Joseph Di Pasquale and his design team at JDP Architects, together with developers The Costim Group, are constructing a massive 70,000 sqm hotel complex for Chorus Life located in the northeast quadrant of the Municipality of Bergamo, near the Rondò delle Valli.
The project, Chorus Life Bergamo will see the application of GSM on an area of about 70,000 square meters, allowing the integration of the arena with 6,500 seats, a 1,000-car parking area that gives ample space for electric vehicles, a spa with a medical center, 20,000 square meters of equipped greenery, cycle and pedestrian paths, the hotel with 110 rooms and 74 rental residences, with a fee that includes the many services provided (from connectivity to utilities, from amenities to everyday services) entirely managed by the technological platform.
Within the functional mix that characterizes the entire master plan, the accommodation business is located on the southwest side of the site.
Particular attention was paid to the hotel volumes which constitute the southern terminal of all the buildings built.
The building plays this role by placing itself as a “crossfade between construction and greenery.”
The park laps it to the south and climbs onto the base following the horizontal lines of the sunshades that gradually slope down towards the unbuilt space.
On this green base rests a pure architectural volume, as if suspended, whose strong projection stands out above the green cascade of the base.
The volumes rotated by 45 degrees help dilute the full volumes of the buildings in the empty space of the park, in visual relationship with the greenery, forming a sort of prow that seems to furrow the park separating it from the access road.
The hotel will have 120 rooms, will be of the 4-star superior category, and will be developed on six levels.
The top floor will house the restaurant which will enjoy a panoramic view of both the new internal squares and the upper town.
Chorus Life Bergamo is a revolution in the real estate market and in the idea of living, which passes through digital servitization applied to real estate.
The urban regeneration project is the first field of application of the GSM (Global System Model) technological platform, created and developed by Τhe Costim Group, which allows a concept designed around the user experience in all its forms of satisfaction, usability, functionality, and where spaces become the meeting place and the means to provide services.
The revolutionary proprietary technological platform coordinates the new needs of the smart city and its inhabitants on several levels in an integrated system.
GSM allows plant systems and the digital infrastructure of buildings to communicate with each other through their digital twin, to ensure complete management integration and the best conditions for well-being, living comfort, safety, and respect for the environment.
The digital twin of buildings allows showing data coming from usually clearly separated sources and makes it possible in a visual context that is very natural for operators in the sector.
This allows building views that show the data of interest for specific types of operators, without limiting the origin of the data.
For example, a facility management operator through the CMMS system cannot control the occupation of the premises, while, thanks to the digital twin, it is possible to see the open tickets and the occupancy of a wing of the building at the same time in the model.
The platform, designed for its first use in the Chorus Life project, has the ambition to trace the path in which to lead an important change in the approach to the real estate market and the concept of “smart city”: to evolve the paradigm in line with the macro-trends of recent years, both of a socio-economic and business nature, such as digital servitization, with the aim of gathering the best technological partners present on the market, such as Gewiss, Microsoft and Siemens.
