For the project of the Arval headquarters in Scandicci – at the gates of Florence – Pierattelli Architetture has created an architectural concept that combines form, technological innovation, environmental and social sustainability.
Arval is one of the most important companies in the sector of long-term vehicle rentals and the new headquarters in Scandicci becomes an emblem of the focus on social and ecological sustainability that sets this company apart.
The building is called the Saetta fotovoltaica, and is now an architectural landmark in the zone. It is certified for Class A Energy management by Casa Clima, free of emissions and self-sufficient thanks to the use of photovoltaic and geothermal systems.
The offices and shared spaces of over 7000 m2 are organized around a central north-south spine, giving the rooms a correct east-west orientation.
