This project for the renovation of the Affori Centre in Milan, a complex for real estate services, was developed for CB Richard Ellis Investors beginning in July 2007. The intervention, which focused on the reorganization of internal spaces and renovation of the façade, includes three buildings of regular shape reachable by passing through a tunnel, which was the monolithic and characterizing element of the project taken along the water routes. Running through it, one reaches a big central lobby, onto which all floors open.
For the façade, we used a polycarbonate brise-soleil and full height frames, to highlight the horizontal and buildings proportions, allowing one to clearly read the module. The utilization of light materials such as travertine, glass and stainless steel emphasize the concept of elegance and contemporariness. To create a contrast, for the floor terraces, we used very strong colours like orange and red. The project features maximum flexibility for the interior spaces with an open plan that can be modulated to serve the tenant’s needs and a high technological standard for the offices.
