Summary. Under Measure. A historic home, designed in 1941; a planned city, opened in 1898.


Almost 120 years later, Sumisura's new multifunctional space appears. A project made to measure for the place where it is located.

The concept is the union of times. A preserved historic house. In the background, a new, totally contemporary space. A gallery axle that joins two strokes. 

This location will host the company's showroom, with exceptional products from Rimadesio, Cinex and Dolomiti. In addition, an outdoor space under the century-old mango tree is ideal for an afternoon coffee or evening event.

The original portion of the house is kept in its entirety and receives part of the product showcase. The central core undergoes minor changes in order to facilitate the daily use of services: kitchen, service circulation, employee toilets and storage. This nucleus also has the important role of receiving customers and directing them: on the left, tradition and history; on the right, the new and modern pavilion.

This pavilion will be built in a metallic structure, in a practical and agile way. A large space, with high ceilings and infinite possibilities for furniture layout. The entire glass front is interrupted only by an imposing wooden pivot door. Through it, you reach the external area, composed of a wooden deck, water mirror with waterfall, which under the shade of the mango tree, creates a pleasant space.

On the pavilion's mezzanine, the workstations are concentrated, from which the Sumisura projects come from, which will permeate the city with the same architectural concepts applied here.
