The designer’s description

A new body of offices with an elliptical shape, has been constructed, facing towards the street facade as much as allowed by the city regulations.

In doing so, the new building has become the protagonist of the new corporate image at the industrial development.

A thick skin made of black polyethylene pipes intertwined together, as if it were a wicker basket, endows the new office building with an abstract character.

Its rounded shape evokes organic, rather than architectonic shapes, enhancing the proposal and thus standing out in the environment of the industrial development.
