Arpa arredamenti

For the restyling of the Arpa Arredamenti headquarters, we proposed to the customer a composite material cladding of a very particular colour called “sunset”, which was then further enhanced by the compositional choices. Nicolli srl The special iridescent paint used gives a continuously mutating perception of the colours of the panels depending on the incidence of the sunlight. This means that the different sections of the building will take on different colour hues depending on the time of the day. To make the most of this feature, the façade has been made more dynamic through an update of the old geometries, changing the inclination of some panels, so that the light will always hit at different angles. Nicolli... More

STIHL USA Headquarters

Few architectural projects can boast of a floating helix of chainsaws. But for STIHL Inc., the design of a new $32 million corporate headquarters was heavily inspired by their signature product.

Contemporary Women’s Health

Contemporary Women’s Health approached BMA to design a new medical office building that would reflect their brand as a group of all-women physicians practicing the latest trends in modern obstetrics and gynecology. In collaboration with the physicians and staff, we developed a design that projects a very cleanly detailed modern and minimal exterior of glass, metal, and wood. The building entry is centrally located to act as the front door to both the clinical side of the practice as well as the spa, while still allowing each side its own waiting area and identity after entering. The spa anchors the west end of the building and is primarily identified with extensive exterior / interior use of tongue and groove cypress siding and glass. Spa r... More
