Via Archimede 47 + Milano
The project is about recovery of an existing volume located in the attic of a building consisting of three floors above ground in the Via Archimede. The surroundings presents multi-storey residential buildings aligned on a public road with a very fragmented development, with a resulting urban disorder feeling. This analysis focuses on the planning of a “different ” building structure in the use of materials reflecting the contemporary spirit. The surface of the façade is made of perforated sheet metal panels in modules of 50 cm and light colour bronze, mounted on a concealed metal frame. The external blinds of the windows, are made out of the same material. These panels also contribute to make this new body a clear “object”. The cover is also made of sheet metal panels, pre-coated with bronze color. In conclusion, the design intention was to achieve a well defined body harmonized with the existing parts, through the use of modern technologies.
