Teuco/Guzzini Office Blocks
Landscaping, water and sunshine characterize a building, compact over by the road where a sloping lawn absorbs noise and a system of vertical chimneys connected by the gutter channel which projects its image at high speed, contrasting it with striking structural forms that pedestrians can see on the inside front featuring an apse and “place/square”. he north front is cooled down by a film of water running along the
“cold” chimneys; natural ventilation is enhanced by the gap with the south front (large glass-clad walls with black absorb-ing/radiating cavities). The east and west fronts are protected by “vertical gardens” providing shelter against the summer sun but letting the winter sun in.
The “green curtain” creates a distinctive image, lets in air and allows the windows to be opened and cleaned.
