MILAN | Winter Gardens | 16 fl | App


Winter Gardens
Milan's Porta Nuova

Design > Caputo Partnership International
Developer > China Investment


"When I'm considering a new investment, I always start with a thorough market analysis." With this simple principle Xiao Dong Zhu, chairman and CEO of China Investment Bank, explains why he invested €70 million in Winter Gardens, a deluxe hospitality facility in Porta Nuova district geared to Chinese tourists and businessmen. "Data tells us that every year more than 100 million Chinese visit Europe, in particular Italy, France, Spain and Greece" added Xiao. "So it's a good time to invest in Europe, and I chose Italy as a launching pad because I love this country, its history, its culture, and especially Milan, the capital of luxury and high-fashion. It's dynamic, lively". "This is just a pilot project, we will continue to invest" he concluded.


The project was designed by architecture firm Caputo Partnership International. Located in Porta Nuova, behind the upcoming Library of Trees public park and not far from UniCredit Tower and Gae Aulenti plaza, the building will be 16 floors above ground and 6 underground for a total of 13,000 square meters with more than 100 luxury apartments. The ground level will house stores, offices, services and green areas. The building provides for 200 sqm of solar and photovoltaic panels. The style and design is Italian, said architect Paolo Caputo, but with concessions to the tastes of an Oriental clientele. The building is well linked to Milano Centrale station and Milano Garibaldi station, M2 and M3 stops.


Winter Gardens have been defined as the answer of another important project in Porta Nuova: Bosco Verticale (Upright Forest) see threads 1-2

The peculiarity of the Winter Gardens are greenhouses that characterize each apartment, hosting decorative plants, flowers, small vertical gardens, shrubs and vines, sapling citrus and more. Terraces are intended to cover gardens and roof gardens.

In I Giardini d’Inverno (The Winter Gardens) nothing is left to chance and everything is studied in detail. A luxury building with prestigious finishes, occupies over 13,000 sqm. There will be 127 apartments and the space on the ground floor facing via Pirelli is intended for businesses in the commercial services industry. The building is not constructed of a simple tower but is a complex structured in three constructed bodies that root the new construction to the location and urban shape. The building, details and finishes reflect the most sophisticated Italian home style that is synonymous with excellence, welcome and comfort.






Beginning with the entrance lobby and the common spaces of the residence, the quality of the living space expresses the maximum attention to the materials, details, colours, natural light and artificial illumination that together contribute to creatinga harmonious and recognisable whole: simple, yet at the same time, sophisticated and calming. The art of living is expressed naturally and is expressed also by the privileged relationship between the inside and outside thanks to the presence of large balconies and terraces that enlarge the space of the apartments, further enriched by The Winter Gardens that represent a natural extension to the outside.




Living in The Winter Gardens residence means living a unique experience: the Italian home style, the style of your house. The residence represents the most up-to-date and sophisticated response to living comfort and respect for the environment: in fact, the foreseen technological equipment and the materials used guarantee absolute control over the quality of the living space, elastic and flexible, able to be adapted to the most diverse needs of daily life in every season of the year, but which at the same time strictly adhere to the requests of a passive building, the most self-sufficient, which in its construction uses sustainable and recyclable materials. But not only this. The centralisation of the control of all the installations and the sophisticated automation of all the areas by the residents guarantees a calibrated and personalised usage that reduces waste and dispersion.


The comfort and quality of the living spaces is expressed also through the services and opportunities offered to the residents. In fact, there are internal services foreseen, which will guarantee easy and confidential management of everyday life. Beginning with a 24-hour concierge with central control, maximum attention to security and the general management of the building with a dry cleaner and a condominium gym on the first floor facing the internal garden. Then there is also a Spa, pool, restaurants, cafès, bakery, that will be open to the public, but with a separate entrance for residents respecting the private life of the condominium. The quality of the living space cannot exclude quality and the coherency of its realisation. Energy efficiency. The building will be realised in the A+ energy class and the space of the attic will have 200 metres of solar and photovoltaic panels.

There will be 110 "greenhouses" on the facades and an exclusive panoramic swimming pool on the roof.

Some brief news:
- Works will be completed in two years.
- The commercialization of the apartments began today, with many requests collected in recent months, mainly by Italians, but also Europeans and Chinese customers.
- The Chinese fund is eyeing other investment possibilities in Milan. The "Winter Gardens" is just the first investment they are doing in the city, but big investments in the former railways yards are not excluded.
