Internal renovation of three of the four existing floors of an independent building for a total surface of about 1400 sq.m. to be used as the headquarters of an advertising agency, including creative, account and administration offices, reception area, meeting rooms and open lounges. New internal partitions were obtained by using glass sheets with printed, backlit adhesive films. The bespoke furniture for the open lounges and meeting rooms is made of glass and ebony-coloured veneered multilayer wood.
The furniture in the offices is made of steel and white-lacquered multilayer wood.
The renovation involves nearly the whole of the lower premises of a building designed by two well-known architects, Mr. Asnago and Mr. Vender, in the old city center of Milan in 1953. This building, known as “Condominio XXI Aprile”, is an outstanding example of modern architecture with internal well-constructed scenographic spaces, characterized by the multiform use of materials in response to a particular style of the period; however, many of the original features of its interiors, heavily modified over the decades following its construction, had been lost.
