The building, location of an assisted residence for elderly and non-self-sufficient people called “Quinta Stella”, is located in the city of Tolfa and presents an architecture characterized by extreme modernity in lines and colors, that are giving a very welcoming look.
The V-shaped plan includes a main body, that is 65m long and 15m wide, from which stands out a 40m long secondary body.
It is made entirely of lightly reinforced load-bearing walls, with 20 and 15cm thickness, despite the structural spans that characterize it and the overloads expected for the particular intended use.
