Unicredit Bulbank di Sofia


A project of SGS Architetti Associati and Studio Scagliotti

The prestigious Bulgarian magazine “Ideal Home” has named Unicredit Bulbank in Sofia the “Innovative Business Space in the House 2015”. The SGS Architetti Associati and Studio Scagliotti project was completed a few months ago. This award from “Ideal Home” magazine is all the more significant considering the avant-garde nature of the project that was designed around the bank’s original and innovative client services. The project involved the internal and external renovation of Unicredit’s building. The space was transformed into an international center for assisting clients who are conducting business in Bulgaria. Located in Sofia’s historic center, the first-of-its-kind Unicredit Bulbank International Center came into being through a collaboration with high-level Italian brands in the fields of lighting and furnishings. These renowned companies include Hi-Lite, which installed Viabizzuno lamps; Home Controls for home automation systems; MDF, furniture designer and manufacturer; and Work & Work, custom furniture maker. The entrepreneurial project aims to globalize Italian companies by providing a prestigious location for conducting business in Sofia. A temporary office with the refined feel of your own branch. The restoration of the 1980s building’s exterior centered on the use of i-light panels. The company Italcementi creates this state-of-the-art cement that lets light enter. The center is spread over two floors. Careful attention was paid to the lighting design which adds a distinctive touch to every work environment, improving the overall atmosphere. There are multipurpose venues that can be used in various ways, from meeting rooms to event spaces. The reception area is located on the ground floor. On the first floor, meeting rooms are available by reservation with moveable walls for customizing the space. An artistic light design embellishes the entire ceiling. The International Center offers far more than merely meeting spaces. UniCredit organizes Business-to-Business networking opportunities; industry-related events; and co-marketing initiatives that bring together businesses with UniCredit experts in consulting, legal and fiscal support for business development, and establishing relationships with local authorities. Luca Amendola and Gianluca Geroli, the founding partners of SGS Architetti Associati, are pleased and proud to have received this award from such a well-respected Bulgarian magazine that is always on the lookout for the latest trends. SGS Architetti Associati’s founders believe the award recognizes not only their specific design work but also the overall quality of Italian craftsmanship!
