The project that concerns the redevelopment of “Cotonificio Fossati” for the construction of the new headquarters of the “Chamber of commerce industry Craftmanship Agriculture” of Monza and Brianza

has the aim to create a new space of representation and communication of his activities.The functional program distribution around the connection the connection hub between the main building of the beginning of the new century and the new realization is the device that allows the use of the spaces separating the access flows and ensuring the simultaneity of activities, even directed to different users.The new volume was imagined as a plugin: the structure fits into the existing one changing the spatial and functional relationships and providing a new flexible system of distribution and access, capable of responding to different usage scenarios.Starting from the competition of 2010 and the winning project by Stefano Boeri Architetti, Sering and Assostudio, the proposal curated by Dontstop Architettura identifies wood as a new building outer covering material, in continuity with the industrial tradition of the Brianza area and in juxtaposition to the Portaluppi’s architectural design compositional of the main building.The new volume of the Conference room for its functional characteristics was designed as a single and homogeneous volume and overlook the parking space, that become a new public space for access to buildings. The conference’s volume is covered at the first and second floor with wood panelling that organizes the new spaces and the vertical connections and divides the Congress functions from the existing administrative and directional spaces.
