It is one of the most representative of the origins of the Autogrill Group: Villoresi West, created by Arch. Bianchetti and opened in 1958. Today, more than sixty years away, Autogrill returns to the territory of the same innovative spirit to write with a new and futuristic architectural sign another chapter in its history. The realization of this building marks a crucial step in the path of sustainability in Autogrill. A new model for the 3rd millennium, where innovation and technological evolution come into harmony with the development of sociological and environmental characteristics of the area
Winner of the national competition to design the new service area, Giulio Ceppi from TotalTool studio (with Starching and GeoEnergia) has been able to have more freedom in the concept of the building, the surrounding space and their plot-level architectural and landscape, creating a location perfectly integrated with the surrounding territory.
The structure emerges in the form of an “asymmetrical conoid” in a phased manner from the territory up to a height of 27.5 m. In terms of the effect of this energy, Villoresi East was conceived as a living organism technology, sensitive to natural cycles and fed through the innovative combination of solar and geothermal energy, the energy of the earth and the sun. A sustainability project to 360 degrees Autogrill has developed following the principles of the Protocol LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) with design choices and plant aimed at reducing the energy and environmental impacts and to ensure integration with the territory and the surrounding landscape.
