The new Amatrice school refectory by Stefano Boeri

After just 30-days construction period, on December 23rd, the new school refectory has been inaugurated in Amatrice, the small town in Central Italy that has been almost completely destroyed by the earthquake last August. 

The refectory building, signed by Stefano Boeri Architetti studio, is the first of a set of structures, built with wooden prefabricated modular elements, that will define a new open public space for Amatrice: a food hub that will give a job to more than 130 citizens and will regenerate the local economy. Besides the food services, the refectory includes a large multifunctional area with a great glass wall looking towards Sibillini Mountains.
