The new business offices of the Reale Mutua Group are centrally located in the historic centre of Turin (on the edge of the southwest side of the castrum romano), replacing a previous building from the 1970s, and near the historic headquarters on Via Corte D’Appello, with the possibility of constructing a true Reale Group Campus.
The new space includes approximately 800 workstations, 150 parking spots, and a conference hall that can accommodate 200 people. The project’s priority was to create innovative work environments capable of guaranteeing great comfort and optimal environmental conditions, while at the same time renovating the entire urban area through a vigorous yet sensible construction project that visually respected the surrounding context.
The new building is classified as a replacement project, a contemporary structure grafted into the heart of the historic centre, capable of maintaining a dialectical relationship with the area.
This innovative cladding system comes in pre-assembled frames that use lightweight composite panels finished with large format KERLITE slabs – a material that combines texture and colours which go hand in hand with Turin’s historic architecture and a lightweight façade technology capable of creating a modern effect. These composite panels provide the perfect solution to the angular elements and create a “full bodied” look.
