September 2019 marked an important milestone in the growth of CFT Group. In fact, the new office pavilion of the headquarters in Parma was inaugurated. The project of the new building focuses on design and environmental sustainability,
The new architecture has been added to the existing “city” of CFT Group, which consists of manufacturing facilities, “courtyards” for logistics, lived-in spaces where a variety of production activities are carried out, both material and immaterial.
This extension is therefore another section of the city, connected to the existing offices by a bridge which is home to meeting rooms and recreational spaces, corridors and staircases intended as collective spaces, the “auditorium” for conferences, the winter garden and the external terraces, the offices distributed in clearly-defined compartments. The layout maximises the north-south orientation of the building and follows the Cardo-Decumanus alignment that typifies the Emilia region.
