A new mixed-use residential complex conceived in the spirit of sustainable urban development and located a stone’s throw away from some of Milan’s most visited monuments, Gate Central will offer 1,700 sqm of residential and retail spaces while regenerating an area that was heavily bombarded in wartime Milan.
THE BUILDING’S FLEXIBLE LAYOUT FACILITATES AGILE WORK PROCESSES, FOSTERING INTERACTION THROUGH COLLABORATIVE WORKSPACES AND ALLOWING PEOPLE TO CONNECT SEAMLESSLY WITH PEOPLE WORKING REMOTELY.
ACPV celebrates the topping out of Building D, the second office complex to be completed in the Symbiosis business district of Covivio, in Milan, Italy. Soon after the completion of the adjacent NEXXT Fastweb Headquarters by ACPV, the new building will redefine the idea of workspace as a place that can adapt to employees’ personal and professional needs. As a highly energy-efficient building designed with social sustainability in mind, Building D is a timely response to the major developments currently underway in the south of Milan.

[ITA in fondo alla pagina] The once vibrant shopping streets of many cities are becoming empty today, leaving a series of unused spaces to adapt to new purposes. We believe it is essential to transform these spaces in order to give new layers of identity to these urban spaces with a revamped retail concept. By becoming multifunctional spaces, these new commercial spaces would offer new experiences, emotions for customers, and new opportunities for a revitalized culture of enterprise.

Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel has completed residential tower La Bella Vita in the fast-growing 7th District of Taichung, Taiwan. The 128-meter-high tower aims to integrate the character and identity of nearby Charlotte Park, while fostering a dynamic relationship with the surrounding urban context. Located in close proximity to several department stores, civic buildings and cultural venues, the 33,000-sqm high-rise creates a new residential community in the commercial heart of the city, and activates the street level areas with a series of retail spaces.

The renovation of San Babila Business Center, of Galleria San Carlo, and of Galleria Passarella 2, in the heart of Milan’s historic center transforms a 21,000 sqm (GLA – Gross Leasable Area) block of buildings designed in the Fifties into a flexible and sustainable space. The project takes a careful approach to the conservation of the buildings’ original details, while elevating their character and elegantly integrating the architecture in the surrounding urban context.

Arte is a collection of 16 luxury residences on the sunny oceanfront of Surfside-Miami, Florida. Its architecture addresses the urban streetscape–the leisurely character of hospitality and residential buildings along Collins Avenue–and the building’s exposure to the beach on the east side. Protective yet fragile in nature, the architecture of the residences celebrate outdoor living in a uniquely Italian fashion.
