The opportunity to open up this perimeter and let it be a part of the urban pattern has heavily conditioned every design choice: the entire settlement is conceived as permeable, an integral part of the park; the public interior of the area is not just conceived as a destination, but also as a passage, where the public space is hybridized with the private.
The base is designed as a part of the landscape, passing fluidly through the volumes above, linking the different levels of the existing structures.
A gigantic order of pillars supports directly the first floor, which consists of a raised plaza, a large terrace facing onto the garden. It houses the community functions of the company, a junction of the circulation paths to the main and secondary office units.
