Via Toffetti 19 + Milano
The project concerns the recovery of an area currently used for storage and disposal of ferrous material. The surroundings consist of buildingsused as offices and / or commercial activities without special architectural connotations. The building project is composed of a main building of six floors above ground and two underground floors, characterized by a central core where suitable for lifts – stairs – services, and two lateral bodies whose sides are inclined to allow more sunlight in glass facades. The north and south sides of the building are buffered by a double covering (fixed glass windows broken by a diamond-shaped opening outside and a sandwich panel with glass on the inside), in order to limit the consumption of primary energy. The west facade is characterized by advanced stairs, formed by two built baffles and a glass wall supported by an internal metal structure and by two walls covered with a shield of aluminum panels (8/10 rhomboid matrix) . The flat roof of the building has been designed with a system of fixed horizontal sun blades (brisoleil in white aluminium) placed at the same level of the crown of technical volumes in coverage.
