Maggiore Hospital
Milan | Zone 1


design: Stefano Boeri Architetti (same designer of Bosco Verticale), Barreca & La Varra.
client: Fondazione Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico Mangiagalli e Regina Elena
area: 80,000 sqm
value: 266 million euro


The project works and on the city centre, introducing a different conception of hospital, from the actual one, made by different pavillons and organizing the new hospital as unique conceptual building.




The new hospital is an integrated building, that links the two different poles (medical centre, and mother and child centre). The intervention reconnects the new sanitary and non sanitary services both for the new and the old hospital poles.

The construction of the new health care complex is to be considered as a regeneration process for the entire area. The project provides new urban functions as green spaces, commercial areas, linking different parts of the city and providing new pedestrian paths.




Demolition/preparation works already started.

Brera art gallery is one of the most important art galleries in the world for classic italian art. Everyone should be allowed to visit it at least once in a lifetime.

7 Peleocapa
Milan | Zone 1


design: Scandurra Studio
status: U/C

The project wants to reveal the identity of the building by Pietro Lingeri. The process is carried out through the study and research of the original features of the building.


It is essential the discovery of photos taken in the building-site of the time that reveal the clarity and formal simplicity that in following remakes and restructurings got lost in the years. The re-proportioning of the opening on the façade is meant to be considered as the first of the interventions.




The redesign of the gate on via Paleocapa and of the shelter at the gate are new elements and at the same time they dialogue with the proportions of the pre-existing elements and they give the building a renewed aesthetic and formal precision.


The redistribution of the green areas with the creation of the areas for the users, allows them to be used and it makes it a pleasant place to stay at.
The internal space is thought to be in continuity with the external space. Stone, metal, and glass are materials that characterize this space.




How the building was...

Caserma Mameli
Milan | Zone 9


design: OnsiteStudio
client: Cassa Depositi e Prestiti Immobiliare
area: 101,500 sqm
status: ongoing

The Implementing Plan on the Caserma Mameli area, in line with the contents and addresses of the PGT of the City of Milan, investigates and researches the reconnection of urban texture and environmental rehabilitation of the Caserma’s abandoned areas.


It integrates the new building, characterized by different and discrete types and heights, and places it in relation with the immediate context of the organic and punctual system of INACASA district and of the ordered system and large-scale morphologies of military buildings.


The project maintains, compatibly and in line with the new public functions, physical presence and memory of military artifacts, along with the landscape dimension that characterizes them: it is expected the increase of the allocation of municipal public buildings dedicated to areas and services of general public interest, through the functional and architectural renovation of the buildings of the barracks.




The big public urban park is a new center polarity inside the area, with new equipment and infrastructure for play, leisure and outdoor town events. Much of the area is also used for the construction of social housing with different types and fee mode, so as to increase the mixité of the area.


The project will promote a permeability of the area against possible flows that connect public transport systems, pedestrian traffic, cycling and neighborhood spaces.

15 Leopardi Residences
Milan | Zone 1


design: BMS
client: Leopardi Real Estate
status: U/C
value: 20 million euro

Conceived and designed by Ludovico Magistretti and Guido Veneziani between 1958 and 1961, the building is situated in the historical center of Milan, close to Cadorna railway station and Sempione Park. The first customer, “L’Abeille – Italian insurance company”, commissioned the two architects to design a mixed-use, offices and residences, building. The two functions, residential and offices, have changed over the years to reach the current state of almost complete transformation into an office building for AXA insurance company. The new property has analyzed the potential of the building along with the characteristics of the neighborhood and decided on residential function for the entire building.


The project envisages the integral conversion of the above ground floors into residential spaces and therefore it includes all those interventions aimed at ensuring compliance with the regulations in force concerning elimination of architectural barriers just as fire safety, and will provide all the necessary housing equipment. In particular, the basement level will host shared spaces (communal room, gym) and service rooms (reception, laundry room, safe room, waste room, gardening tools room) typical of luxury residential estates. The existing basement and the two new underground levels to be carried out will be entirely dedicated to garage, cellars and technical rooms.




The project use both courtyards as communal gardens for the benefit of residents : the restoration of the green area is determined by the will to restore their function as gardens as planned in the original design of Magistretti and Veneziani, in a coherent dialogue with the courtyards tradition of Milan.










The project also includes the optimization of consumption through coating insulation and replacement of windows and fixtures, in order to achieve the highest energy efficiency classes. This goal will be also achieved with the inclusion of alternative energy sources, in particular the geothermal heat.

DOSSIER: Metropoli Milano 2030, shaping the city of the future.

