Ferrero Technical Center, a new level of integration between industrial architecture, natural landscape, process sustainability and worker well-being. Following the slow architecture approach, Frigerio Design Group brings to life an iconic and reassuring architecture built in symbiosis with its natural context.
The Ferrero Technical Center project , the largest Ferrero plant on Italian territory, represents the new frontier of industrial architecture, designed to respond to the principles of manufacturing 4.0, aiming for a production interconnected to its territory.
The new center is a bioclimatic building and certified nZEB (nearly Zero Energy Building), covering 12,700 square meters and housing more than 200 employees. Its architecture, which encompasses the coexistence of executive and operational functions, reports a simple and linear design, concealing systems and technical parts from view. The compact volume, on the other hand, maximizes all passive inputs and limits the resources for its operation and maintenance. Safety and sensory comfort finally, the values on which the entire complex is built.
WHY THE RAISED FLOOR
The use of the raised floor fits into the concept of “slow architecture” – emblematic of Studio Frigerio Design Group projects – as a modular and modulable system capable of accommodating the progression of spaces and potential future developments. The raised floor therefore, a solution that copes with change, capable of living through time and over time thanks to its flexibility, promoting ethical and environmentally friendly use of resources.
