All maintenance works will be carried out by an external team. The apartment owners are not allowed to cut one single leaf.

Bosco Verticale by Stefano Boeri greens Milan's skyline


Stefano boeri‘s ‘Bosco Verticale’ has opened its doors to residents, five years after construction started in milan’s emerging porta nuova district. The project, which translates in english as ‘vertical forest’, comprises two landscaped towers that between them contain 113 apartments offering expansive views across the city.

The design is characterized by its integrated vegetation comprising over 1,000 different species of trees, shrubs and plants. In total, the scheme contains 780 planted trees, seeking to increase the site’s biodiversity, which may have been adversely affected during the project’s construction.


The taller of the two towers climbs to a total height of 112 meters, with staggered concrete balconies protruding from each of the scheme’s façades. Each individual dwelling features a private garden which protects interior living space from acoustic pollution, dust particles, harsh winds and direct sunlight. At roof level, photovoltaic panels contribute to the self-sufficiency of the complex, while greywater from the building is filtered and reused to irrigate the site’s extensive flora.

Additionally, as part of the area’s regeneration, main roads and parking facilities have been placed underground, making room for a 160,000 square meter pedestrianized cycling area that incorporates greenery, public squares and bridges.


The scheme has been conceived as a botanical and architectural experiment, aiming to reduce energy consumption thanks to the leaves that filter sunlight and the consequential microclimate created on each terrace.

‘I think this is a prototype of a possible way to extend the natural sphere in a hyperdense urban context‘, stefano boeri told designboom at the project’s opening. ‘This is a not a unique way to implement biodiversity in an urban environment, but it is for sure one of the most environmental ways. So let’s see together what will happen.

‘Bosco Verticale is a new concept of skyscraper, where trees and people live side by side. It is the first example in the world of a tower block which enriches the biodiversity of the flora and fauna of the city that houses it. We are continuously asked by research centers from all over the world to follow what will happen. I think that every year we could have a moment of thought and discussion about the results – month by month, year by year.‘

This will be an interesting test to see how the public takes to these kinds of builds.

Even if I was back when I wasnt interested in architecture I would have still loved every one of Milan's new buildings.

The balconies are quite striking against the black/dark grey cladding.

Bosco Verticale won International Highrise Award 2014

Bosco Verticale won the "International Highrise Award" as tallest, beautiful and most innovative skyscraper in the world. Designed by Stefano Boeri, Bosco Verticale contended the prize with other four skyscrapers: De Rotterdam in Rotterdam (Netherlands), One Central Park in Sydney (Australia), Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel in Barcelona (Spain) and Sliced Porosity Block in Chengdu (China).

The award, considered the most prestigious of its kind, is organized every two years in Frankfurt, by the German Architecture Museum: the winner is chosen by a "multidisciplinary" jury which evaluates projects for their design and their innovative technology, as well as the ability to integrate it into the urban environment.
