This Milanese building dating from the critical construction boom that swept through Italy in the 1950s has been successfully converted for use as office space for a renowned internet service provider. The host building interfaces with its surrounding via curved vertical surfaces in glass block and other frontage ranged with bands of windows. This unusually copious quota of daylight proved instrumental in meeting one of the project’s principal requirements, namely, besides addressing all the specific functional and operational specifications, the needs of each worker would likewise be dealt with an individual basis via intelligent use of light and colour. High priority was given to ensure quality in all core communal functions so as to foster easy interaction among employees, a category of worker which in this particular sector tends to be supplanted by technology.
The project gives an immediate sense of the distribution in which the open plan arena has been carefully orchestrated with coloured translucent pens to create separate private enclosures without actually interfering with the building layout.
The entire project exudes a sense of concentrated but understated complexity, handling the graphics, signage advertising and entire lighting project.
