NEW OFFICES AT RIMINI TRADE FAIR
The office area is near the south Hall, on the two wings between the entrance and the exhibition pavilions. This area also overlook the courtyard for loading and unloading and the parking. The client’s request was to build the offices above the existing pavilions. In this way the new volumes are directly accesssible from the existing offices.
The need to build offices on top of an existing roof involved structural and architectural measures. From a structural point of view, a light steel structure was chosen so as not to weigh excessively on the existing building. Architecturally, we decided to use a light cladding instead of the heavy concrete one of the existing facades.
The facades are slightly set back from the existing ones in order to emphasize the extension. At the same time they show the module and the structural scan of the existing ones in order to fit in harmoniously. The covering in warm beige tones also gives the building the chromatic nuance that distinguishes the sorrounding buildings.
The interiors open onto a central distribution corridor. Glass partitions divide the offices from the corridor and guarantee a great visual permeability. The maneuverable curtains between the glasses allow the users greater privacy when needed.
The double exposure to north and south guarantees a great internal brightness, ideal for an office. The wooden floor finally gives alegance and warmth to the enironment.
Each of the buildings hosts various spaces: single or double offices, a meeting room and a large office that can accommodate up to 8 workstations.
The New Offices at Rimini Trade Fair guarantee the Fair the extension needed thank to a modern and functional space.
