Residential Building

The project i located on a site of 19,320 smq on Gallarate Street in Milan near the 2012 Expo. The ground floor is a mix of public services (shops, playing area for children, connections to the park) and private spaces (halls for the apartments, private gardens).

The building is composed of three parts: the commercial area with its rounded shapes, the five story building, and the two tower ifty meters high. The two underground floors are used for parking, cellars/storage (one for each apartment), and technical areas.

The skin wraps the two different typologies of the tower and the in line building. In the inner part the skin is replaced by horizontal wood sticks that give a warm and domestic feeling.
