Regione Piemonte Headquarters

Place: Turin
Customer: Regione Piemonte
Architect: Massimiliano Fuksas
Surface: 70.000 m²
Notes: ITACA Certification – In progress

The construction of the Regione Piemonte Tower, close to the Lingotto, develops on a building area of 95,000 m² and is part of the master plan signed by Massimiliano Fuksas for the redevelopment of the “Ex Fiat Avio” area.

The tower, which will fit into the skyline of Turin, will be one of the tallest in Italy with its 205 meters high and 46 floors above ground and 2 underground floors.

The building consists of three main elements clearly distinguished by their functions: the tower, where all the offices of the Piemonte Region are located; the basement courtyard on two levels that houses all office services; the Service Center, a formally independent building connected to the tower that houses the conference center, the library, the audiovisual library, with offices open to the public.

The volume of the Tower, with a base of 45 x 45 m², is enclosed in an imposing double-skin glazed facade, whose top will end with a roof garden. The entrance hall of the Tower is characterized by a large full-height void where there are some transversal “blades” with different inclinations that refract the light.

The building follows energy and environmental criteria and technical solutions which include: double skin facades, geothermal heat pumps, photovoltaic system, integrated daylighting controls, integrated building management systems.
