The historic and central Piazza Garibaldi in Cagliari, over 6.000 square meters, a meeting place for the capital, has been redeveloped to make it welcoming and livable by the entire community: expanded, greener, without architectural barriers, equipped with a play area for children, fountains and wooden walkways under historical trees.
The project redefines the identity of the square, enhancing it on a functional and aesthetic level, using natural materials such as stone, iron and wood. In this context, the flooring of the green area, about 1.000 square meters, is shaded by large trees: for this area the Ipe Lapacho natural wood was chosen. Deco.
The finish, as desired by the client, fits perfectly into the context: from the aesthetic point of view it is elegant and unique in its pleasant shades of tone and, moreover, meets all the needs of functionality as highly resistant to an intense daily traffic, long-lived and without the need for ordinary maintenance.
Ipe Lapacho by Déco is a hard and compact exotic solid wood, guaranteed for years 35 by the installation immune to humidity, parasites and stresses to which, in most countries, the same class of fire resistance of the concrete is assigned. The slats, from 21 x 100 cm, have been laid with smooth side and visible screws.
As stated by Paolo Damiani, one of the company's three partners: "Déco, for this valuable urban intervention and great exposure, proposed Ipe Lapacho as a natural essence that offers extraordinary performance of compactness, resistance to wear, durability and an evident aesthetic value. The coating is also combined with the other materials used for the intervention, thus contributing to create that place of conviviality and functional and pleasant aggregation that Piazza Garibaldi aimed to become for the city of Cagliari ".
