Spada Partners Office
Milano 2017

The Spada Partners project stems from the need for renewal of the image and visibility of the studio, operating in the field of financial and tax advisory services.

Thanks to a change of address and corporate structure, the company is moving towards greater internationalization, while conserving its roots and its history.

The new facility is on the second floor of a building designed by the architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni at the start of the 1960s, which stands out in the context of the frontage on Corso Italia: the cladding in brick red ceramic tile defines its forms, and the large glass facades offer views of the two nearby churches, Sant’Eufemia and San Paolo Converso.

The concept of the project moves in two clear directions: respect for the colors and atmosphere of the building, and an accent on light, exploiting the multiple exposures.

The facade has therefore been projected towards the interior, developing in perfect continuity with the existing front and constructing a ring-shaped access layout, faced by the meeting rooms, the offices of the partners and the staff, and the spaces for waiting and relaxation.

The transparency is never interrupted and triggers dialogue between the large internal garden and the green courtyard enclosed inside the main building.

The reception area immediately conveys a sense of this characteristic: the vestibule, enclosed by a mahogany wall and a large black iron portal, opens to the view of the vegetation and the impressive magnolia tree of the inner garden, amplified by lateral mirrors.

The materials are mahogany, while runs along the entire length of the divider partitions in iron and glass, brown rubber for the floor, and the black iron of the details in the coverings of the pillars.
