New concept of the restroom areas at Leonardo Da Vinci Airport Fiumicino – Rome
Studio Muzi & Associates has been awarded the international competition in restricted participation launched by ADR regarding ideas for a new concept of the restroom areas for Fiumicino airport.
Studio Muzi, with its design team composed of Mario Muzi, Marco Giuffrida, in collaboration with Giovanna Talocci, developed the project and became the artistic director during the realization .
The basic idea behind the concept, then realized, was to think of sensory space for the passenger, an emotional habitat, with environmental comfort and high technology at the same time .
The use of the best Italian design together with a careful consideration of the functional aspects incorporated in the architecture led to the creation of a restrooms area of high architectural quality and performance, unusual features for these spaces, especially in airports.
All finishing and materials have been chosen in a range of warm colors with a natural effect both to touch and to see.
The accessibility and use are totally guaranteed following the latest guidelines at international level. The space can be used by children too because it is perfectly “family friendly”, even more thanks to specially designed and comfortable areas.
The technological equipment have been specially studied and integrated in the furniture, such as groups of taps, soap and towels dispensers hidden in the shelves under the mirrors .
Great attention has been devoted to the study of the illuminating engineering and different lighting effects have been created using the most advanced LED technology. This provides both visual and functional comfort, either by creating spectacular and surprising effects as the linear cut of light on walls and ceilings reminding flight paths in the sky enhancing the passenger’s imaginary experience of travelling.
Studio Muzi & Associates entire process of planning and commitment, from the concept to the building, contributed to the realization of a “sense of place” that can reconcile and bring together the global dimension associated with the experience of flying with a more intimate sensation, associated to a comfortable home dimension.
