Text description provided by the architects. Located in the heart of Milan, within the Monumentale area, the building shows an innovative approach in addressing metro­politan residential issues. The project aims at interacting with a broader spatial and cultural context, embracing the residential Milanese tradition of XX Century, with its contemporary urban interventions.

This “Milan Style”, that spanned mostly between the aftermath of World War II and the economic boom of the Sixties, is represented through several buildings designed by architects such as Gio Ponti and Luigi Cac­cia Dominioni.

Site Plan
Site Plan

The new building reflects the layout of the original demolished building, with facades aligned to street limits. Building morphology is characterized by the particular shape of the cor­ner plot, where the two building wings meet each other forming a sharp angle. Consistently with urban planning regulations, the design is conceived to rebuild the urban fabric, harmonising build­ing’s height to that of surrounding buildings.

Street elevations are sober and elegant, characterized by the adoption of specific techni­cal solutions, such as sandstone facades and cantileverloggias. The effect of the latter solution constitutes an interruption in the volume of the building, gener­ating an overall dynamic and contemporary image.
