Perfectly integrated into the area but, at the same time, with a clear identity of its own
U3 is located on the western edge of the area, adjacent to the Milan-Genoa motorway. It is an in-line, double-body building, which is developed perpendicular to the carriageways in order to turn as little space as possible to traffic, so that the offices are not affected by noise and pollution.
The complex is surrounded by greenery and overlooks the central park of the Milanofiori area.
The Hall space is designed to connect the different elevations of the project area and all accesses to the functions located on the various floors of the building are accessible from one central core.
The floor plan of the typical floor provides maximum flexibility for the benefit of tenants with different possible fit-outs. The lifts and bathroom cores have been placed in a barycentric position in relation to the whole floor to ensure more rationality in the horizontal pathways on the floor.
The façade is built with modular, cellular frames in two sizes: 300×400(h) cm and 150×400(h) cm, spaced on a structural module of 9 linear metres. Blades made of a new generation composite material, “solid surface”, are attached to this modular type of façade.
The blades are of three sizes and positioned at different and progressive angles, so as to give the façade a particular curvilinear and continuous course.
