the building - consisting of two staggered longitudinal volumes - is conceived to be embraced by the two surrounding landscapes (industrial and natural) to partecipate to the working environment. This distribution creates two open courtyards: the former is tree-lined and welcoming for recreation; the latter is utterly green and clear facing the entire project area.
the double theme controls the entire design process being applied to the section and the facades.
The sections of the two longitudinal buildings are like two “S” with the corridor / office plan that is inverted on the floors: a completely blind side and a completely open side overlap, giving life to a radical work on alternating open / closed elevations.
Two are the main materials used for the external coating: black concrete (5 different types) and black glass (4 different types) to adhere to the industrial standards.
This architecture wants to merge with the area through its structure, while maintaining a poetic aesthetic through its one-color skin.
