The division in La Spezia is one of the four Sanlorenzo shipyards – one of the world’s leading manufacturers of yachts and superyachts – and is focused on the construction and outfitting of superyachts.
The intervention of Lissoni Architettura regarded all the production support buildings: the oldest, which dates back to the end of the 19th century, and others that were added over the years for logistic reasons. The project design sought to fully respect the identity of the buildings by restoring and redeveloping the historical elements whilst dismantling those interventions that over time had distorted the whole ensemble, and in this way offering a new coherency and overall visual harmony without however forgetting its industrial soul and the needs of the manufacturing processes.
The area of the intervention included five buildings and two warehouses which were cleaned up and brought back to their original simplicity, emphasizing the strong industrial nature of the architecture through a coherent choice of materials.
