Nuova Sede Centro Edile Andrea Palladio in Vicenza, Italy by OFL Architecture

 
May 18th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

The new Andrea Palladio Building Center is made of a structural skin evoking nature, like tree branches that by weaving themselves create a dynamic façade made of steel and glass. The arches on the ground floor evoke the architecture of the Renaissance, and suggest the idea of an ethical and emotional architecture. Steel and glass together, combined as something organic and dynamic, allow the building to be in harmony with the context. The shielding front is made of mirror glass panels with a thickness of 10 mm. They have the double function of reflecting the natural environment and protecting the building from the sun. The glazed turbots, generated by the external structure, and the plastic tubes that pervade the entire building have been designed in order to enable the sectors to obtain an adequate level of lighting comfort.

Interior Entrance

This building generates a metamorphosis with its surroundings because it reflects and emphasizes his beauty merging it with the context.

Interior Laboratory

A first layer of “smart pipes” leads the air from outside to inside the building while a second layer of “smart pipes” uses rainwater collection tanks positioned on the roof of the building and spread, as roots of a tree, in the whole building. Both layers help to reduce the heat load of the front and to adjust the light input through different geometries of shielding for the whole day.
