monovolume architecture + design office

monovolume architecture + design as Architects

monovolume has chosen the path of urban regeneration for its brand new studio. The studio was placed in an older building, that was already used for different purposes in the past, so it is an architectural reuse project.

Working with an object that was thought up, conceived by someone else, was the first challenge of the project. The second was facing a structural-distribution context (a single floor - between the basement and the ground floor - separating the existing spaces) that did not satisfy the needs of the new use; finally, natural light: the real Achilles heel of the current condition.

To find a solution to these issues, it was decided to demolish the concrete slab, replacing it with a grid of metal beams on different levels, to create a web to solve the space distribution from a structural point of view.

In this way, the traditional concept of a floor was rejected, replaced by levels connected by stairs and a bridge.

In this way the office areas, the entrance with the reception, the meeting rooms, a large common area and the secondary rooms find their proper place.

Two large skylights bring zenithal light to the highest level and to the intermediate level, thanks to a cut in the floor.

Three full-height windows on the main façade facilitate the passage of natural light, up to the meeting rooms on the lower level thanks to glass and transparent surfaces on the floors and walls.

Special attention has been given to energy saving: the office, in fact, is Klimahaus/Casaclima R certified.

The environmental well-being is guaranteed by the integration of all the technical installations, heating, air conditioning and electrical systems, controlled by a domotics, as well as the lighting.
