Each building is constructed with great beams in laminated wood with varying curves, but all the same among each other: these beams, like in a big hangar, define the structure a single continuous openwork roof.

The almost obsessive repetition of the design of the double beam characterises this project, quite atypical among Bellini’s figurative work, maybe it can be read as an “evolution” of the greenhouse theme found at Villa Erba and in Giussano.

The project is articulated in three big buildings positioned around a “green patio”, organised with two series of terracing that converge at the centre of the composition.

The court/patio constitutes the main spatial nucleus of the new headquarters, and it is conceived as the principal visual element of the three structures that make it up.
