Enrico Sassi Architetto has revitalised Ghitello Mill Park in Switzerland through landscaping, adding a public courtyard and pedestrian pathways.
Mulino del Ghitello is an old mill located at the access point of the Breggia Gorge park – a canyon in the South of the Ticino region – which is a protected natural area and one of the most important geo-topes in Switzerland.
The project, which is part of a larger programme to revitalise the park, aimed to revive this ancient gate through the restoration of the public courtyard.
The creation of a pedestrian and educational path for disabled people serves as a place where they can learn about the geological and rocks composition of the natural landscape of this important site.
