The existing building, treated with a dash lime plaster, produces a suggestive contrast through the deployment of new elements’ surfaces and textures, never monotonous. A collective artisanal design using hi-end technologies.

As at the entrance, a tiled grid on the floor and partially on the wall, enhances the elongated-shape character of the space. The massive pre-existing structure of the mezzanine becomes the main element to define the different mood of the two levels.

Completely covered in alveolar polycarbonate, it is conceived as a large light fixture which, by intensity dimming, can be perceived as indefinite and diaphanous. The connection staircase is characterized by a painted steel handrail that varies along its path.

The mezzanine floor, designed as a more intimate and welcoming space, combines traditional materials such as the wall surfaces in raw plaster and a wooden floor with more contemporary ones used for clothes exhibitors, made in aluminium Alucore panels, in continuity with the ground floor.
