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.

DESIGN GaS Studio
The aim of this project is to design a new high-quality student accommodation located in front of Milan University in the Bicocca area. The building is characterized by playful facade with variations of glazed white solid elements that reference the homogeneous context designed by Vittorio Gregotti.
The glass surfaces are used to highlight from outside the functions of internal building areas. The smaller sections were implemented for rooms and residences, while bigger ones were used to identify common shared areas on different floors. The geometrical facade is “moving” thanks to splayed and skylight windows.
