OCEANO Office building
with Polis S.r.l.
The characteristics of the area and the urbanistic laws oblige to plan a 5 floors building so each floor should have a very large surface (about 2500m2). The goal is to organize every floor in the most flexible way for its distribution ad its functionality. The lack of a specific program leads to design a building that could be rented to several companies or just to one.
The project design starts from a courtyard typology with a central distribution core that permits a correct illumination and ventilation to the offices.
Each floor could be divided in 4 independent macro-areas. Each macro-area is provided by a courtyard and an hanging garden. The generator module (1.5m wide) permits an additional division into little offices by some mobile walls.
The formal composition of the building is made by orthogonal and parallel lines on the plan is repeated on the facades by the vertical and horizontal structural elements. The rhythm of the lines aren’t homogeneous and are interlaced to each other to compose a volume where no direction is prevailing.
