Project details : The basics of its arrangement consist in the juxtaposing of two volumes linked to concepts of aerodynamics, as represented by the great hanging wing-shaped pavilion, placed in a flight position, supported by another, staggered-axis wing positioned vertically on the ground. As regards the use of main sustainability-in-architecture factors, the complex interprets the most recent experiences of passive bio-climatics. The degree of exposure to the sun’s rays of the outer surfaces and façades has been analyzed in relation to the building’s usage times: the wing shape is closed towards the South, and the glazing facing East and West is shaded during the usage period. Fundamental concepts underlie this work, like its high functional capability, pleasantness for people using it, the presence of nature and the attention paid to the esthetics. The plasticity of the volumetric forms free the building from the rigid blocks that generally characterize areas destined for high foot-fall rates, the dynamic design of the interiors facilitates socializing and the huge glazed surfaces amplify the space perception. These features make the restaurant a balanced work, able to fascinate people without losing contact with its technical side, its sustainability, and that which is more fundamental surrounding it: nature
