Andrea Oliva. Offices in an industrial unit. Officine Reggiane. Reggio Emilia. Italy
Project published in a+t 44 Workforce A Better Place to Work 2
February 03, 2016
The intervention by Andrea Oliva in this early 20th century industrial unit is based on preserving that found, restoring this with no alterations –as far as possible– to the effects of time and introducing new uses, such as offices, with volumes which colonize the space by stacking them up on one of the sides.
The 3D module strategy makes it possible to concentrate the free space and apply selective HVAC instead of trying to implement a general atmosphere for the whole unit.
As this is a centre for technological innovation, where different programmes and teams with different working hours co-exist, the compartmentalization of the space facilitates more efficient management of energy resources. Furthermore, the roofed open space can be used to hold a separate programme of events.
