GARIBALDI TOWERS

Cities: MILAN
Countries: ITALY

Designer: PROGETTO CMR
Inaugurazione: 2013
The two buildings, of 23 floors each, were transformed in the first Italian “green towers”, designed against an eco sustainable criteria. A careful restyling made the realization of buildings with zero emissions possible, thanks to solar and photovoltaic panels, natural ventilation, interactive facades and bioclimatic greenhouses on every floor. 
The main facades are multifaceted with four different angles of inclination which shine like diamonds at the light of the sun, being furthermore evolved technical mechanisms which consist of interactive ventilated cells for an elevated control over the interior climatic comfort. 
Technology, aesthetics and tradition are merged in a project which represents the new face of Milan.