In September 2016, the City Council of Milan -which was renovated in recent mayoral elections- will begin the discussion regarding the future of dismitted areas, once used by the railway network, surrounding the old town of Milan. The City of Milan in collaboration with Regione Lombardia and the Ferrovie dello Stato (the Italian Railway Network) has to find an agreement over the complete redevelopment of the seven areas involving a total surface of about 1,300,000 sqm.


So the question is: How to shape the city of the future? The renovation of the areas might be completed by 2030. The current owner intends to put on sale the areas; national and international real estate funds could make a tender for the acquisition of each area, and start with a private project.

The chief executive of Ferrovie dello Stato -Urban Systems section-, Carlo De Vito, had a meeting with Urban Planning Councillor, Pierfrancesco Maran. The experts of Ferrovie dello Stato are already collaborating with the city offices, but the debate will also involve the citizens. Maran announced on his Facebook account: "It was one of the most important issues that we talked about during the election campaign (...) We will involve the entire city because the issue is not only an urban regeneration agreement but a way to plan the Milan of the future".

Certainly, Ferrovie dello Stato will make big spending in creating new stations, roads and other infrastructures that will serve to connect the different dismitted areas with the nearest neighborhoods. However, according to the preliminary plan, each area will have a different use that could provide for the construction of new towers, skyscrapers and not only; while new public parks and gardens are ensured.

THE SEVEN AREAS
1) Farini-Lugano ... 629,300 sqm (this place is near Porta Nuova)
2) Porta Romana ... 217,207 sqm
3) San Cristoforo ... 171,683 sqm
4) Porta Genova ... 109,130 sqm
5) Greco-Breda ... 72,166 sqm
6) Lambrate ... 70,716 sqm
7) Rogoredo ... 21,079 sqm

DOSSIER: Office rents rising in Italy, Milan leads prices list.

Office rental prices are rising. Retaking the driver’s seat in investments, in the first half of 2016 the office sector has shown a general rise in rent, confirming that the recovery registered in recent years continues. According to a recently-published report by World Capital the highest rents can be found in Milan, with values that (in the case of the new CDB Porta Nuova) reach a peak of €500 per square meter each year, while in the rest of the city center rates have reached €480/smq/year.

It’s a different story in the suburbs. In the outskirts of Milan rent prices have fallen by around 10%. In this case, however, World Capital’s analysis didn’t take into account Beni Stabili’s Symbiosis development project, located between via Gargano and via Adamello. This is where the new Fastweb offices will be located (16,000 sqm). As far as yields are concerned, they are falling in all of the cities except for the suburbs of Turin and Milan, where they have grown from 7.5% to 8% and 7.7% to 8% respectively. The necessary cuts vary greatly between Florence, Bologna, Padua, Naples, and Milan.


The big international investors have continued to search for high-quality offices to buy. Amongst the most recent deals in Milan, BNP Paribas rented the entire Diamond Tower. At the moment, the former head offices of Corriere della Sera are on the market, being offered by Cushman & Wakefield. Near that location, JP Morgan is ready to renovate the headquarters of UBI Banca.

Torre e Palazzo dei Gorani + new residences
Milan | Zone 1


design: Cecchi & Lima Architetti Associati + restoration work
status: U/C






The glories of the past meet the innovations of the present and the technology of the future and create a completely new dimension. In the heart of Milan, in a long-forgotten area damaged during the WWII, the Residenze di Palazzo Gorani are two elegant residential buildings with a spacious and relaxing green public area, built around the evocative medieval Torre Gorani, which was also restored.






Balance and harmony between the innovation and functionality of the housing and the value of the archaeological finds which have been uncovered in this area and made accessible: the open-air remains of the erstwhile seat of the Roman Imperial Palace.










The new residenes have double skin façades with self-cleansing plaster, bronze and steel window fittings in line with standards of the classic elegance. The use of groundwater for the air-conditioning system as well as the latest-generation radiant panels offers maximum comfort with minimum environmental impact. The energy efficiency class A assures minimum energy consumption.

DOSSIER: UniMi, from CittàStudi to Expo area


The rector of the Statal University of Milan, Gianluca Vago, wants to inaugurate the new campus by 2021, or at least he would like to see professors, students and researchers in the area that hosted the 2015 Universal Exhibition as soon as possible. "We have tried to imagine an innovative campus in line with the best European universities, able to look at the future unifying study, research, innovation" said Vago.

Concept design by Japanese archistar Kengo Kuma





The plan is to build a campus that concentrate all scientific faculties, near the Human Technopole, the Innovative Research Hub, the Startup Valley and more. All these projects, which will be surrounded by green spaces, are part of the post-Expo plan.

