The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is a United Nations Agency that promotes the increase in agricultural activities of the member Countries. The IFAD headquarters is in Rome, in the Ardeatino district, in an entirely dedicated ten floor building – of which eight are above the ground . The building dates back to the seventies and went under a redevelopment work completed in 2008 which made it the first building in Italy certified LEED EB: O&M, Gold level. A space of over 300 square meters, dedicated to the “Roof Garden”, was designed on the roof terrace of the building. An exclusive creation that has found in Novowood the ideal solution. The terrace decking was made using the solid Novowood profiles Elite 145, in the warm Wood colour, that are well suited to the design of the hexagonal modules characterizing the decking. With the same profiles have been designed also hexagonal seats, which hold the flower boxes in their center.Read less
