For the restyling of the Arpa Arredamenti headquarters, we proposed to the customer a composite material cladding of a very particular colour called “sunset”, which was then further enhanced by the compositional choices.
The special iridescent paint used gives a continuously mutating perception of the colours of the panels depending on the incidence of the sunlight. This means that the different sections of the building will take on different colour hues depending on the time of the day.
To make the most of this feature, the façade has been made more dynamic through an update of the old geometries, changing the inclination of some panels, so that the light will always hit at different angles.
This gives an absolutely original result with strong impact, fully meeting the desire of the customer of a totally new corporate image.
As a mean of controlling the light and ensuring safety in the basement spaces, we have installed fixed breakers made of painted aluminium sunlouvers.
