For the organisation of The Free University of Bolzano’s Tourism Management university course, the existing building of the former mathematical-scientific high school in Brunico, which stands under historical monument protection, was adapted and extended. The project was divided into the following three phases: reconstruction and restoration of the existing space, construction of a new staircase as well as the construction of a new underground auditorium with ancillary spaces, which can also be used as a public meeting hall.
