HEADQUARTERS

To realize the objectives, and in consideration of the specific pre-existing conditions, the project started with an analysis of the entire facility to ensure that the design would not disrupt the memory of the area’s industrial past, while simultaneously focusing on new objectives relating to the workplace environment and sustainability. The analysis also included assessing the client’s needs and this, coupled with the urban planning parameters, led to the solution of a complex of four buildings set around two large biometric greenhouses- full-height spaces realized by voiding out the spans and enclosing them with full-height glazing. The greenhouses allow north light into the previously dark spaces, optimizing the building’s efficiency and workplace environment while simultaneously improving the building’s overall energy performance. South facing roofs are fitted with photovoltaic panels as well as micro-perforated mechanized shading to control heat gain through the roof. Additionally, mechanized shading is also used to control luminosity and glare in the offices. All the vertical circulation systems (stairs and lifts) are situated around the greenhouses, as well as spaces for group social interaction. The outer shell of the main building was left to respect the original dimensions, geometries, and exterior alignments within the greater context of this historic industrial zone. The facades were selectively replaced with high-performance metal cladding panels glazing.

Undertaken to create creative spaces for laboratories, showrooms and offices, the project includes the recovery of the facades facing the public roads (east, north, west) through the restoration of the brickwork, the replacement of the windows, and the demolition of the miscellaneous structures added over time. Within the perimeter of the building, in a bar-centric position, a large central court becomes the distributive entryway to the separate internal lobbies. The First Floor (+ 7.50) was expanded to complete the enclosure of the central court. The floor also includes select voids creating open, glazed patios obtained by the partial demolition of sections of the roof while maintaining the primary structure of the roof. Other terraces area created at the upper level (+ 11.47), set back from the faรงade and maintaining the overall volume of the original building. Divided into commercial units of various sizes for business use within the industrial shell, integrating the existing floors with steel supported mezzanines and inserting glazed patios to maximize the contribution of daylighting in the deep floor plates, the building is ideal for creative office use. A portion of the project includes a multi-story garage, completely integrated into the existing building shell. Some of the shed roofs were created by recladding and repositioning the existing metal trusses, while others were created by inserting new structural elements with characteristics and materials like the existing.

The need to restructure the historic site (also known as “Salone Pier Lombardo”) was seized as an occasion for a broader renewal of the way theater is produced and how to relate to the public. Completed in 1996, the Franco Parenti Theater is the first example of synergy between public and private in the cultural sector in Italy, bringing together Milan’s institutions, companies, and private citizens, with the aim of saving the theater from eviction. Renovated and renewed, the theater ensures the continuity of a vital space for the city.

RECENT PAST FRANCO PARENTI

THEATER

Also known as “Salone Pier Lombardo”, Teatro Franco Parenti is an institution for independent theatre and study in Milan. The goal of the new theatre project was to link the sets and the wall structure to create a modern theater machine that would bring together the character of the original theatre workshop with the notion of creating a venue that would be as open as possible to the urban context. The new theater is based on the concept of a continuous stage. The wood slats, which normally make up theatrical halls, run along a longitudinal axis that starts from the entrance, passes through the stage in the main hall, and reaches the double height foyer that overlooks the pool. The entire internal spatial distribution was revised to achieve the maximum connectivity between each of the environments. While, at the same time, the rooms needed to be acoustically isolated. The renovated theater can accommodate the performance of several shows simultaneously: one in the entrance area; one in the main hall; one in each of the two halls that flank the main hall; and also one in the foyer, extending right up to the entrances for the offices and the artists, where a platform placed in the window can be used as the stage for small neighborhood shows. The reinforced concrete skeleton, retained from the existing structure, has been treated and isolated. Piping is exposed, and has been painted blue, a characteristic of all the theater ceilings except for that in the great hall, where large acoustic panels in curved wood line the room, bouncing the sound back towards the last seating rows.

Located in Italy’s Brianza area, the building was originally constructed in the early 1940s, when Cassina used it both as a residence and a factory to produce its first industrialized products. Through the renovation, the brand wanted to keep the building’s existing features to retain the industrial history of the site. The objectives were to modernize the original stone structure and the subsequent extensions by restoring the entrance courtyard, adding a public lobby and developing new social spaces for employees.

CASSINA

The Brianza area has always been an important hub for Cassina’s furniture production, sales, and management, mainly because this historic area, renowned as Milan’s furniture district, offers interesting potential for growth and development due to the synergistic capabilities which are located here.

