The new industrial site of Sanlorenzo uses and explores the innovative design techniques of sustainability by applying green facades and green hanging elements to the buildings.

The Sanlorenzo “green” facade system is a sort of “vegetable skin” achieved using series of modular frames repeatedly fixed side to side. A solution that guarantees the maximum flexible arrangement , allowing the system to be applied on other existing materials. The second skin includes both exterior facades and roof coverings, that permits the growth of plants, creating the image of a continuous green carpet that extends throughout the buildings.
