Design: MFA Architects

“Where the technical problem is overcome, architecture begins” (L. Mies Van der Rohe)

A rural context and in opposition a big residential area suggested an impressive architecture, well-integrated into the surrounding landscape.

Technical Center

The volumetric model was inspired by the Alsatian architecture’s archetype, which repeated, permits to get a variable volume, suitable for a public building. Therefore the most remarkable sign is the roof that unifies all the functions under an unique architectural element.

Technical Center

Peculiarities of site, suggested us to design a sole building. The concentration of the first phase functions in one place will permit notable economic savings and will facilitate building’s management and maintenance.

Technical Center

The proportion of the building defines a strong but simple architecture, a building that even though can be defined industrial still keeps familiar thanks to the reference of pitched roofs.
