/ A refined play of volumes creates a public square and a lightened tower as a new landmark for the area and for the city
The new building being planned is to be built on a site that offers a great deal of potential both for its strategic position in terms of access routes to and from the city centre and for its proximity to new development of Citylife and Portello. These elements make this site extremely interesting for its overall visibility.
The composition has been articulated in a number of volumes, including an element that extends upwards 66.70 m, in such a way that it can be seen from many parts of the city. The top of the building has in fact been designed like a kind of lantern, a bright light that by day and night stands out from the urban fabric, creating a landmark for the whole area and beyond.
The system of access places the emphasis on the main entrance in via Gattamelata while through the use of sophisticated planning devices, the building highlights a new piazza that connects up to Piazza Tur as well as via Teodorico with a walk-through area, centrally located with respect to the overall layout of the building, this emphasises the high level of permeability of the site.
Inside, the building extends from the main lobby where all the main vertical circulation is situated.
