MILAN | UnipolSai Tower | 126m | 413ft | 23 fl | U/C



A new headquarters for Italian insurance group UnipolSai. The tower will rise in Porta Nuova district, near the 'Library of Trees' public park and the Gae Aulenti Piazza; between UniCredit Tower and Solaria Tower.


The winner project of the international competition is an eco-sustainable iconic tower (mainly composed by glass and wood) designed by Mario Cucinella Architects.


The base is a spacious common hall connected to the main square, an auditorium and a cafeteria. Offices and training areas occupy the tower and a central void stretches from the hall to the highest end of the building. On top, a green terrace hosts several exclusive spaces for meetings and expositions.

Unfortunately the cubage that they have avaiable, and especially the building code(?), allows the construction of a tower of this height , net of sails or other elements on the roof

Btw, it's more likely to be 96m!

Another project competing at the international contest, but discarded.
The proposal was submitted by architecture firm Piuarch

The building is composed by the superposition of two tapes, one continues from the square the other one move upwards. The lower body takes the alignment of the surrounding buildings, it is oriented on the main axis.


The change in the rhythm of the vertical elements of the facade creates different levels of permeability. The green courtyards and the green square/botanical garden, improve comfort of interior spaces and workplaces, contributing to bioclimatic welfare.







The large glass volume houses a green square that stands as fulcrum of the new building. The glass volume opens outward offering different views and perspectives according to their different functions and levels.

UnipolSai Tower will be 120 meters height, (23 floors). Construction work begin in 2017.

Quote:
(...) Non solo. Del piano fa parte soprattutto la realizzazione della nuova sede, nel quartiere di Porta Nuova a Milano. Edificio che sarà realizzato su disegno di Mario Cucinella. La settimana scorsa è stata completata la documentazione per la richiesta dei titoli edilizi. Cento milioni di euro il valore complessivo dell’opera, tenuto conto del costo dei terreni. In tutto 23 piani fuori terra – per un’altezza di 120 metri – e tre interrati che saranno terminati a fine 2019 (i lavori inizieranno a inizio 2017). L’edificio si distinguerà per l’elevata qualità e per le soluzioni innovative. L’obiettivo è ottenere la certificazione Leed premium. (...)

New renders


The new headquarters is charaterized by a fine and functional design, the result of a rigorous project development, through every element of the building, from the building to the facede system, from the interior to the public spaces around the structure, contribute to create an efficient machine without giving anything to the pure formalism.

The building has 23 floors above ground - plus 3 floors underground - and a total area of 31,000 sqm. The facade, with its shaped geometry, is also a methaphor of the web-like system of social relationships. Made of steel, wood and glass the tower will host commercial spaces, a major auditorium of over 270 places, offices and a panoramic office garden with a space for meetings and to host public cultural events.

It is a lot like Milan's D2 or Gherkin. But I think it will be more beautiful than both, especially with that atrium.
