W84 is a minimalist space located in Arzignano, Italy, designed by AMAA. The design is an excellent example of the potential of industrial shed structures, spread throughout the North of Italy. This is also thanks to the good relationship between the client and the architects, who have been given great freedom to continue their personal research.
Inside a shed with a vaulted roof, the studio places a steel structure on which the concrete and corrugated sheet metal floors rest. The materials are in the raw state: metal is left to oxidise without painting and cement is not finished, as are the parts of the existing building that have been demolished. Plants, pipes, cables and structures are left exposed, in line with the language of the rustic and bare intervention, of a post-industrial elegance.
