The project for the Third Tower of the @regionetoscana developed together with @ipostudio_architetti and @aei_progetti won first prize in the international design competition organized by the Region and concluded last March.
The Third Tower constitutes a new landmark and the heart of the re-development project of the Tuscany Region Business Centre.
The current urban aggregate is redefined, transforming a disconnected space into a single, usable, safe and pleasant complex, all this possible thanks to the integration of sustainable strategies, with particular attention to nature-based solutions, developing a green and blue infrastructure which, together with the choice of materials that have a high solar reflectance index, acts synergistically to reduce the environmental impact from both a hydrogeological and microclimatic point of view.
A connection plate functionally unites the Third Tower to the existing ones and its roof houses not just a simple green roof but a hanging garden, a real “high altitude park” full of vegetation and shaded spaces, which offers various opportunities.
The construction is expected to be completed in 2027/28.
The project intends to enhance the concept of Biophilia: the vegetation is grafted from the park into the buildings, sometimes in the form of internal gardens, sometimes as a "Sky Garden" and a visual beacon into the city’s panorama. Through these elements we experience the creation of a new habitat, a hybrid model in which the concept of work is radically transformed. The new tower offers informal walking spaces and spaces for aggregation and sharing, in line with a contemporary concept of work and productivity. Following the principles of the WELL protocol, the intervention embraces the concept of Human-Centered Design, putting people's needs and well-being first.
The overall energy strategy is based on:
- a performance casing,
- a plant system powered by renewable sources (geothermal, photovoltaic and aerothermal),
- a regulation and control system efficiently calibrated to the needs of the various environments and capable of containing both consumption and indirect production of CO2.
The facade screening, a geometric element that envelops all the buildings, is the architectural symbol of the redevelopment of the complex, which starts from the third tower and also embraces the facades of the two existing towers.
