New video created to mark NOI Techpark’s first birthday in Bolzano, Italy

A new video has been created to mark the first anniversary of the opening of the beautiful and sensitively realised regeneration scheme at NOI Techpark in Bolzano, Italy.

The video features some of the 394 occupants of the complex, most of whom work for technology R&D companies or the local university.

The NOI (Nature of Innovation) Technology Park development in Bolzano involved the careful refurbishment of protected industrial buildings and the construction of a new building, called the ‘Black Monolith’, which creates an architectural bridge between the existing, rationalist-style factory structures. The new complex is designed to house a wide range of innovation companies, research institutions and training centres.

Chapman Taylor’s Milan studio conceived and designed the technology park in collaboration with local architects Studio CL&AA. This striking project is carbon neutral and has LEED ND Gold sustainability certification.

We wish everyone at NOI Techpark many more years of success at their new home.
