The property is perfectly integrated in the district, has been designed with the latest construction techniques: curtain glass with High-performing, double skin facades on the side facing west, insulated walls and ventilated slabs of Carrara marble. The wide area of relevance, as well as ensuring the preservation of a discrete area devoted to green, dilutes the urban texture harmoniously integrating well in the neighborhood skyline. These spaces have allowed the construction of a garage with three floors, including a basement and one in the open. Via a footbridge parking is directly connected with the offices.
