One Airport Square

Mario Cucinella Architects S.r.l as Architects

One Airport Square is a mixed-use building of approximately 17,000 square meters which houses a ground floor commercial space and a ten-storey office block. The meeting space for employees and for citizenship is valued and configured as a public square, open on the north-east side and at the same time protected from the commercial floor arranged in a ring; the ample space of the square is capable to host events and become an exhibition space. The building is characterized by a compact design that hides an interior atrium which has the function of providing light and facilitate natural ventilation in indoor environments. Predominant feature is the movement generated by the projections of the terraces, the size of which is reduced by climbing plan. Such variations in the section allow flexibility in the configuration of the environments. Another characteristic element is the concrete structure, whose inclined pillars give greater rigidity to the building and to the terraces, becoming decorative motif of the facade.
