AOUMM – Argot ou La Maison Mobile
The project for indoor common spaces of building 102 at EU Joint Research Center campus in Ispra aimed to create environments able to promote the sharing of competencies among staff and researchers at JRC, following the architectural concept dividing the building into two color areas: earth and water. The office identified the specific requirements for common spaces on each floor, developing a signaling system and several layouts serving different functions: Lounge, Forum, Meeting spot, Space for silence, Coffee break, Working lunch, Time off, Belvedere. Spaces for work, meeting and free time are well-defined in customized environments, building a coherent overall project.
At EU Joint Research Center campus in Ispra, AOUMM is developing a largescale project of about 20.000 sqm, involving different parts of the territorial research hub, related to local features as well as supra-territorial values. After taking care of the design of building 101’s common spaces in 2019, the office is now busy with a multiphase project on building 102 and the strengthening of spatial relationships in the campus through green strategies. The activity involves the interior design, masterplanning, landscape design, and the project for a 4.800 sqm parking lot.
