Noivoiloro Civic Center

 

Noivoiloro is a private no-profit Association for the care of the disabled persons.  Because of total lack of public funding, 80% of activities is organized to finance 20% for direct assistance to disabled people. This has transformed it into the most important civic centre of the city in which a lot of activities are developed, from a cafe/restaurant with professional kitchen, a theater, dance laboratories, working activities, temporary dwellings and offices. In order to financial difficulties is thought as built by steps, with big programmatic flexibility, and as a sort of patchwork, with different materials.
It is located in a difficult environment in a predominantly industrial vocation, facing a “strip of loisir” with new urban functions related to entertainment.
