Ferrari Headquarters

Hunter Douglas Architectural as ceiling supplier

Architect Marco Visconti brought futuristic architecture to the new restaurant of Ferrari, Italy's most important sports car company. Using shapes that seem inspired by space flight, his intriguing design features many areas that showcase Hunter Douglas ceilings.


On the exterior, the irregular plan of the ceiling soffits created a challenging installation that was fully met with 80B and 30B linear ceilings by Hunter Douglas. Two different colors - silver and dark gray - create an interplay of contrast and slat dimensions. In the first-floor canteen, which can hold more than 600 people, Techstyle® E acoustical ceilings were used to optimize acoustics.


The panels' white colour blend well with the wooden, white-stained beams and the light ceramic floor of the canteen. The installation was also quite hard in this area, due to the sloped section of the ceiling and the requirement for separated "islands" that fit perfectly among the wooden beams.

Marco Visconti Architects as Architects

Our design of New Ferrari restaurant in Maranello is directly influenced by general concepts of passive architecture. From a conceptual point of view the main shape refers to an helicopter fin section providing inner shading and transparency during operation hours, its design directly considers solar path. Southern exposed roof is covered by PV panels and ground floor spaces are protected by the main overhanging volume containing a restaurant pavilion. While third floor is dedicated to restaurant functions, peculiar ground floor sinuous plan provides space for main kitchen and wellness center. Mezzanine level contains a training center and main ground floor lobby is surrounded by a double height glazed space.


The plasticity of the volumetric forms free the building from the rigid blocks that generally characterize areas destined for high foot-fall rates, the dynamic design of the interiors allows and facilitates socializing and the huge glazed surfaces amplify the space perception.
