Green Life Headquarter
Sustainability in its purest form
The new office buildings on the Crédit Agricole Italia campus in Parma, certified with LEED Platinum in 2019, are a prime example of sustainable construction. Planned by the architecture office Frigerio Design Group in Genoa, they harmonize with the existing buildings, offer a pleasant working environment, are highly energy-efficient and rely on sustainable building materials. The KeraTwin K20 ceramic facade system of Agrob Buchtal provided the project with additional certification points.
The new Green Life headquarters of Crédit Agricole Italia (a subsidiary of one of France's biggest commercial banks) is located southwest of Parma's old town on the edge of a large park. There are some buildings designed by the architect and industrial designer Vico Magistretti in the 1980s for the former Cassa di Risparmio di Parma as well as three striking new buildings of the architecture office Frigerio Design Group. The heart of the newly structured campus for a total of 1500 employees - 650 of them in the new buildings - is the single-storey forum with a surrounding glass facade and green roof.
