A new headquarters for Italian insurance group Reale Group. The tower (88 m; 290 ft) will rise nearby Porta Nuova's Gae Aulenti square, Corso Como Place and Feltrinelli Foundation, in an area served by public transports. WOMB -the acronym of Wellness Over Milano Bureaux, but whose meaning is also a "mother's womb"- aims to be a protective, welcoming, and sustainable workplace in a post-pandemic world. Steel, concrete, glass, a series of terraces, and facades with holm oaks will replace an old office building with poor energy performances. The eco-sustainable building is designed by Rome-based architecture firm Labics in collaboration with ARUP Italia.
