H-FARM CAMPUS IN RONCADE, TREVISO
An Innovation Center in the Treviso Countryside
ZAA Zanon Architetti Associati
H-Farm Campus is a complex dedicated to education and innovation, where building and nature coexist in a fundamental condition of reciprocity. Located in Treviso countryside, the new buildings were constructed along the Sile River, adjacent to the company’s headquarters. The intention was to offer new spaces for education, from kindergarten to university, and related services, such as a welcome centre, dormitory, a greenhouse serving an on-site restaurant, a gym with playing fields and a large multipurpose building with a library and meeting rooms. The structures are no higher than two storeys, are immersed in the countryside and separated by ecological corridors. The landscape guided technical decisions: the large windows, patios, roofs and internal courtyards offer places from which to admire nature and immerse oneself in the surrounding landscape.
The project thus thrives on the reciprocal exchange between the environment and human life.
