Inaugurated in December 2019, in Marostica’s industrial area, Pizzato Elettrica’s headquarters is an industrial complex that satisfies the client’s request to work in spaces that combine the perfect efficiency of the production plant with an ergonomic environment for human well-being; human beings shouldn’t have to adapt to working conditions, rather, working conditions should be organised so as to respect their needs.

With this in mind, the architects aimed for a correct integration between the spatial, technological and plant components to obtain maximum environmental quality paired with energy sustainability.
Working conditions are now optimal thanks to air quality as well as temperature, acoustic and visual comfort. Natural light enters abundantly from the skylights, internal courtyards and glass windows with a view over the northern scenery. The east façade is characterized by a rhythmic sequence of tree-shaped metal columns that support the sunshades which protect the office windows.
“Sustainability” was also interpreted from an architectural viewpoint following the concept that practicality and affordability give birth to the most noble architecture: simple building solutions, clear distribution systems and sleek style contribute to give an “industrial” image capable of taking up the challenge of time.
