The renovation of Enel’s headquarters, which covers a total surface area of around 80,000 sqm (861,100 sq ft), has been designed to increase personal wellbeing through the provision of modern, comfortable workspaces conceived around the concept of a more agile organization. The bespoke curtain wall engineered and produced by the dedicated team of Permasteelisa Italy for the re-cladding of the original building provides high-level of performances and offers a view through the sequence of architecture and surrounding greenery. The lighting and air conditioning systems will ensure the utmost comfort while the distribution of the rooms will alternate working environments with green indoor and outdoor spaces and areas devoted to mental and physical wellbeing. The building will also feature additional employee wellness facilities, with the existing crèche, canteen and auditorium, all complemented by a new gym. The building's sustainability and comfort will be assessed by external international bodies, with the aim of achieving the LEED and WELL certifications at Gold level.
In order to optimize the layout and design of Enel's historic Rome headquarters, the project by ACPV ARCHITECTS aims to develop a “building-city”, where the towers of the central structure are balanced against the new transparent walls of the cladding. The glass of the new façade offers a view through the sequence of architecture and surrounding greenery.
The new offices will be developed around the innovative principles of bioclimatic, sustainable and biophilic design. The project was designed using a digital model (BIM) which collects and displays information and 3D graphics throughout the project's life cycle, enabling the more efficient and sustainable management of both the construction works and the subsequent operation of the building.
Design & engineering, manufacture and installation of 31,000 sqm (333,700 sq ft) of façades for a total of about 40 different types. 23,000 sqm (247,600) of unitized curtain wall with vertical glass brise soleil profiles in the area facing viale Regina Margherita; 8,000 sqm (86,100 sq ft) of stick system façade, including the 900 sqm (9,700 sq ft) skylight photovoltaic façade on top of the atrium, doors and sliding doors systems.
