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.

The Moscova house is a volume with rectangular plan, placed on the fifth and top floor of a nineteenth century building, situated in a street corridor connecting the ‘garden’ of the city of Milan, the Sempione Park, to “Chinatown”, whose pronunciation perfectly alludes today to that cosmopolitan quality of big and small cities. The longitudinal development of the plan measures 5×20 m: the elongated west side adjoins to a symmetrical apartment, presenting thus no openings, while towards east wide roof openings offer a broad view onto the skyline of Porta Garibaldi. The structure is of masonry and the thick partition walls of pressed bricks of which it consists divide the space in four communicating areas, connected towards west by a series of aligned openings that offer a full visual lengthwise from one end to the other. On top of the one sided pitched wooden roof, a row of skylights delivers a significant amount of light towards the ‘blind’ side of the house.

Our task was to modernise and complete a two-storey hospital pavilion in Melzo. We were asked to design clinical laboratories and a morgue. The extremely diverse requirements of these two additions strongly influenced our definition of the interiors and the composition of the architectural masses.
