studiometrico has transformed an old theater in Milan into a skateboarders dream. Their clients, Comvert produces clothing and accessories for snowboarding and skateboarding. Needing to fully integrate the administrative and design departments, along with a flagship store, studiometrico incorporated the needs of all aspects of the company into a single space.

Built in 1940, the Cinema Istria had previously held a car dealership, but with this project it became fully re-concieved. The most glorious aspect of the design is a skate bowl, suspended above all the working departments. The full story is available at ArchDaily, and fully worth checking out.
