Designed by architect Gino Valle (1985-1988), the whole building can be seen when travelling along Corso Jervis to the city centre. It has five blocks creating a wide curve laid back from the road connecting with the Olivetti Office Building.
The building is six floors high and has a façade that alternates long windows – marked by round pillars and a stretch of cement sidewalks – and striped brick masonry. The recessed white PVC windows and screened by pale coloured curtains to protect each glazed module from the sun thus changing the façade depending on the way in which they are opened or closed.
This building completes the construction of the area and the development of Ivrea into a city offering industrial services between the 1970s and 1980s underpinning Olivetti’s strong company corporate identity.
