Architecture as a Corporate identity

Spizzico is the Italian fast-food brand operating in Italy, Greece, Switzerland, France and USA. The creation of a new corporate identity for Autogrill combining the red structure design and smart technology is remarkable: a rectangular building with round corners. The truncated-conical ALUCOBOND® panels fabricated with a “double calendered” technique knitted with patented buttons on the “ship prow” are used at the “drive in”, the lighting effects and signs. The concept was realised by high-tech resources and CNC work centres.

Keystone Office

The external appearance of the building takes up geometrical themes found in Czech Cubism at the start of the 20th century. The volumetric concept of the façade creates an ambivalently legible network of forms oriented in different directions.