HEADQUARTERS

Cassina’s objective for the building renovation was “to allow the true essence of the headquarters to transpire, bringing it back to life in its purest form”. Patricia Urquiola, Cassina’s Art Director, wanted to celebrate the industrial character of the 1940s facility, by restoring the entrance courtyard, creating a representative public lobby, and developing new collaboration areas for social interaction. Renovations were made to the existing administrative and showroom spaces adjacent to the factory. The overall interior design concept was to maintain the features found in other new Cassina stores and carry these colors and themes over to the headquarters building. Another design objective was to highlight the use of industrial materials to make evident Cassina’s historical industrial prowess on the building’s exterior.

DEL VAPORE

The objectives of the requalification of the main building, the “Cathedral”, were to simplify and remediate some of the previous interventions, creating a functionally autonomous building which includes various support spaces. Catering and reception areas are in the west wing, and the via Messina façade was opened to the outside, creating a more direct relationship with the exterior gardens and public open spaces. To achieve the highest degree of spatial flexibility to host a variety of temporary events in the large multi-purpose hall, the permanent superstructures were reduced to a minimum, preferencing maximum flexibility and project-specific installations for temporary exhibitions. The existing walls, entirely of exposed brick, were almost completely preserved. With the sole exception of the loggias, an aerated crawlspace was added inside the building to accommodate the new finished floor. The roof, supported by a wooden structure like the original one in terms of both materials and shape, consists of a wooden plank with overlapping insulating panels finished with a layer of interlocking tiles. The glazed roof is supported by a metal frame. The bar is enclosed with a full-height glass wall; from the square, it is possible to fully appreciate the brightness and grandeur of the bar space.

Relying on the concept of celebrating the connection between building and city, the restoration project also features a flexible, public space that can be programmed to host various events and activities. Besides serving as a location for temporary exhibitions, conferences, concerts, etc., the space is often utilized as a venue for civic events and meetings. The enclosed hall’s primary structure is a series of steel ribs fixed to rectangular beams. A secondary structure connected to the main structure (the steel ribs) supports the laminated glass panels of the pod. The finish material was chosen to emphasize the contrast between the sleekness of the pod and the roughness of the exposed concrete structure. With the idea of preserving the original identity of the space – the theme of the entire operation – all structures were constructed as removable superstructures. The supporting structures of the “pod”, the counter-ceiling (placed centrally to cover the MEP systems) and the new floor, laid on the existing one, were conceived as “reversible”. In the interspace between the new and the original floor, electrical, data, and air conditioning systems were installed to be easily moved and removed.

Some elements, including the old shed pavilions, had already been the subject of a preservation rehabilitation work completed in 2000. It is a particularly interesting post-industrial retrofit project, due to the intersection and coexistence of two different operational plans: rapid regeneration strategies and the objective of re-introducing nature into the building. The project involved the completion of the first requalification area; the recovery of the building facing via Morimondo; and the creation of a new concrete structure clad in glass and steel with an underground parking area intended to host the Casa Coming Soon Showroom- a laboratory of ideas and a gallery of contemporary art. The new building of just over 5.000 square meters is connected to the existing 5.000 square meter building via a greenhouse. The recovery and retrofitting work of the existing industrial structures provided for the restoration of the structure and the replacement of windows and doors. The masonry columns, part of the structure, were clad in concrete panels, while the steel structures, typically of cast iron, were reinforced where necessary. All purlins supporting the roof mantle had to be replaced. The replacement of the roof was done respecting the volume of the existing building and the original materials. The mantle was made with an insulating lining and clad in Marseilles tiles like the original material.

The former “Mercati Generali”, located along via Ostiense, about two kilometers from the Aurelian Walls and the Pyramid of Cestius, are part of a well-known area in a key location close to the old town and the train station in Rome.

MERCATI GENERALI

The original project “Mercati Generali” of Rome dates to the early 1900s with the construction of the first buildings beginning in 1913. Over the years, the original project was the subject of various modifications and additions that changed the building’s volume over time until when, in 2004, the general markets were relocated to the periphery, leaving the massive volume empty. The area then became the subject of a large-scale urban development, linked to the desire to redevelop the entire Ostiense-Marconi district through the programming of areas for public services, green areas, parks, and infrastructure. The current project recalls the geometric grid of the original project, restoring the existing buildings of the Recinto (Ring), building A, the fish market pavilion, building B, and buildings C and D. New buildings and squares are planned, creating a multifunctional complex which includes: a shopping district, a residence for students, a multi-screen cinema, a multi-story car park, a new library, a fitness center, an elderly care center, a restaurant and a religious center.

