Building D tops out in Milan | AASARCHITECTURE

March 18, 2021

ACPV celebrates the topping out of Building D, the second office complex to be completed in the Symbiosis business district of Covivio, in Milan, Italy. Soon after the completion of the adjacent NEXXT Fastweb Headquarters by ACPV, the new building will redefine the idea of workspace as a place that can adapt to employees’ personal and professional needs.

As a highly energy-efficient building designed with social sustainability in mind, Building D is a timely response to the major developments currently underway in the south of Milan. The new 20,000-sqm Building D comprises two superimposed volumes: a shorter, four-floor-high portion – including mezzanine levels, double-height volumes, and roof structure – whose top floors cantilever over Via Orobia with a landscaped roof garden; and a taller, nine-floor-high portion – including roofing – with generous spatial arrangements for office spaces and commercial spaces on the ground floor.

The green outdoor area on the 75-sqm roof provides building users with a one-of-a-kind opportunity for a casual walk or physical exercise. Building D will aim to earn WELL Core certification (minimum score Bronze), and will adhere to LEED Core & Shell Platinum standards.
