The project is located in a strategic industrial area, well connected with the main highway which brings traffic from the north to the south part of Italy. The site area is highly visible from the highway, and the client requests were to create a very strong and recognizible facade. The project, even in its extreme simplicity composition, aims to transmit the values of innovation, comfort, technology, relax and brand representation. Due to that, the facade represents the image of the building. It covers over 2000 sqm of company offices on two storeys. Precast concrete panels with a rhomboidal pattern in different sizes characterises the main facade. The facade will be visible during the day and during the night with appropriate light effects. From the office windows the employees will be able to experience the beautiful view of the Vesuvio vulcain, thanks to the visual studies done during the design phase. All the other side of the building will be made by a precast concrete panel with an unusual vertical texture. The back side of the building will host all the logistics infrastructures necessary for the company.
