The main core of the Energy Park technology park in Vimercate, just outside Milan, is constituted by the headquarters of Alcatel-Lucent Italia, the Franco-American multinational, leader in the sector of advanced networking and telecommunications technologies.

The complex is articulated over five block-like volumes linked by an ample central atrium with sinuous facades and generous spatial layouts. Enhanced by striking technological connotations, the buildings were conceived according to the most innovative principles of ecological sustainability. They host offices, meeting rooms, common areas, research and development laboratories, and a center for technical and management training courses. Designed to facilitate collaboration and maximize efficiency, the interior architecture and furnishings have had a positive effect on both the social relations within the company and on productivity. A sequence of geometrical forms and colors throughout the rigorously white spaces provides visual interest while creating environments conceived to foster interaction and privacy, flexibility and fluidity, in a context of maximum connectivity on both a technological and personal level.
