Transforming a derelict space into the HQ of a vibrant tech firm
In the wake of several corporate acquisitions, FTSE AIM Italia Index-listed software vendor Neosperience was looking to create a central meeting place for its 160-strong European workforce – within a new 1,400 sqm flagship headquarters in Milan, Italy.
Incorporating a site which had been left derelict for 10 years previously, the new office was designed to reflect the innovative SME’s world-leading tech capabilities and was formed by connecting two adjoining buildings together. The ensuing scale of works meant the five-month project was divided into two phases – the first of which concentrated on upgrades to the street-side structure.
Agilité Solutions was tasked with the strip-out of the existing 1980s office configuration – which included several small spaces and a top floor for the management team – and the complete reconfiguration to reflect the needs and personality of its forward-thinking tenant.
Alongside creating large, open plan workspaces – and breakout meeting rooms – Agilité managed all strip out, construction, fit-out, and finishing works. This included structural updates, lighting, mechanical and plumbing installations, as well as roofing repairs and upgrades to the façade.
With the client looking to move in by the start of 2021, Agilité Solutions was appointed not only for its solid proposal, but for its ability to begin the strip-out phase promptly.
Working alongside Studiokeyø, architects, the two teams have collaborated on interior décor and, where elements of the third-party design needed to be amended, Agilité country manager Maria Luisa Daglia and construction manager Anna Filippi utilised their architectural background to assist with problem-solving around mechanical design and installation.
Redrawing and rethinking the system with a view to supporting the client, Agilité managed to avoid any impact to the timing and delivery of the programme while upholding Neosperience’s expectations.
Dario Melpignano, CEO of Neosperience, said: “The company aspires to be an important hub. Our office acts as a base for all the companies in the group and is able to attract the best talents on the national scene. The office in via Decemviri is now as welcoming, innovative, and unique as Neosperience.”
Agilité Solutions country manager (Italy) Maria Luisa Daglia added: “The project was extremely rewarding, and it was a pleasure to work with the client and the architects of Studiokeyø – it wasn’t without challenges, but the end result is fantastic to see. We are incredibly proud.”
Studiokeyø, architect, Stefano Cappello, concluded: “Designing workspaces is a way to think about efficient, comfortable and stimulating places, where talent can find the keys to make the world a better place. Thanks to the innovative spirit of Neosperience, and the great technical skills of Agilité Solutions, we have succeeded.”
