Rainbow s.p.a. headquarters - Loreto (AN), 2009
Complex of buildings, where are housed many activities. All elements are designed each with its own distinctive identity, often suspended and always mutually interconnected. The theme of the structural design, therefore, is to create autonomous core from the point of view of the seismic response, using supporting elements with the possibility of "controlled responses", such as armed rubbers or seismic isolators. Whereas area around Ancona is seismic zone of medium / high intensity, the cantilevered corps for a length of 13 meters, attached to the main offices corps, required a particular seismic study, based on a combination of prestressed structures in addition to a complex engineering montages about metal carpentry. Particularly original are the solutions adopted for the supporting structures of the photovoltaic panels.
