Ferrero Technical Center, Alba (CN)


Bringing together the natural and human components to create the new technical innovation center, an expression of corporate identity, excellence, innovation, passion and the people who have always represented the group and its industrial culture.

The main ingredient is the territory: the Langa, with its history and its people. The landscape, nature, and colors define a series of coordinated geometries to create a building in empathy with the environment in which it fits. Portions of the landscape are ideally cut out to construct the building, the natural colors and geometries characteristic of the place draw and define the architecture through geometric abstractions.

The Workshop is designed with a regular, “clean” floor plan, without too many structures in sight, so that dust and dirt cannot settle.

The Office spaces, on the other hand, are a real “field,” brought to altitude, a ‘landscape’ traversed by a path along which “flying gardens” and “light wells” meet.
