Gariselli Associati as Designers

 Make-up of a building of the 60s used as a business for the sale and exhibition of furniture and furnishings. Simple vertical and horizontal lines become the main theme of this restructuring, alternating in a game of verticality and linearity that brings the building back to life with a non-invasive restyling. The wide front wall with facing bricks remains almost unaltered from the intervention, on which large white sun bricks rise up, accentuating the verticality concealing the existing openings without eliminating the light. The upper part binds to the underlying one thanks to vertical elements in painted aluminum that follow the lines, and then develop horizontally in the gray base, highlighting the large showroom windows, joined together thanks to the use of horizontal bands that highlight the above.
