provincial headquarters of Arezzo  
The project for the new headquarters of the Province of Arezzo is organised around various internal courtyards and a public space at the entrance. From the outside the building has the appearance of a medieval village with projecting towers, and is constructed in a single material and raised off the ground in order to maintain a sense of urban continuity.
The innovative internal organisation generates comfortable interior spaces, with the various offices organised vertically around the courtyards to ensure a compact design. In order to allow optimal exposure to the sun the offices are arranged in an L-shape around the courtyards, and the second floor is stepped back. Both the outdoor terraces and the presence of greenery help to create a more pleasant work environment.
