HEADQUARTER TESSITURE DI NOSATE E SAN GIORGIO, Santo Stefano Ticino
Tessiture di Nosate e San Giorgio’s new headquarter, Santo Stefano Ticino (Mi).
2007 – 2010
Woof and Warp
For the extension of a leader textile factory in Milan outskirts we focused on the character of the main, south facing, elevation.
A delicate play of orthogonal geometries: woof (the bearing vertical structure) and warp (the horizontal glass and brickwork cladding) generate effects of transparencies and lightness that also shade the direct sun rays.
Openness and closeness alternate creating opposite night and day atmospheres that help the building in gaining depth and consistency.
Technically led austerity and glamorous appearance are joined in the building’s interiors, while the optimal operators comfort is granted by a cutting edge technical equipment coupled to an efficient exploitation of natural cross ventilation and humidity control.
