Tower For Regione Piemonte New Headquarters
The construction of the Regione Piemonte Tower, close to the Lingotto area, is on a building area of 95,000 square meters and it is part of the master plan signed by Massimiliano Fuksas for the redevelopment of the area “Ex Fiat Avio”. The master plan consists of a total surface of 317,350 square meters and includes a large intervention of urban transformation that concerns the RFI (Rete Ferroviaria Italiana – Italian Rail Network) plots of ground and the ones where the Oval Olympic structure stands.
The tower, that will insert itself into the skyline of Turin, is going to be the highest in Italy with its 205 meters in height and 42 floors above ground and 2 floors underground. It will be able to accommodate 2,600 employees and over 2,000 visitors. The building consists of three main elements clearly distinguished by functions: the tower, where all the offices of Regione Piemonte are located; the underground courtyard on two levels that accommodates all the office services; the Service Centre, a formally independent building, connected to the tower that hosts the congress centre, the library, the audiovisual library, with the nursery at the base. The outer skin of the Service Centre is made of glass panels alternating with aluminium ones, both partially openable.
The volume of the Tower, with the 45 x 45 square meter base, is enclosed in an imposing double-skin glass façade, whose top will end with a roof garden. The entrance lobby of the Tower is characterised by a large floor-to-ceiling void where there are some transversal “blades” with different inclinations that refract light, creating a kaleidoscopic play of light.
The interior design of the project is curated by Fuksas Design; the engineering, structures and acoustics consultancy is by Ai Engineering and Ai Studio; the engineering consultancy is also by Manens Intertecnica; the structures are in collaboration with Studio Sarti. The geotechnical study is by Geodata S.p.A.
