A Passion for Beauty

Bros Manifatture is a leader in the jewelry and watch sector based in Grottazzolina (Fermo) in the Marche Region of Italy. It offers the market four brands, each with its own clearly defined identity. These four complementary spirits merge in a passion for beauty as personality and style, and these same values underlie the architectural concept of the new Bros corporate headquarters, designed by Stefano Sagripanti.

The Headquarters and Its Distinctive Features

The building has a regular floor plan, and all its main architectural features have curved lines, especially the overhanging roof and the internal courtyard.

The envelope encompassing the working areas and connecting spaces features large glazed areas, providing a continual sequence of indoor-outdoor views thanks to an extremely fluid architectural approach. The extent of the glazed areas has reduced the need for artificial lighting, reinforcing the sustainability found throughout the building. This approach is also reflected in the use of insulated external walls, and low-E glazing, in addition to the 220 kW solar PV system installed on the roof, which has allowed the company to eliminate the use of fossil fuels.

 

The prioritization of beauty, comfort, and sustainability was also behind the choice of Laminam surfaces for the floors and walls. Indeed, the IN-SIDE collection, in Pietra Piasentina Grigio shade, was used for the flooring, and for the bathroom countertops, flooring and walls.

Pietra Piasentina Grigio is one of the five very distinctive shades of the IN-SIDE collection, which draws on cutting-edge technological expertise to break with ceramic surface conventions, and achieve textural continuity throughout the surface, body, and edges of the slabs. Pietra Piasentina Grigio enhances the aesthetic appeal of the spaces it furnishes, lending them great individuality, solidity and prestige. This exceptionally versatile material is ideal not only for floors and walls, but also as the finish of furnishing features: kitchen countertops, the doors and drawers of built-ins, bathroom vanity/countertops, doors, and stairs. In the Bros Manifatture headquarters, Pietra Piasentina Grigio in Flamed finish already puts in an appearance along the corridor of the outdoor patio, setting up a stylistic dialog with the slender white columns and the glazing modules. Indoors, it is paired with white walls, which match the veins in the stone, and clear glass windows to create light-filled, elegant interiors with high occupant comfort levels.

IN-SIDE

Throughout the building, furniture and features with pure forms – some with right-angled, some with rounded shapes – emphasize the visual and tactile characteristics imparted by Pietra Piasentina Grigio, with its impressively realistic portrayal of the sedimentary rock which serves as its inspiration.

The product’s aesthetic qualities go hand-in-hand with technical and functional properties which ensure true versatility of use – like all Laminam large slabs, the IN-SIDE collection is immune to the passage of time. Its stain resistance, flexural strength, and resistance to chemicals and thermal shock, as well as to the proliferation of fungi and bacteria, all combine to make these surfaces suitable for high-traffic locations such as corporate buildings. The choice of a Laminam surface was the perfect option for creating an interior attuned to the brand’s identity and values, and for clearly expressing every detail of its DNA, in a statement addressed not only to employees and associates, but also to the entire local area.
