The new Snam business center is in a dynamic relationship with the new Eni Directional Center, with which it shares design planning approach and is compositionally and formally part of.
The Center is made up of a building conceived as a pure, light mass suspended above a sculpted, moving base. The design of the façade is inspired by the geological formation of the Earth, visible in the optical effect adopted for external cladding of micro-perforated metal sheeting. The mixed use of steel and reinforced concrete allow elegant solutions such as cantilevers and counter sloping facades. The canopy attached to the building is a green roof that winds up, visually connecting the main building with the surrounding area.
The higher floors provide maximum flexibility of use to meet the needs of the company both in terms of office space and in common areas, maximizing natural light. The Center has been designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
SCE Project has provided a full-service design service (architectural, structural and MEPF) during the final and executive phases. SCE Project has also offered a BIM and data management service with the aim of facilitating and optimizing the construction phase. SCE Project USA led the Project Management and supported the design through the coordination between the overseas architects with the local ones.
