PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The 25,000m² NOI (Nature of Innovation) Techpark in Bolzano, involved the refurbishment of two listed buildings and the construction of a new building, the “Black Monolith”, which creates an architectural bridge between the existing rationalist-style former aluminium factory structures.
The brief was to create an innovative technology park, NOI Techpark houses a wide range of R&D and innovation companies, university research institutions and training centres as an economic development engine for the South Tyrol region.

NOI Techpark is located in the former Alumix factory, built in 1937, once the largest aluminium factory in Italy. The factory buildings were entirely restored, bringing them back to their original architectural quality in a sensitive way using materials which were used in the past. We did this to a very high standard, honouring the site’s history. In the interiors, the new structures can be clearly recognize in the use of materials -such as glass and wood – these new office boxes are inserted in weave of beam and pillars. These suspended volumes create areas to relax, rest and meet.

The Black Monolith is designed to represent continuity with the past, both for functional characteristics as a workplace and for the materials. The façade is designed and made of aluminium foam, as a nod to the aluminium production of the former factory.
The façades of the Black Monolith have deep surface cuts for control of direct solar irradiation. The building envelope and mechanical and electrical equipment, included FV panels, are designed to achieve carbon neutrality.
NOI Techpark achieved LEED v4 Neighbourhood Development sustainability certification, first in Europe, second in the World.

SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

NOI Techpark, with a with a carbon neutral footprint, achieved in 2017 the LEED v4 Neighbourhood Development sustainability certification, first in Europe and second in the world.
To achieve this goal, we adopted an integrated energy design (IED) from the earliest design stages. In this process was involved the Client, end users, architects, mechanical engineers, research institutions and private companies.

Groundwater extracted from an aquifer provides a cooling system for the plant, while stack effect ventilation regulates temperature throughout the year.
In the “Black Monolith“ building aluminium foam panels with multi-wall composition retain heat during the winter and shield from heat during the summer. The panels and the insulated glazing also allow for good external/internal acoustic absorption. The building envelope and mechanical and electrical equipment, along with solar panelling, are designed to achieve carbon neutrality.

NOI Techpark is one of the largest infrastructure projects of the Region of Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy. LEED ND Plan certification credit the project also for Access to Quality Transit and Bicycle Facilities, within the Smart Location and Linkage section. NOI Techpark surrounded by more than 20 bus stops, a train station within a 400-meter reach, and a well-established bike lane network that connects our location with the city center in approximately 15 minutes.
