Berluti – Manufacture

Designed by the Barthélémy Griño architecture firm, the building itself is a metaphor for the House…

 

Inaugurated in 2015, Berluti’s shoes and leather goods workshop in Ferrare, in Northern Italy was designed to accommodate the company’s growth. The facility meets the highest environmental standards and has a unique architecture: the overall dimensions are proportional to those of a shoebox, a perfect rectangle given movement by wood and glass sequences. The natural red cedarwood used for the exterior will take on a deep patina with age, just like a fine leather, while the beech employed for the ceilings evokes the wood of shoe lasts. Large bay windows and raw concrete strike the same delicate balance between solidity and lightness that characterizes Berluti shoes, while the criss-crossed ceiling beams in the central atrium simulate shoelaces.
