This design competition has been developed with an approach focused to environmental sustainability. This was guaranteed through following aspects: integration with the local context, materials and construction technologies, comfort, rational use of energy and water resources,safety, maintenance.These aspects, in a more or less important way, do contribute to the construction of a premise with low environmental impact.
The building was meant to be certified following the LEED NC protocol.
The general approach is the integration between the environment and the architecture details. Internally the building is composed by many different cores that are apparently distributed in a casual way, but follow a functional setting.
