The design of the head offices of Hypo Group Alpe Adria, an Italian bank associated with an international group based in Austria is by Thom Mayne, the American who in the tumultuous 1960s invented a highly innovative and personal way of designing architecture.

Hypo Group Alpe Adria. Thom Mayne. Tavagnacco (Udine). 2006 Functionality, together with his ability to redefine space, are in fact characteristic of architecture designed by Mayne, winner of the Pritzker Prize 2005, the prestigious award presented to living architects who, with their work, have made a significant contribution to mankind and to the environment.
Built in just two and a half years, the structure cost 36 million Euros and is not the only building that Mayne has designed for these clients, who had already commissioned other projects from the Californian architect: their head offices in Carynthis and their Croatian head offices in Zagreb. Confirmation, then, which shows how Mayne's designs and architecture have given a huge boost to the group's image.
The building is located within the "Alpe Adria Area", headquarters which, in an area covering over 110,000 square metres, also houses a swimming pool in which the bank has invested 2.6 million Euros, donating it to the Tavagnacco town council.
