The dimensions of speed and dynamics of the nearby highway are translated into an architecture that finds inspiration in the sophisticated and technologically advanced of super-fast boats world. The particular shape of the lot and highway constraints, lead the design to a triangular shape similar to a boat hull that slips between artificial hills that are functional to thermal and acoustic insulation of the whole area.

The green is integrated as an inseparable part of the architectural object becoming an important feature of the construction contributiong to its isolation and improving the quality of life of the users. The volume carved at the base by large inclined baffles in concrete, which integrate the functions of insulation and energy saving, is freed on the first floor becoming an aereal and bright architectural element, defined by a plate fixed to the prefabricated building below, is structurally released.

In this part of the building, free and totally made of glass, open space offices are distributed where the structural elements are limited around triangular patios and along the irregular perimeter. The roof, is rotated according to the solar orientation in relation with the shape required of the ground floor and is provided with lugs that serve as solar shading. The by the triangular openings of the patios guarantee the comfort of natural light diffused to the entire the operational plan.

An advanced plant with technological systems that use renewable energies such as geothermal and solar PV, responds to the prerogatives of a Class A building. Through the exploitation of ground water for the climatisation with heat pumps, high efficiency is optimized thanks to the presence of an anti fire water reserve. In addition the ground water also feeds the irrigation system of the surrounding parkland.

Natural lighting for the office space offices, in different seasonal conditions, is guaranteed by a proper orientation of the façades and a balanced use of the projections related to the almost all-glass walls. The use of glass is weighted in accordance with a high classification efficiency, while it remains an element of prestige and strongly characterizes the working environment.
