comvert-logo-2

We are finally able to post an ‘almost’ complete set of pictures and drawings concerning a project that has kept us busy for more than one year: The new home of Comvert s.r.l, the italian clothing company that produces and distributes Bastard. Few years ago Comvert asked studiometrico to look for a location for its new headquarter in Milan; the place should have been large enough to host offices for 15-20 people, services, a big storage for their products and an indoor skatebowl for employees, team riders and friends. In spring 2005 we eventually found a Cinema theater from the 50′s that really suited Comvert needs and few months ago – after the conclusion of the refurbishment works – the company has moved into its new home: Casacomvert!

Gardens between apple trees – 2

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

In April 2005 we published a post about a series of gardens that studiometrico has designed in the North East of Italy for a private client. The project is dealing with the organisation of the outdoor spaces surrounding a rural house from the 15th century that has been renovated by vudafieri-partners, a Milan based architectural firm with a long time collaboration with studiometrico. The gardens are going to be completed in Spring 2008 and will feature a number of art installations that are part of the private collection of the owner. Since we have been as busy as silent with this project, we post here some recent pictures of the site works.

Refurbishing a cinema theater in milan – 3

Monday, June 18th, 2007

We publish here some new pictures showing progress of the Cinema Istria building site. A new structure of terraced platforms cladded with larch wood panels will soon host the headquarter office spaces. The old floor of the mezzanine has been sanded, old paint has been removed and the pine planks have been taken to life again. Electrical, heating and cooling installations are almost completed and soon furnitures and finishings will complete the works. We look forward to see (and show) the end of it!

Sunday, June 10th, 2007

Since last February the works on this small house with a beautiful panorama and some hidden caves have been (slowly) developing through the interior finishing and installation phase. Studiometrico is eventualy about to leave the house in the hands of its new inhabitants. Here are some among the last ‘un-furnished’ and ‘un-inhabited’ pictures we have been shooting this month.

Refurbishing a cinema theater in milan – 2

Monday, April 30th, 2007

After a couple of months of site works we publish here few pictures of the most ambitious of our current projects: converting a 1.300 sqm Cinema Theater into an unconventional office space for a young Milan-based clothing company. Architecture works and installations should be concluded within a month and the new headquarter should be available for its inhabitants by the summer. We’ll be able to tell and show more about this project as the building site progress.
