Office building

The refurbishment of a two-storey building in the municipality of Brugherio (MB) involved optimising the distribution and functionality of the offices, providing the spaces with systems and aesthetic features designed to guarantee the flexibility and comfort of modern working environments.

The building’s interiors were outdated, the spaces were not very functional, the systems were inefficient, and the external façades were disused, with scratched plaster and exposed concrete in some places. The entrance was not identifiable at all and some architectural barriers prevented access for people with reduced mobility.

The design proposal solves the building’s problems and improves the quality of the interior spaces and the external appearance.

The large overhanging window, the only characteristic element of the building, acquires a contemporary look with the replacement of the lighter, high-performance windows and doors, making the facades a distinctive element.

The lobby on the ground floor becomes brighter and more welcoming, and a pathway leads to the open space of the computer workstations, a large, flexible space whose layout can be changed in the future according to the company’s needs.

The upper floor is completely renovated: archives and technical rooms are concentrated in the centre of the space, leaving workstations, offices and a small auditorium on the perimeter to allow more sunlight.

Comfort and harmony in the workplace
