Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli
13 December 2016
The Feltrinelli Porta Volta complex plays an important role in a strategic area of Milan that has been involved in a far-reaching process of urban regeneration in recent years. The twin buildings that host the Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli and the offices of Microsoft Italia were inspired by the simplicity and impressive scale of Milan's historic architectural landscape. They present a rhythmic, linear layout, together with steeply pitched roofs that integrate perfectly into the facades.
For this important project, UniFor provided the furnishings and partition systems for the three upper floors, including both series products and custom works conceived specifically for the unique spaces by Studio Herzog & de Meuron in collaboration with Coima Image. In particular, the two floors devoted to offices are defined by full-height partition walls adapted to the project specifications, with structure in natural-finish aluminum fixed at the ceiling and glazed paneling inserted in guides concealed in the raised flooring.
