The overall project included the demolition and reconstruction according to new seismic standards of Building 12 of the Italian headquarters of ESA, and its complete restructuring to enable new ways of working.
The intention was to achieve an evolution not only in the building’s architecture but also in space planning, the interior design and work styles. The new design concept was strongly influenced by the institution’s commitment to achieving Leed certification, and we implemented the project with sustainable furniture and materials.
While the previous design relied on individual spaces and workplaces, our client desired to create an experimental space, which would accommodate all the cutting-edge innovations in the working environment.This successful pilot-project inspired future development at Esa-Esrin. Building 14 is undergoing a complete renovation in 2021.
