The architecture of this industrial complex has been determined by the surrounding environmental characteristics, dominated by the soft lines of the hills, resulting in low buildings in harmony with nature. The whole system of services is accommodated in a long curved volume that, together with the undulating landscape, is aligned along the parabolic form of the flow of the external pedestrian paths. The industrial façades are similarly designed and, with the intention of diminishing their visual impact, a separation was sought through the use of horizontal green bands placed next to simple overhanging lines below, made from tuff coloured prefabricated panels. In this way, the complex emerges from the field to form a whole that is an integrated and continuous portion of its surroundings.
