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.

The intervention area is situated in Milan, in Ponte Lambro , 19 Via DegliUmiliati, on the right bank of River LambroForlanini, southern of the airport. Via Umiliati does not directly overlook the river bank, but they’re separated by Via Camaldoli and by a some hoses in north-south direction. The only direct connection with the riverfront roads is Via Rilke. The area described is then placed in a degraded area between Via degli Umiliati and the river Lambro. The front face of the building has a double color: the ground floor and the attic consist of a coating with horizontal timber-molded aluminum slats ( light color), while the four floors are cream upon the insulating coating. The windows and sliding shutters, in pressed light wood aluminum, harmonize the a building that wants to minimize the impact of colors and materials in the construction. External pavement  consists in grass-protective ridable grids, in order to have as much green as possible on the ground floor.
