Reale Mutua Assicurazioni,
Luxury Office

Elegance and simplicity are the result of meticulous and creative work. The façade of the Real Mutua Assicurazioni building, made with GammaStone Gres AIR Kerlite Bergen Base panels, shows the great mastery of the workforce and the incredible result in terms of lightness achieved by GammaStone Air technology. The new offices façades' design seeks to establish a dialogue with the context of the surrounding buildings (dated XVIII – XIX century), seeking an integration of material, colours, proportions, alignments and yet generate a point of gravity in the urban environment, through a rigorous and sensitive façade organisation, which is based on essential forms – with a longer stay over time and therefore able to escape the mutability of fashion.

From the point of view of design, the building aims to be contemporary and simultaneously intimately bound to the place. As if he had always been there, communicating solidity and permanence over time, values that represent Real Mutua and Turin.

The GammaStone AIR system allows the designer to safely specify large format panels. The panels are mechanically anchored with hidden or visible fasteners that allow a simple fastening to the support. Wind load resistance is far superior to any technical requirement imposed by current regulations even in climatic zones subject to extreme weather conditions such as monsoons and hurricanes. GammaStone AIR is a patent protected product. This project consists of an external cladding characterised by large windows with ornamental architectural elements. The alternation between glass and porcelain gres and the variable proportion of the dimensions of the windows give dynamism and modernity to the façade. These characteristics harmonise harmoniously with the traditional colour of ceramics, guaranteeing a functional and prestigious result.

Architectural Firm

Iotti + Pavarani Architects

Iotti + Pavarani Architetti operates in the fields of architectural design, urban planning, landscape and research.

The studio is engaged in projects from the scale of design to that of the masterplan, for both public and private sectors. Projects and constructions include workplaces (offices, commercial spaces, productive buildings), public buildings and spaces for culture, sports buildings, residential buildings, renovations, as well as urban recovery plans and landscape works.

The studio stands out for the design of architectures happily inserted in urban and landscape contexts with high environmental value, based on principles of environmental, social and economic sustainability.

The objective is the identification of program strategies, compositional, material, capable of producing dense inserts in the landscape, in the always pursued attempt to confer new "energies" to the contexts in which we operate, "energies" consistent with the often unexpressed potential of the places themselves.

GammaStone Gres Air

The choice of surface was oriented towards the GammaStone Gres Air Kerlite Bergen Base. For this kind of production, GammaStone uses only the highest quality, Made in Italy porcelain gres. This is a compact, hard and coloured ceramic paste, obtained from the sintering process at temperatures around 1200-1400°C until it reaches non-porous and waterproof vitrification. Porcelain gres guarantees excellent resistance to scratches, wear, UV rays, stains and even moulds.

Unitized Façades

This GammaStone Air cladding solution guarantees a high thermal resistance, contributing to the thermal insulation of the building despite the minimum thickness and high aesthetic value.
GammaStone panels are specifically integrated for unitized façades. All our solutions are studied from the point of view of thermal cutting, mechanical resistance and water sealing. Directly installed on the cell in an engineered way inside our plants, the panel and its system are assembled in the company, allowing savings in terms of installation times and costs during the on-site installation.
