LEED 2009 BD+C (Core & Shell) Platinum
The project plans to enhance a single, horizontal and single-storey structure, creating offices where quality has been emphasised by the view of internal courts and choices oriented towards the sustainability of materials, high performance in terms of thermo- acoustic insulation and the comfort of working environment obtained by means of energy efficiency and natural light control.
The design of the inner spaces for offices follows two main guidelines: the quality of the work spaces and the collective dimension of the common areas. At the scale of detail, the project is based on the vertical rhythm of the aluminium panels and the doors and windows that make up the façades.
The building finds its architectural feature in the dialogue between dull, rough surfaces, in fiber cement and pure, glazed, transparent and reflecting surfaces that change their appearance in relation to the light incidence. The main façade with the semi-reflecting lining and the‘funnel-like’ geometry converging on the entrance, leads those who approach the building towards the internal courtyard where, thanks to the large transparent glass façades at full height, its contents are revealed.
The project has achieved LEED Platinum certification.
Ventilation + Heat recovery
Water-saving sanitary appliances
Sustainable building materials
Low-emitting materials and finishes
Sustainable sourced timber
Landscaped areas with no irrigation
Recycling facilities provided
The project includes access to M2 subway and bicycle facilities and showers to promote sustainable transport. Open space area equal to 63% of the total project area, a green roof and high reflective materials have been provided to promote external use and reduce heat island effect.
Water savings of 43% has been achieved using high efficient fixtures. 75% of water saving has been achieved for irrigation using native plants and high efficient irrigation system.
The project reduce the total energy cost of about 35% compared the baseline. 15% of the whole energy consumption is covered by a photovoltaic system.
During construction 94% of waste have been recycled. Recycled and regional materials have been used in the construction phase (about 20% and 30%).
FSC wooden materials have been installed. Indoor Air Quality goals have been achieved installing an efficient ventilation system, installing materials with low VOC content and promoting external views.
