Location: Milan, Italy / Year: 2016 / Program: 5000 m2 office building / Status: competition. A project developed together with Studio Ricatti. Renderings by Emaviz
Milano is the largest Italian metropolis. Despite the economic uncertainties of the last decades, it is still a city in constant transformation and in close competition with other European capitals.
As for the latter, the future urban development of Milan - its ability to renew itself and to attract new talents - will dramatically affect its first periphery, where former industrial areas have been reconverting into creative districts.
Within this context, the design proposal aims to provide bold and efficient solutions to the challenges set out by the competition brief. The project is based on three key elements: the production of public space; the balance between formal specificity and functional flexibility; high energy performances.
