officina vidre negre

within a parkscape encompassed by the hills of cuneo, italy is 'officina vidre negre' an office building by italian 
practice damilano studio architects. surfaced with faceted black glass and integrated PV panels, the split prismatic form creates 
a strong and dynamic profile amidst the landscape of native plantings. the facade is reflected within the adjacent water, 
which also serves to irrigate the vegetation. decomposition of the building volume becomes apparent within a series
of fragmented internal wings, allowing employees to experience the sequence of spaces illuminated with cuts and windows
as they pass through the corridors.
