Sustainability and Well-Being at Forefront

Technological innovation and environmental respect, these are the values behind the Bonfiglioli Group's new headquarters in Calderara di Reno, featured in the prestigious architecture and design magazine "The Plan".

A detailed article highlights both the architectural aspects of the headquarters but also how these have merged with the company's commitment to sustainable design and for the wellbeing of employees. The structure, designed by Peter Pichler Architecture, represents a model of virtuous environmental management, integrating the principles of bioclimatics and circular economy within the EVO factory area. The design focuses on minimizing energy use, featuring a steel exoskeleton that supports a flexible workspace layout and maximizes natural light. A central open-air atrium promotes natural ventilation and creates a communal green space, enhancing the work environment and employee interaction. The building’s orientation and asymmetrical shape allow for ample indirect natural light coming from north, improving visual comfort without the harshness of direct sunlight. The headquarters, as the other new buildings of this area, uses the energy producted by the photovoltaic system, cause they are all designed to be Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) . These elements demonstrate the company's dedication to innovation, sustainability and improving the quality of life for its employees.
