The New Vergero Headquarter is the finalist project of an international competition. The aim of the competition is to communicate the key role of “Gruppo Vergero” in the environmental sector, through the design of a Headquarter that becomes a reference point in sustainable architecture.
Since the project site is along the Turin ring road, the aim is to create a landscape design that catches the attention and arouses the curiosity of passers-by.
Therefore, a “green wall” is placed parallel to the ring road and along the whole site, featuring a diagonal shape and overlapping the elevation of the Headquarter, which is also characterised by a diagonal trend but in the opposite direction. The diagonal shape of the elevation reflects the interior space as the maximum point corresponds to a triple-height space that emphasizes the entrance to the Headquarter.
The building is a linear terraced volume with variable height. It’s an architecture with a compact shape and oriented on the E -W axis to ensure effective environmental control and maximize the comfort of interior spaces.
