Arpae Headquarter has won the Gold Medal at WAN Awards 2019
World Architecture News: Arpae Headquarter has won the highest Gold Award in the Civic category at WAN Awards 2019!
The new Arpae headquarters project represents a symbol of environmental and energy sustainability to such an extent that it has been included in the list of the ten most innovative projects in the world. The new Arpae headquarters was born from the idea of exploring the relationship between appearance and performance: the building, made entirely of wood, develops around a central courtyard that constitutes the core of the complex and functions as a climatic garden. The roof, the so-called fifth façade, is the design element that most characterizes the project, with a series of natural light ducts that give the structure an architectural identity and facilitate natural ventilation.
