"I wanted to design a long, low, wide building, the ideal proportions in my opinion", is how the architect describes his plan. A clear horizontal volume, a box of light wrapped in a double skin of glass - u-glass plates with panes of glass behind them - adding rhythm to the angle of the sunlight and designing new relationships between interior and exterior, between public and private.
The structure is made of exposed galvanised steel in natural and white hues. Eco-friendly photocatalytic paints were used to reduce pollution.
The building's two levels are interrupted by interior courtyards created artificially. The interior space is uninterrupted and fluid, like a perceptive telescope allowing our gaze to pass interrupted, with clear glass walls modulating volumes and doing away with the detachment of different parts of the building.
The offices are on the ground floor, while the ethereal, neutral first floor provides the backdrop for the company's collections. The ceiling is covered with a metallic mesh which leaves the technological component visible while creating the effect of a vibrating, material surface.
