BARCLAYS, CAPITAL ITALY
The Milan headquarters of Barclays Capital is located on the ground floor and on the first floor af a historical building in Via Moscova. The office is occupied by about 50 members of staff however, because of the nature of this business, it is constantly used by visiting bankers from London that are engaged in major investment projects. The main focus of Studio & Partners work has been to reorganize the distribution of the various departments respecting their different work styles and needs for internal security.
Particular attention was given to the representative areas - entrance lobby reception, meeting rooms and dealer spaces. A natural stone wall with the Blue Barclays eagle logo and the cherry wood reception counter reflect the Bank's traditions but modern business approach. The meeting rooms have translucent glass fronts but internally are paneled in wood or in the case of the video conference room acoustic fabric covered panels.
