This building is part of the Porta Nuova urban renewal project in the heart of Milan. It has an area of about 22,500 square metres distributed over five stories and a ground floor for an overall height of 26 metres, in contrast with the general plan which calls for much taller buildings.
The commercial portion is contained along a portico on ground level, while the five upper levels are for offices. The simple and sinuous form of the building articulates and integrates two volumes in a single element distinguished by a deep central fissure. 
The two façades are treated differently: the one facing north is characterized by large windows, while the curved southern façade is protected by a system of sun blinds. The building, incorporates a system of internal courtyards with coloured walls.
