This simple observation leads to imagine a building that has to be the extension of the home environment, where you can feel at home among colleagues and friends.
A place of production, but with an aggregative value and capacity.
A beautiful, harmonious, elegant and stimulating environment where you can live. It is from these thoughts that the project of the new company headquarters arises. From the external setting you can understand the importance given to the visual perception, to the green, the routes, and the services offered.
Despite the property has no public access, it has several positive aspects, such as exposure, privacy and the possibility of setting up an easy-to-use road system, and above all the opportunity of guarantee each worker his own personal parking space.
The access system, the relationship with the neighboring building of low architectural quality, the environmental sustainability, the energy efficiency and comfort are the generators of the project.
These last features are already included in the wooden structure, a magnificent material for its ecological, sustainable, versatile and physical characteristics.
