Intesa Sanpaolo is among the top banking groups in the euro zone. The Group is the leader in Italy in all business areas (retail, corporate and wealth management). The project, developed by RPBW studio, has as its main objective the tying of the building to the fabric and life of the city by combining private and public spaces and functions. The new tower, mainly glass-fronted, is 166 meters high with 43 storeys. It accommodates two volumes of equal size which can be used by the City as well: the lower one, with a transparent hall and a multifunctional auditorium, thanks to its flexibility can be transformed according to the event (conference, concert, exhibition) while the upper one, elevated above the city, accommodates inside a glass greenhouse, overlapping one another, a restaurant overlooking a garden, an exhibition room and a cafeteria with a balcony and a panoramic view. The Bank’s operational and executive functions are concentrated in the centre of the tower. The highrise is a bioclimatic building where specific design solutions guarantee the best levels of advanced sustainability. Technical solutions include: double skin facades, ventilated double slabs, ground water heat pumps, PV solar panels, hot water solar panels, integrated day-lighting and artificial lighting controls, LED lighting, demand controlled ventilation.
