Kilometro Rosso is a Science and Technology Park located just outside the northern Italian town of Bergamo which hosts a range of companies, research centres, laboratories, high-tech production facilities and providers of innovative services.
The architectural project was developed by Jean Nouvel while the interiors were created by Studio BLAST.
Studio BLAST chose to use Salvatori’s Crema d’Orcia for all the public areas of the “Professional Centre”, a space given over to reception as well as a meeting place for all the research activity that takes place across the campus.
The same stone in much larger slabs was used for the tread of the huge main staircase, while Chiselled Lava was employed for the riser.
