The headquarters of the BNL-BNP Paribas Group building is a stunning example of how to successfully combine innovative architectural design with optimum comfort and wellbeing for the building’s occupants.

The project also stands out for its high level of commitment to environmental sustainability, which will see it certified as class A and LEED Gold, with reduced energy consumption compared to traditional buildings.

Designed by Italian company 5+1AA Alfonso Femia Gianluca Peluffo architectures, the building was created in such a way that it integrates into the surrounding urban environment.

Due to the clever structural glazing, the aesthetics are visually appealing, reflecting the building’s surroundings on all sides and changing its appearance depending on the time of day and the weather.

It helps transform the building into a mirage-like structure, whose appearance continually changes as it catches the reflections of the sky and the city lights, whilst at the same time avoiding being seen as an obstruction to views.

The aesthetics also provide the perfect transition between the Tiburtina Station and the surrounding residential districts.

As Alfonso Femia, Founder Partner, President and CEO at 5+1AA and project manager states: “With its dynamic, reflective colours, the glass in the building seeks its own dialogue with its surroundings and with the lights of Rome. Night or day, the glass provides unique, ever-changing light reflections, colours and transparencies.”

For the structural glazing, Guardian Glass supplied five different products from its SunGuard® range of solar control glass – SunGuard Solar Silver 10, SunGuard Solar Silver 20, SunGuard Solar Neutral 67, SunGuard HP 35/26, SunGuard HP 43/3.

Four of these providing a silver aspect, the other a more neutral appearance. All of these coated glass products provide different levels of light transmission and external reflection to suit the architect’s precise requirements.
