Abstract

A multipurpose facility for the village of Novaggio, Switzerland was designed to provide the following:

∙ space for a primary school for grades one through five

∙ a multi-use community space

∙ a storage area for the regional fire department

∙ a storage area for the municipality

A linear organization was chosen to create an easily organized and economically constructed building which might be easily expanded in the future. A low profile was desired and was achieved by limiting construction to one story. Indigenous materials and forms were utilized to create a minimal impact on the extant character of the town.
