The building designed for Salewa is a synonym for iconic architecture, while being sustainable at the same time. The project by Cino Zucchi Architetti and Park Associati is a reference for the territory, both for its composition choices – relation with the context – and its functional program which opens the corporate building to an interesting combination of uses.
Built on the edge of the city of Bolzano, it is conceived both in its relation with the landscape of the Dolomites and in the way it is perceived from the highway, becoming a new landmark. A reference also for its attention to energy consumption and the sustainable use of resources.
The decision to equip the building with the most advanced energy-saving systems has led the designers to choices that are structural in the first place; the materials used for the facade and aluminum skin that envelops the whole building were selected so as to integrate with the surrounding landscape and ensure first-level energy performances.
