Designed by Piuarch, the housing unit in via Montegani, Milan, is now completed

Almost one hundred years ago, the site was occupied by a factory specialized in processing silk. Now, instead, is a housing unit based on energy efficiency and sustainability, which restores the main features of the pre-existing building, marching them with a contemporary aesthetic. The residential project designed by Piuarch and located in via Montegani, Milan, preserves the historical façades of the factory and works on the inner courtyard, with a detailed contrast between past and present. The south elevation is made higher by two additional levels and allows to see the new architectural design from the outside.
