Headquarter, Bologna, 2013
The facility of Granarolo s.p.a. and its new headquarters, designed by the Open Project s.r.l. studio, are immersed in the agricultural landscape of the Bologna plain. Frassinago took care of the project of the greenery, referencing the geometric design of the architectures: metal threads delimit the lawns, while the alternation of monospecific borders in the flowerbeds emphasizes the vegetable and chromatic contrasts. The box hedges, offset, create a variable vision of the depth of field and at the same time manage to shield the technical areas. A restyling careful to the conservation of the salient traces of the landscape, like the big maple tree that gives shade to the main entrance.
