MILAN | Siemens Headquarters | 62m | 203ft | U/C


Design project: Barreca & La Varra, Stefano Boeri Architetti
Collaborators: F. Lampis, A. Perego, L. Malafronte, M. Ranieri
Structure project: Arup Italia
Facilities project: Hilson Moran Italia
Client: Siemens S.p.A. Real Estate

The 180,000 sqm masterplan for the new Siemens headquarters in Milan, in its first phase includes 80,000 sqm of offices and services, and a 30,000 sqm public park.

The project is based on a system of four courtyards arranged along an east-west axis. A solid three-story basement is interrupted by a tower and volumes with different heights. A series of horizontal bands, characterized by different applications and by changes in the density and type of their green spaces, visibly mark the organizing principle of the project.

The project is part of Siemens global strategy based on sustainability. Siemens aims to reduce by 50% its CO2 emissions by 2020, and become the first major-industrial society with zero emissions by 2030. The project provides for the construction of green buildings with LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

The project is expected to be completed by 2018.
You can be born in Milan or found yourself in it, by chance. And it feels like you’ve chosen it.
