Residential building - New construction, Milan 2005 2006

                                                                 Project for a residential building located in an historic urban context formed by homogenous lots with buildings and gardens from the early 1900s. The typological coherence with the existing context is maintained by the new L-shaped volume composed of two four storey orthagonal wings with gable roofs (gross floor area 3.150 sq. mt.). The building presents an urban front along the street and has an internal wing on the north side of the lot, leaving the principal part of the garden, with tall trees, intact and optimizing the perspective view of the adjacent green areas. The street facade, articulated by regular orders of rectangular windows, is more opaque, while the internal elevations are animated by loggias and large picture windows towards the garden  to take advantage of the greenery and the silence. The service access for the garden and to the three floors of underground parking is on the north side of the lot.
