Renovation and interior design for a Chartered Accountants Firm in Padua. The interiors featured a big central area immersed in the dark, despite facing south and north. We decided to make the shadows work for us by laying a system of paths connecting the private offices and the conference rooms, creating a contrast between the sombre passageways and the much brighter offices. Taking our cue from the shot fabrics seen in Tiepolo’s frescos in The Chinese Room of The Foresteria of Villa Valmarana ai Nani, we chose two colours, two complementary shades: a blue-grey and a brick-red shade. We applied them to the walls, floors and ceilings to create the perception of a shot effect, of dynamic and relaxing tones.We entrusted the reception area to the art of Federica Agnoletto – Freak of Nature, offering a cheerful welcome to the clients, often coming to the accounting firm burdened by all their financial worries. The wardrobe is a Renza Mara Calabrese design. We gave particular importance to natural and artificial light in the office. We added large planters along the window walls, where we placed plants among some NASA deemed most effective in absorbing polluting agents.
