San Lazzaro (Bologna)
New CONAD store and urban redevelopment area “via Emilia/ via Fornace”
The area, with a total surface area of 3.383 sqm, is part of a general urban redevelopment project through which the public space becomes a connective, qualifying and characterizing system of the various areas involved in the project.
The project allowed, through the restoration and partial demolition of an old existing supermarket, the construction of a new CONAD supermarket and a new pedestrian square (which occupied the demolished spaces), the construction of an underground car park, the creation of new cycle-pedestrian routes and the reconfiguration of a parking lot at ground level.
The new CONAD store is made with facing brick, a characteristic element of the urban context, with two large arches that frame the entrance to the supermarket, characterizing the access to the new square from the main street.
