The project is located in the heart of the new financial district of Milan, near Garibaldi train station and piazza Gae Aulenti.
As such it sits at the intersection of the older, traditional Milan and the new “glass and steel” district that has transformed the city.
Our design tries to capture this unique context as well as acknowledging the prominent corner the building stands on.

The surrounding area is part of a urban plan from the 60s, characterized by square or rectangle shaped monolithic blocks, sharing similar aspects, creating a uniform look for the area, with the site enclosed between three of these blocks and via Soderini.
The volume has a monolithic aspect, aligned to the existing building, although it remains compact, avoiding soil consumption, in order to leave as much space as possible for vegetation and to keep the fragmented character of the urban fabric.
