Residential tower, Varese

Light gradient

A volume that dialogues with the context and articulates its elevations differently with respect to solar exposure.
Prefabricated components and photocatalytic materials for construction, which are self-cleaning and transform through a chemical process pollution into clean air, reducing maintenance over time.

A rectangular floor plan of the building was developed, arranged planimetrically with the longest side parallel to Bossi Street, so that the volume by perspective effect, is perceived more slender and streamlined.
