The Rome-based Fuksas Architects realised this new business building in the southern Italian city Pescara. The complex is the result of integration of two simple elements: a low height building with a punctured plane and the “annular” building sitting on top.

Here is what the architects explain:

The dynamic three-dimensional structure of the rounded building punches the straightforward structure of the “holed” lower volume, linking the two bodies in a whole element. Natural light is brought to the office levels through the floor openings. The random position of these apertures creates diagonal views through levels.

The water plane at the sixth level recalls the river Pescara where the city takes its name, creating a perfect place to meet and rest. These complex establishes itself as icon of early twenty first century architecture.
