Merieux Nutrisciences Headquarters

iscattolin as Architects

The Merieux Nutrisciences is a multinational company which is dealing with chemical analyses and microbiological for the food&nutrition, ambiental, pharma, cosmetic, consumer goods, packaging and agrochemicals areas. The Resana’s center is in the Treviso’ s province, and it got structured as a reference pole of the all north of Italy.

The architectural project presented is the result of ten-year collaboration with the client, and it aims at the solution of a contest characterized by functional complexity, derived by the scope of operations of the company and consequent to the need of a progressive development of the business activity started, in a not exactly industrial contest. The buildings have the use of analysis laboratories or executive spaces, canteen and fun spaces for the employees.

The project development finds inspiration in the need to place the different work sectors in the area putting first the dimensional relationship between the volums, the operation of the connecting and movement of workers routes, besides the landscape of the countryside. We think the blocks built independently or through added level and joined by functional paths.

The buildings are characterized by simple shapes immediately recognizable, lightened in their mass by the balance control of the interspacing of the windows, of the design of the logge , terraces, internal courts, where the natural green was placed. This choice provides a romantic dimension to the complex, where the nature override the built, making it more human and less artificial, mitigating the impact to the around and making occasion of “good living” for its inhabitants.

We take care to the plant design because of their important role, like that it was employed large machinery for the heating, the recovery, the filtration and the air wave in the atmosphere, besides the equipment for the work of analisys. The basic principle in this area was the search for the total integration of the artefacts inside the architecture, so that presenting them not as additional elements, but as integral elements, watching the industrial building metaphorically as a pulsanting engine of the activity carried out the building.

The costructive way is the dry method, that is prefabricated structures in concrete or steel and with wood panelings and metal insulated panels. The external surfaces are characterized by the titanium zinc sheet, worked with the double crimping. The choice of this material is to obtain a general aesthetic balance and a contextual effect of lightening of the volums. The changing soul of the metal is going to adapt very well to the different situation of light and climate, it gives to the industrial center the good inclusion with the natural green designed inside the Veneto countryside.
