The not-remote possibility to re-use this old and historic “formula one” circuit pushed the client for a design competition aimed at rehabilitating the building facing the paddock area. This project seemed to meet the client’s aspirations and was the winner.
All buildings facing the racing circuit and hosting the teams’ boxes, the journalists’ room and the new Ferrari museum are refurbished and this includes also raised floors overall. All structures are made of steel to provide a lightweight structure in respect of earthquake regulations. Moreover the new shape also takes into account the various connections to the existing structure with regard to the new geometry of the roof.
