PARKING & PUBLIC SPACES emptying and redefining

Caslano with its well-connected infrastruture with the FLP line provides high value in densifying the town with intensification of public activities. The approach to densify is not to pack the place with the maximum amount of people but instead to fill up the void space with quality living infrastructure.Thus public socialising spaces are suggested on specific locations to anchor the spirit and create a stronger presence to the void place.
