The Hines business strategy provide that each apartment of low residence is sold “Raw”, leaving to the buyer the maximum freedom in the space configuration.
The peculiarity of the desing is therefore to “Provide” and “anticipate” any possible or potential special request of the buyers without introducing any “constraints” to Buyer “Fantasy”.
ARIATTA, already present as designer in the adjacent Hines site Porta Nuova Garibaldi, is charged in the 2010 with the final design revision already issued for tender.
The design review has focused on:
- Interdisciplinary coordination of mechanical and electrical plans with structures and civil works also due to a marked structural review.
- Operation, management criteria for plant and MEP power plant.
- Flexibility and reconfigurability criteria of systems with particular reference to Hines Commercial needs in order to propose to potential buyers the maximum freedom to modify and customize the dimension of each apartment.
