3ndy Studio Headquarter - 3ndy Studio focused on architecture and design, opened the NEW HEADQUARTERS in Vigonovo on September 2010 and is one of the most interesting example of energy conversion and architectural renovation of an existing industrial archaeological heritage. Before the renovation it was a shoes factory, located in Riviera del Brenta, a strategic commercial area for the shoes business, sited between Padua and Venice. The last 10 years of disuse and neglect contributed to a situation of deep degradation: the site looked like an open landfill site, where scraps of leather emanating odor and hazardous flammable sewage were abandoned. The renovation of the project improved the quality of local residents’ life and preserved an important part of the city memory. At last but not least, the conversion resulted in a significant
energy saving throughout the build process and the building life (existing recovery of raw materials, better use of existing infrastructure, better use of transport and logistics, reduce waste). The new office received the prestigious Prize "Class A" Casa Clima, the parameter for achieving energy savings with the average annual consumption of only 26 kWh/mq compared with 180 normally consumed by a traditional building. When completed, the building has been subjected to the "blower door test" to check for leaks with air leaks, the result of approximately 0.6 n50 / h compares the building to a "passive house" . This is a modern technological building that has zero environmental impact and is energically autonomous thanks to the 376 photovoltaic roof panels, the air conditioning equipment and the controlled mechanical
ventilation, and during its use does not produce CO2 or hydrocarbon combustion pollution. The elimination of over 250 square meters of concrete paving was a further strength of our renovation work, with the consequent restoration of external permeable surface. The furniture provides added value and comfort indoor that is essential for the whole green architecture. Through the water collection in an underground tank, rainwater is filtered and reused for irrigation. The dialogue between pre-existing staff and design is underlined inside the building where we tried to conserve as much as possible, restoring common objects otherwise destined for landfill: the bigger part of the furniture was made through the recovery of waste and material packaging, which were used during the construction phases. 3ndy Studio had been mentioned to the Prize "Sustainable Living" (Sustainable Living) for the 3ndy Studio Headquarters building in Vigonovo, in occasion of the Award Ecofriendly and innovation, called "Green Life, from countries raising the economy of the future." This award is set for enterprises that use innovation in environmental field. 3ndyStudio Headquarters is the first building in the region of Veneto, which is subject of industrial restoration classified at the first level of KlimaHouse (A). 3ndy Studio - Marco Mazzetto (1973) and Alessandro Lazzari (1972) established the 3ndy Studio in the province of Venice right after achieving their master’s degree at the University of Architecture in Venice IUAV. Since the very early activities the Studio is interested in planning, researching and implementing architectural projects involving diverse levels of design: objects, buildings, urban planning. In addition, the Studio competes in national and international planning contests, achieving various mentions and awards. 3ndy is currently a vital center where many skills and personalities meet. In 2007 started the collaboration with Massimiliano Martignon (1972) a fellow architect also trained in IUAV. Today 3ndy Studio is a consolidate reality, which proudly accounts successful works in Italy, and since 2011 it has developed a strategy of international outreach, which has led to contracts in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, cutting across the residential and Business&Retail sectors.
