The building

The place of respect

A futuristic structure that is the Green Pea Manifesto

We imagined Green Pea as the most sustainable and beautiful building that we have ever seen. For a continuous search for beauty and also for a practical goal: to be able to transmit the values we believe in making them tangible and cozy to people. To be able to make these words concrete: from duty to beauty.

The project developed by the architects Cristiana Catino and Carlo Grometto has done more: it has created a place with the features of a natural organism, like no others exist. A building that invites people to discover the world of sustainability, demonstrating its beauty. To sum up, visiting Green Pea is a bit like walking in our Manifesto.

The architectural features

Green Pea was designed as an innovative and resilient element, sustainable in every detail, in order to allow the building to breath, in harmony with the human being and with the natural elements.

The building shell is made up of a steel rib and wooden sunshade slats: elements that create a texture in which vegetation is inserted, a real architectural material.

The roof of Green Pea is an additional facade: a roof garden that reduces the building’s environmental impact, bringing nature back to a former industrial area of Turin.

The 4 internal floors of the building are illuminate by natural light and characterized by the close relationship with the vegetation that surrounds and blends with the building.

A journey into sustainable values, in balance between outside and inside, between container and content, between beauty and Respect.

  • recovers: Following the philosophy of the second life, the building is built of recyclable materials - steel, iron and glass - and it can be completely dismantled.
  • respects: The wood of the outer shell comes from 2 harmonic woods of Val di Fiemme and Belluno destroyed by the Vaia storm of October 2018, thanks to the Legno e Sole company. The interior floors were made with recycled wood from the Cuneo valleys thanks to the Brondello company.
  • reduces: The use of Airlite paint turns the walls into purifiers, reducing air pollution by 88% and killing bacteria by 99.9%.
  • breaths: In the building more than 2,000 trees and plants grow, thanks to the collaboration with Vannino Vannucci, the greatest nurseryman in Europe.

The energy solutions

The Green Pea Building proves the effectiveness of the production of energy through the use of renewable sources that ensure high efficiency and reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. In fact the building is powered through geothermal wells, photovoltaic and solar panels, elements for the collection of wind energy and for the recovery of kinetic energy

These energy solutions are made cozy by the entire building. If you want to know more, in the GP Discovery Museum you can find paths suitable for all ages to discover how these technologies work in the most effective way we have found: through examples to touch with your hand.

  • Geothermic
  • District heating
  • Last generation photovoltaic
  • Last generation LED
