The 6×6 m concrete tower stands 22 m tall at the entrance of a business park in a valley in northern Italy. Originally used as a wood shavings storage structure by a local carpentry, the five-storey silo now houses a workshop for prototyping, a material library, two offices and a meeting room connected by a 73-step spiral staircase. Large squares were cut into the façade to accommodate ample window fronts opening out onto different cardinal directions.
