GOZZANO HEADQUARTERS, company’s premises
Cristina Rubinetterie, 2010 - 2012
Project in collaboration with the architect Paolo Rossi: restructuring of the existing site of the Cristina Rubinetterie company headquarters, which is developed through various buildings intended to accommodate different functions. The project included various interventions (new construction, partial renovation of buildings and interior design) with the aim of updating and making the image and usability of the spaces of the company headquarters more qualified.
The primary objective was the creation of a new order, cured, contemporary and able to create a “common thread” between buildings with a very different architectural nature. Thanks to the application of a new “skin” made from light stretched technical fabric surfaces and the use of color, a continuity is created between the various existing and new architectural volumes.
The new building is a horizontal volume facing the historic building which becomes the new entrance to the company. A dynamic and versatile volume. Dynamic because depending on the predominance of light between inside and outside the fabric facade creates greater or lesser visibility between inside and outside. Versatile because it guarantees the control of solar radiation inwards. From inside this new space, dedicated to the reception and the small showroom, you have total visibility on the outside.
All spaces have been designed with the aim of creating linear, efficient, dynamic but also welcoming and pleasant environments for the comfort of people. The new distribution layout has created a notable greater usability of the spaces, helping to reorganize the internal departments and putting previously separate units in direct contact.
New spaces have been recovered and brought to new life, such as the cellar, a forgotten warehouse, which has been transformed into a dining room for guests. Here, as for the reception, the showroom and the management offices, all the furnishings have been designed to a particular design and particular attention has been given to the choice of finishes and materials.
