Simmetrico was appointed by the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Italy for the renovation of a historic building, built in the 1940s, to house the new Embassy of Azerbaijan in Rome.
We were in charge of art direction and technical supervision, interior design and styling, light design, fit-out production and implementation, audio video solutions, video conference systems, and domotic systems.
Our project wanted to enhance a space for dialogue and cultural sharing reinforcing, even more, the bond of friendship between Italy and Azerbaijan: from the entrance to the offices, from the lounge area to the terrace and consular services, up to the beautiful Cultural Center.
The Azerbaijan Cultural Centre is the House of Azerbaijani Heritage and Culture, inside the new Azerbaijan Embassy in Rome. We designed a welcoming and comfortable area where the rich tradition of the country is combined with its values of hospitality, friendship, and sharing to host temporary and permanent exhibitions related to Azerbaijani heritage.
The logo of the Azerbaijan Cultural Centre was born by combining together the fundamental values of the Country with its culture and artistic heritage, a kaleidoscope of symbols of its identity.
