INTERIOR DESIGN OF KPMG HEADQUARTER

The project concerns the organisation of the inner spaces and the furnishing of the new Treviso offices of KPMG (c. 400sqm). The key part to the project is the reception/conference room/library nucleus, where the most public and representative activities of the company take place. The reception/secretarial area is conceived as a single open space, in which a large curving partition separates the operative areas of the two secretaries from the entrance and the waiting area. This wall, a great egg of sorts, perfectly smooth on the outside, conceals, on its inside, the work area. Two slits allow the secretaries to check who enters and for these to glimpse the operative area. A blue wall (the colour of the company logo) acts as a background to the entrance area and at the same time acts as “facade” to the main rooms (library, conference room, partners’ offices). Blue returns in all the main environments, whilea second primary colour, red, signals the large conference room and the garden terrace. The colour is used to “deconstruct” the geometry of the spaces, introducing large coloured backgrounds with an explicit reference to minimalism. The few colours used in all the offices (blue, red, grey) are employed in contrasting qualities (saturated to a greater or lesser degree) and on a variety of different surfaces (rough or smooth), on walls, and made to order furniture.
