Italian Autogrill opened three eco service stations on Orte-Ravenna road with innovative constructions designed by Giulio Ceppi from Total Tool, Milano. The green roof, irrigated with rain waters, makes a high level of insulation and reduces the impact on the landscape.
The building construction uses polystyrene blocks that are fully recyclable and insulating material, which are then covered by a layer of beton. Air conditioning is based on a special low-enthalpy system of geothermal production.
All-in-all it allows to reduce Co2 emission by 75% while energy consumption is reduced to 35% compared with traditional cafeterias of this kind. Artificial lighting comes from LED technology and interior materials such as resin floor, are all natural and recyclable, too.
It's a really unique sustainable project that will be now developed further.
This sustainable architecture is a great example of how design can impact our daily lives!
