This new, hi-tech surgical prosthetics R&D centre is built around a central, vertical atrium, with overhead natural lighting from saw-tooth skylights perfectly oriented towards the north
For this new technology centre, the double-layer façade was based on stainless steel meshes combined with low-e glass panes and ventilated stone; a modern image for this centre researching the application of technologies coming from other fields in the manufacture of custom-made implants of various types.
An outer reception square is planned that will enhance the building’s presence and allow public events of all kinds to be held there.
The central space, lit from above, also contains the building’s circulation spaces and provides for a circular spatial organisation centred around the foyer ramp and efficient from a functional viewpoint.
