Alcatel Lucent Headquarter in Milan
Location: Segro Energy Park, Vimercate, Milan, Lombardy, Italy
Segro Energy Park is located in the Polo Tecnologico della Brianza (Science Hub of Brianza) approximately 20 km from downtown Milan.
With the aim of bringing together offices and laboratories in a new headquarter, Alcatel Lucent chose DEGW Italia to follow each step of the process ( occupational cost analysis, workplace change management,location and workplace strategy, space planning and interior design, sustainability) as to create a vibrant, energetic, professional center.
After defining the site, DEGW has worked closely to the client, to perfectly match his needs, and deliver a tailored, integrated solution: through strategic thinking, company managers have been interviewed, and advices have been given about innovative use of workspace.
“Alcatel Lucent needed a new headquarter: comfortable, technological and sustainable” says Alessandro Adamo DEGW Italia CEO “ So we have supported our client during all the process, from occupier strategy to interior design, including 7000 sq meters laboratories sustainability planning, where energy efficiency and architectural integration of plants criteria have been successfully applied. “The result is a colourful, functional, flexible, bright workspace able to foster both collaboration and privacy issues, well aligned with business objectives and brand vision.”
The new headquarter hosts 1700 people on 3.000 square meters area in Segro Energy Park, near to the former headquarters. The campus is composed of a extensive hall acting as a central hub connecting 5 multi-storey volumes with different functions (offices, labs and multimedia center).
The 2300 sqm hall is a double height space (4-7 meters) : fluid, open and articulated in special areas (reception and waiting area, informal and formal meeting, client area, a cafeteria).
Adjacent to the hall, it is located the Multimedia Communication Center, a 1.200 mq space hosting 150 seats auditorium with a foyer, a small 60 places amphitheater, and the university including meeting and training rooms.
Into multilevel buildings are located offices (16.000 sqm ) and laboratories (6800 sqm).
Office floor plan type optimizes building dimensions (22×80 meters) delivering open spaces, that stimulate interaction, along with small private offices, when concentration is needed.
The central hub is conceived as a sharing workstation and hosts touchdown areas, concentration rooms, copy areas and groups archives.
DEGW interior design featured a choice of natural materials such as wood, and neutral colours, white and grey, jazzed up by fluo color furniture.
The laboratories show technological language by using high-tech materials: metal, glass, plants.
