Project Description

The project concerned the construction of logistic facilities in the Taranto Port area.

The two buildings, with an overall surface of 1,200 square meters, will be used mainly for tertiary services such as commercial activities and offices.

The layout has been conceived so to ease the construction in two stages, while ensuring the unity of the final result. The two buildings make up a homogeneous linear ensemble. Façades are finished with aluminium brises-soleil. The architectural result is that of permeable buildings.
