|X-42: UNDER THE SAME ROOF
||Naturno (BZ), Italy, 2011-2013
|The elementary shape of the double-pitched roof (connecting the Musterhalle, the Glass-tunnel and the new office building), beyond being a distinctive presence in production areas, also underlines and emphasizes, in this case, the sense of the word “extension”. It also became the design matrix of the new wing's north facade, where a border metal cladding follows its shape and works as a frame for the glazed surface. The north glass-facade hosting, on one corner, a 3-D company logo, works as a mirror for the beautiful natural surroundings.
On the southern side of the two-store office building a foyer, directly connected to the Glass-tunnel, hosts a coffee-break-box as well as a curved staircase leading to the upper floor. [see previous | see next]|