The new campus should cover a surface of 150,000 sqm in order host 20,000 people. According to the feasibility study elaborated by Boston Consulting Group, the project should be financed with an investment of 340/380 million euro by the Statal University of Milan, Regional or National Government, and by the selling of the huge property that currently host the campus in Città Studi.


SEE MORE ABOUT THE HUMAN TECHNOPOLE
The post-Expo plan includes the so-called "Human Technopole": ie the creation of an international research and applied technology center dedicated not only to the legacy of Expo 2015 "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life", but also to the skills that will help humanity in two fields: how to live a high quality life, increase the life expectancy.

The Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa, the Institute for International Interchange in Turin, the Edmund Mach Foundation in Trento will work together for the creation of this project in Milan. Are included different collaborations with universities and private companies like University of Milan, Polytechnic of Milan, Assolombarda, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, the Weizman Institute, IBM, Google, Bayer, Nokia, Dupont, ST Microelectronics, Ferrero, Barilla, Create, Glaxo Smith Kline, Novartis, Nestle, Unilever, Benetton, St. Paul, Crt, Umberto Veronesi Foundation.

The project will engage about two thousand Italian and foreign researchers and industrial partnerships aimed at achieving improvements in four areas:
1) robotics support (for surgery, rehabilitation, prosthetics)
2) intelligent materials (plastics plant, water purification, biomedical applications)
3) nanomedicine (for example smart drugs)
4) genomics (mapping genes to prevent diseases)

Microsoft Headquarters
Milan | Zone 1


interior design: DEGW Architects
status: U/C

Microsoft will open its new headquarters in February 2017, inside the iconic, clean-cut building designed by Herzog & De Meuron on behalf of the Feltrinelli Building (see official thread).

Interaction with iconic architecture
In order to create a harmonious balance between the interiors and Herzog & De Meuron’s architecture, DEGW started from the original building project, which is based around the concept of a Gothic-style Lombard building lot: long and narrow with a glazed pitched roof (reminiscent of a sort of Gothic cathedral) where the triple-height top floor is located. The building is located near historical Porta Tenaglia (Porta Volta), bordering between the old city and new Porta Nuova Business District, along the line of the old Spanish walls. The simple, innovative and friendly concept that DEGW has incorporated in the project location derives from a combination of the city’s historical legacy and the technological innovation associated with the Microsoft world.


Smart working
The project is part of an enterprise Microsoft Italia first began 10 years ago in the name of a “New World of Work”, an approach to the dynamics of work that involves greater staff flexibility in terms of smart working and the use of functional and technologically innovative spaces to maximise productivity and cooperation. Well-being and the reconciling of personal and professional requirements are the linchpin around which time management and this new way of working revolve, according to which flexibility is an important means of hitting targets. In this process Microsoft drew on the innovative consultancy offered by DEGW, which is responsible for creating interiors embodying Microsoft values in the best way possible and accommodating new means of coming together and working in a pleasant and efficient environment.


Interior design
DEGW has designed the 7500 sqm of the Microsoft headquarters along the lines free and fluid organisation. The open-space work areas do not feature any dedicated work stations, everybody will move through the spaces according to the business operations they are working on.
The meeting rooms and relaxation areas are aimed at encouraging interaction and communication between both work teams and individual workers. DEGW has developed the overall workspace based on a synergy between the city of Milan’s historical heritage and Microsoft’s smart, technological approach to bring together the past and present. This concept is embodied inside DEGW’s customised interior design and space, which is more like a home than a workplace.

DEGW has designed the interior architecture giving priority to Italian taste in design, creating a warm and welcoming environment using natural materials like wood. Wooden structural features incorporated in the space are reminiscent of terraces and the kind of outside settings typical of Italy, where the external garden environment actually penetrates into inside space. Natural features like plants and flower beds are incorporated in the ground-floor entrance. The non-assigned open-space workstations on the various operating floors differ from each other in terms of layout and aesthetics in accordance with function. Certain areas are more communicative and others more private to create a workspace that is not monotonous and encourages creativity. Another fundamental feature of the overall design are the customised, dedicated ‘social hubs’ focusing around three chosen themes: sport, nature and the city. The idea was to create customised spaces in terms of the finishes and furnishing that reflect a chosen theme.


Innovation
Technology allows increasingly flexible work models to be developed, thanks to the possibility of working in any location at any time. DEGW thinks it is particularly important to convey the cutting-edge nature of this phenomenon in a place where innovation itself is being developed. This means technology is carefully designed into the details and connected to the construction’s Building Management System, in order to create a technologically cutting-edge and innovative setting. This project is an authentic showcase of Microsoft’s latest innovations.
