Zigzag Arquitectura + Rodrigo Delso
Studio Zigzag and Rodrigo Delso have together transformed a former industrial shed into innovative offices for an audiovisual production company.
The intervention of the team formed by Bernardo Angelini, David Casino, and Rodrigo Delso strays from the deep-seated urban dynamic where novelty takes priority over saving what already exists. It aimed to give a second life to a space situated in the inner courtyard of an 1859 building: a basic laundry facility which had ended up as the abandoned ruin of a car repair.
With a limited budget, sustainable materials, and few but efficiently targeted actions (such as new openings in slabs and the ramp’s conversion into a point of contact with the street), the project achieved a creative reinterpretation of historical heritage, and a decadent building became an oasis of nature amid the frenzy of the city.
