As in the Massimo Dutti Headquarters experience, the project proposes an open palafitte structure that allows access to the building and parking through the ground floor.
The plan comprises three longitudinal zones: the central one hosts four access points and services enhanced with better lighting and ventilation by four courtyards. The other two contain workspaces. The north-oriented zone is for product design and development. It is the widest, measuring 37 meters, and is naturally lit through the glazed facade. The south-facing zone hosts areas that require compartmentalization such as meeting rooms, showrooms, private offices, e-commerce, etc. There is also a double height hallway, an open staircase, and glazed elevators. There is low solar incidence in the area, so the facades are glazed. Even so, the east and west ones are protected with vertical fins and the south one with horizontal fins.
The building has been awarded, like the one for Massimo Dutti, the USGBC (United States Green Building Council) LEED Gold certification for sustainability and energy efficiency, with particular emphasis on the use of courtyards, technological skins, and the treatment of the ground floor as a ventilated outdoor space for parking.