The project consists of two new buildings, one large and one small, the restoration of a former convent and two renovated small buildings (le Cavallerizze), each historically significant. All together, they frame a new public square and open up a diagonal pedestrian link through the courtyard of the 16th-century Convento delle Grazie. Engineering and architecture synergistically work together to create a sustainable, high-performance building whose primary aim is to enhance the use of public space. The main structure is a concrete shell that provides a continuous support to the post-tensioned concrete thin-slabs that span 12 m. The concrete shell touches ground at only two points, the building appears to float above the ground. The glazed storefront provides entrances to an abundance of freeaccess facilities like the media library, the 200 seat auditorium, the museum shop and the café. An integrated approach led the design team to solutions that maximized the value concrete brought to the project, concrete becoming a leitmotiv for the M9 Museum. Thermal mass is the leading energy concept. Energy consumption is reduced through the high thermal storage capacity provided by the concrete mass itself and the distribution of concrete walls around the building’s perimeter. The building is certified LEED Gold. A grand, scenic staircase leads to the upper galleries and event spaces. The permanent exhibition occupies two ‘black box’ floors, while temporary exhibitions are housed in a naturally lit ‘white box’ on the top floor. A meticulous approach to details and careful attention to lighting and acoustics create an extremely efficient spacious, column-free open gallery where natural light coming from the shed roof shed prevails. Relying on the brilliance of its polychromatic ceramic façade, the project strives to create a new identity for the city. By synchronizing objectives in terms of energy efficiency, structural performance, constructability, materials research, and systems maintenance, M9, the Museum of the XXth Century, is an icon.

Located in Largo Isarco, south of the city center, the complex is the result of the transformation and expansion of an old early twentieth century distillery which represents an important and innovative urban redevelopment of a large area, developed on a total area of 19,000 sqm. The project consists of two dimensions: the conservation work and the conception of new architecture which, while remaining distinct, contrast in a process of continuous interaction. Variety can be appreciated by the constant dialogue between old and new, horizontal and vertical lines, large dimensions and smaller spaces, open and closed environments. The project consists of seven existing buildings and three new structures: the Museum, a space for temporary exhibitions; the Cinema, a multimedia auditorium; and the Tower, a permanent exhibition space of ten floors. The new building provides a total of 2,000 m2 of indoor exhibition space across six levels, as well as a restaurant, a bar and a 160 m2 panoramic terrace. The 60-meter high Tower is realized in exposed white concrete. The new building provides a series of different exhibition conditions that together, with the other buildings, define the architectural vision of the foundation. The clear height of the ceilings increases from bottom to top, varying from 2,7 meters on the first floor to 8 metres on the last. The external faรงades are characterized by an alternation of concrete and glass surfaces, which allows exposure from a northern, eastern or western side on the different floors, whereas the top gallery space is exposed to indirect light.

TORTONA 37

An area of the city today known as one of the most dynamic in Milan because of its intrinsic characteristics of creativity and experimentation, the district has been enhanced thanks to the White and Green project. To this end the project was aimed at creating spaces that are dimensionally suitable for the start-up and development of entrepreneurial activities. The complex, which at first glance appears as a single, compact volume, consists of five individual building lots that consist of six floors above grade, resting on single, below-grade parking structure. Due to the buildings’ spatial arrangement around a courtyard, a central green space is the focal point of the intervention. Characterized by simple, rectangular forms, the lower levels up to the second floor have been designed to be completely transparent to ensure the visual connection between interior and exterior spaces. On the upper levels the façade is punctuated by laminated wood elements that support large, glazed openings and parapets of horizontal wooden slats, overhanging bay windows are entirely protected by wood sunshade elements. The five independent buildings are connected by metal walkways. A frame of self-cleaning white concrete completes the facades and at the same time is an architectural element that comes to life with the lights of the city.

The “Manifattura - Green Innovation Factory - Scope B” project in the city of Rovereto (TN) aims to offer a new production and experimentation center to businesses so that they can develop and operate in an environment that is fully innovative from an architectural, systems and energy design point of view. The development area is in the municipality of Rovereto, at the intersection of the Leno river with the Adige river, next to the historical buildings of the Manifattura Tabacchi complex. The project involves the creation of: • a large underground car park and technical area floor shared by the various buildings and made of standard reinforced concrete and post-tensioned prestressed reinforced concrete; • eight production buildings for individual companies and made of laminated wood; • three multifunctional buildings made of standard reinforced concrete; • roof structures of the complex made of laminated wood beams. The design meets the sustainability criteria that were identified as the cardinal principles of the intervention. The building solutions thus respond to the need of reducing the impact of construction on the environment by favouring the use of recycled and recyclable, non-toxic, and fast re-growth materials, components, and regional products.
