A 360° Concept
The approach towards redeveloping the Montecity – Rogoredo area, in terms of the part that has not yet been implemented, has raised many methodological questions that have required input from scientists and various professionals along with a constructive dialogue with institutional and social stakeholders.
Before embarking on the urban and design aspects of Milano Santa Giulia, the multi-disciplinary project team, led by Foster+Partners, one of the world’s most innovative architectural firms, spent time reflecting on the type of district they wanted to create, identifying the project’s core values and integrating the development with Milan’s urban, social and economic structure.
A variety of issues and themes were considered in this context:
The final result was to propose a new design idea, characterised by a strong identity based on three key elements:
An open neighbourhood, not exclusive, but focused on social integration.
A neighbourhood with a high degree of innovation built around two core values: sustainability and smartness.
A district that can become a benchmark, nationally and internationally, for positive integration with its surroundings (metropolitan Milan) and an effective balance between residential use, commercial use and collective interests.
A NEW SMART NEIGHBOURHOOD
Milano Santa Giulia is an integral part of Milan’s urban fabric;
it is a new district made up of a residence complex combined with services and areas for work, shopping and leisure time.
