BOSCO VERTICALE

Bosco Verticale in Milan is a residential complex comprising two prestigious buildings that are perfectly integrated into the surrounding parks and gardens, and is part of “Varesine Porta Nuova” project, the foremost urban and architectural redevelopment in Europe.Designed by Stefano Boeri and built by Hines Italia in Milan’s Porta Nuova district, the project won the prestigious “International Highrise Award 2014” promoted by the Frankfurt Architectural Museum, which every two years awards a prize for the world’s most beautiful and innovative high-rise building.Bosco Verticale proposes a new way of living, balancing comfort, a central location and safety, with the desire to be immersed in nature. The two residential tower blocks are 80 and 112 metres high respectively, comprise 113 different-sized apartments with different layouts, each with access to a balcony or patio. In total these host 800 trees between 3 and 9 metres in height, together with 11,000 perennials and ground-cover plants and 5,000 shrubs: the equivalent of 20,000 m2 of woodland and undergrowth.Being a cutting-edge project whose main criteria are environmental sustainability and impact, and quality design, the designers entrusted the air-conditioning system for the entire complex to Sabiana, which supplied around a thousand fan coils and flues.
