The plan was to create not only a modern and convenient visa center but also a multifunctional public space.
The main slogan is “Italy starts here” and “here” stands for a small Italian cafe and an exhibition zone in the foyer where in a waiting area one can also look through the magazines about art, design and travelling.
The reception desk is not only the “island” of information but the centre of the whole interior which is designed in monochromatic colors.
The textures of light colored concrete which was used to finish the floor, walls and the ceiling are stylistically combined with the structural elements of furniture and other equipment made of white metal profile, grid and frosted glass.
The information stands and cash desks were made using painted thin steel sheet. The individual zones are separated by steel-framed semi-transparent partition walls and the whole space is penitrated with a lighting system consisted of thin LED tubes under the ceiling that gives us the impression of light-filled and spacious room.
