Via Manzoni, Milan &
Former Manifattura Tabacchi, Florence
Gruppo Florence, a significant Italian manufacturing reality that produces clothing items for the major international luxury brands through its companies, has turned to 967arch for the project of its Milan offices in Via Manzoni and Florence within the former Manifattura Tabacchi.
Both projects have been developed with the belief that architecture should return the identity and vocation of the Group, which is an integrated and flexible production platform. Open environments, without permanent design, in which to bring together different types of visitors, functions, and events and capable of representing the various souls of the large manufacturing group.

Restoration of the Alfa Romeo Office Building
Arese (progect Arch. Ignazio Gardella, 1967-74)
967arch will be in charge of the complete restoration of the building designed by Ignazio Gardella in the late 1960s for the Alfa Romeo Technical Center in Arese.
The building, considered one of the most significant in the history of 20th-century Italian architecture, consists of six above-ground floors, is about 200 meters long, and is characterized by the protruding final floor compared to the floors below.
The project will initially focus on defining the conservation work of the external facades and light interventions on the internal parts, which are necessary for the functional recovery and enhancement of the building, for which further studies will be conducted in subsequent stages.

Cesare Roversi, Moglia
Cesare Roversi arredamenti, a company specialized in interior design and furnishings for homes, hotels and offices, commissioned 967arch to set up the exhibition ‘The Making of a Factory‘, which tells a unique tutorship project. The exhibition will open on September 5th at the company’s headquarters in Moglia (MN).
The company wanted to imagine a new dimension for its headquarters in collaboration with the architecture school YACAdemy through its ‘Talent Program‘.
Six selected groups of students were followed by designers from contemporary architecture firms: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, David Chipperfield Architects, Herzog & DeMeuron, MCA – Mario Cucinella Architects, SANAA, AMDL Circle. The six interventions, the result of the work of young designers, unwind adjacent to Cesare Roversi’s plants to renew and enhance the company’s historical sites.

Museo dei Bozzetti
Overlooking the main square of Pietrasanta, the complex currently undergoing redevelopment, built starting from the 14th century by Augustinian friars, consists of a large cloister and a set of annexed buildings.
The new cultural hub – a project promoted by the local municipality – will have the task of showcasing the relationship and interactions with the local productive culture linked to marble processing.
It will include spaces for temporary exhibitions, offices, deposits, a municipal library, as well as the Bozzetti Museum, which since 1984, has documented the activity of sculptors active in the area.

967arch has been tasked with planning the spaces and interior design of Autotorino’s new headquarters in Cosio Valtellino, in the province of Sondrio. The project is being carried out in collaboration with Martinalli studio, responsible for the expansion of the current office, and with Pezzini, supporting the interior design as general contractor.
The new headquarters will be spread over three floors and will be a dynamic and functional place. The ground floor will house meeting rooms and the traditional exhibition area of a car dealership, while the first and second floors will be dedicated to meeting rooms and operational offices, designed to encourage interaction among employees.
967arch’s project was inspired by materials and typical tones of the automotive industry, choosing glossy finishes and glass, but has also included elements that recall the colors and atmosphere of the Valtellina landscape, creating a link between the work environment and the surrounding nature.

Ignorant Party 2023
The 967arch party
As tradition holds, on the last Thursday of June, 967arch organizes the Ignorant Party, a summer celebration where all members of the studio become cooks and waiters to welcome guests in the courtyard of the headquarters.
Among the attendees are colleagues, clients, suppliers, collaborators, and members of the press. The Ignorant Party owes its name to the informal and spontaneous spirit in which it was born, a night to meet people known or met during the year of work in a relaxed atmosphere.
The 2023 edition of the Ignorant Party was particularly lively and crowded, with over 400 participants who raised funds to support the initiatives of Pane Quotidiano. We thank everyone who participated and look forward to seeing them again at the 2024 edition!

Exhibition "L'ALPHAbeto del Futuro"
Courmayeur Design Week-end 2023
During the weekend of February 9-12, the Design Week-end event took place in Courmayeur, which brought the town to life with installations, exhibits, meetings, and special projects.
967arch was invited to set up the exhibition “L’ALPHAbeto del futuro” at the Congress Center of Courmayeur. The future of the Alpha generation is explored through the parallelism between the evolution of school spaces and work spaces over the past fifty years.
The aim is to transfer the know-how gained in the office sector – an area that has evolved to meet contemporary needs – to the school environment. This area, in contrast, seems to lack the same virtuous drive and remains anchored to rigid and now outdated models.
