AB MEDICA Headquarters in Milan, Italy by DEGW + Giuseppe Tortato

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Article source: DEGW

Offices are not usually designed inside a speedboat, but that is the metaphor chosen for the new headquarters of AB Medica in Cerro Maggiore, a project by Giuseppe Tortato. Specialists in developing and marketing sophisticated robots for medical purposes and DNA analyses, AB Medica opened its new headquarters in 2015 inside an “iconic” building in a suburban setting close to the high-speed Milan-Varese motorway, which is inspired by the distinctive shapes and forms of super-fast speedboats. Starting with a dynamically streamlined work of architecture that is also intended to embody the owner’s corporate philosophy based around innovation, AB Medica commissioned DEGW to design a new Space Planning and Interior Design project suitable for an unusual layout (partly due to constraints associated with an elongated triangular building lot) and capable of optimising all the spaces: a project, whose various operating levels encompass approximately 2000 m² of offices over an overall area of 9000 m² serving about 130 people, mainly focusing on the reception areas, ground-floor canteen and waiting area, first-floor client/meeting area and second-floor executive area and offices.

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: Studio FUKSAS 

The De Cecco Headquarters are an architectural landmark rising above an area of considerable town development. Two “edifices” linked by staircases and lifts, stand distinctly separate one on top of the other. The elevations of the cube-shaped lower part feature floor-to-ceiling glazing which hollows and lightens the sense of volume.

To strengthen this condition, it is proposed that a fundamental principle the idea of continuity space, where the measure proposed architecture, space and structure compliant reference. The building does not look like an object suspended within a batch but an element that builds the site, integrating coherently open spaces, built spaces and relationships spaces. The extensive scale of the intervention allows, despite its bias, to identify a mode of urban construction that exceeds the factionalism of the atopic background. The architecture is contextualizes alone, in the sense thatarchitecture builds the site, opposing dispersion and peripheralization, extent and identity, without falling into a historicist interpretation of regressive.
