some buildings and walls on the new pavement. These traces help to shape and zone the area around the oratory.
