Siracusa Lighthouse re-use

The design is based on a series of strongly characterising Signa: an horizontal line distinguishing the transition between land and sea without dividing them; a circular trace homage to the Sicilian region and its tradition and other volumes to link the different functions.

The wall, element which connects Siracusa to the lighthouse, visible both from the land and the sea, also during the day; it is used as an optical bench framing a perspective view around the existing building.

The program responds to the competition requirements: new accommodation and educational facilities integrated in the area, and above all, community gathering spaces, available for locals and for the whole Sicily.
