Dominated by striking lines and glazed with accentuated geometries, Essenza suggests a harmonious dialogue between the rigidity of materials and the organic forms of the natural landscape. The residential building gives continuity to its surroundings language, while also contributing to the area valorization from an architectural and constructive point of view. By taking advantage of the close connection to the park, Essenza promotes the extension of its spaces in a sustainable marriage between architecture and nature.
