Description:
The building occupies an entire city block bounded by Corso Bolzano on the west side, where the main entrance is located at n. 30, Corso Sebastiano Grandis on the north side, via Francesco Guicciardini Giuseppe on the east side and Severino Grattoni on the south side. The building typology is that of a compact building, which defines an entire city block, with two courtyards partially opened on the east side. These are accessible through a passageway for vehicles, normally closed, with an height of mt. 3,6. There is also a further entrance, this also with vehicular passage similar to the previous, which allows access to the underground parking throughout a driveway ramp.
The facades north, west and south are linear and develop mainly on eight floors above ground which are reduced to three floors, for a total of five floors above ground, toward the east front. Inside, the building is comb-set through a central atrium and a corridor, directly accessible from the atrium, leading to the north and south sides of the building. In the center and on the joints of the north and south sides are placed the three scales that allow the vertical distribution of the floors in addition to six elevators, four accessible from the central hallway and two from the main distribution corridor.
The central atrium becomes, on the upper floors, the main distributional element and from it is possible to have the access to the corridors of distribution spread in a similar way to the ground floor.
The planned works on the building are designed to achieve compliance of the building with care for safety in the workplace. Following this goal the main interventions were as follows:
- BASEMENT:
# 2 new technical rooms
# 8 Local Storage / Archives (max 200sqm)
