The new headquarters of Marine Interiors, a worldwide leader in the design and building of turnkey furniture for cruise ships and yachts, recently also active in other sectors, is located in a former industrial complex in Ronchi dei Legionari, in the province of Gorizia. The renovation and reconversion project by the firm Architect Mine, headed in particular by the architects Francesca Sinicato and Daniele Sperotto, also saw the participation of Quadrifoglio Group, which has been creating furnishing solutions for work environments and more for thirty years now.
The client’s initial request was to bring the offices and showroom closer together, to encourage a continuous exchange of ideas, vesting the new facilities with a dual use, as operative headquarters and for the reception of customers, while also creating new co-working spaces for staff. All this with a concept inspired by naval materials, like wood, steel and glass, with the aim of creating an elegant style, representative of the parent company, while also brimming with allure and personality, just like the company and its people. The complex includes different spaces dedicated to moments of staff sharing: halls for meetings and training courses, as well as a refreshment area with an interior garden, guaranteeing natural lighting and ventilation for work environments. In addition to the patio, located in the courtyard of the building, the hall dedicated to the materials library was built from scratch, mostly featuring glass façades.
In this setting, Quadrifoglio Group provided furnishings for a surface area of 1,750 m2 on the ground and first floors, guaranteeing a complete service, from design to installation, with bespoke items and the utmost flexibility in the selection of finishes. In particular, models selected for the project include the desk Idea+01 for all operative stations and for some offices, the X4 and X5 desks for executive offices and reception halls, and custom-sized Creo tables, matched with C-Stool stools for moments of sharing in open spaces. Various types of wardrobes and lockers in the warm Canaletto Walnut finishing have also been supplied, along with wall units and dividing walls with aluminium profiles, separating some offices from common areas.
