Palazzo di Fuoco

Palazzo di Fuoco is one of architect Giulio Minoletti’s most famous buildings and an integral part of the daily life of the Milanese: for sixty years it has stood on Piazzale Loreto.

The renovation project for the Palazzo di Fuoco, a building owned by Kryalos SGR Spa, modernizes the building’s systems, interior design and energy performance with the aim of achieving LEED Platinum certification.

The aim is to recover the basic concept of the building, now obscured by decades of successive interventions, preserving as much as possible the original idea and the unity of the building’s image, taking up the characteristic themes of Minoletti’s architecture, reinterpreted and reinterpreted in the light of contemporary reality and the most advanced technologies available today. These themes are: light, color and transparency, but also permeability and relationship with the city.

The evolution of an iconic building

Full-height glazed elements contribute to the overall transparency of the fronts and the relationship between inside and outside.

The project is completed by a new definition of the night lighting system for the façades, using the most advanced LED technologies that make it possible to reintroduce the dichotomy between full and empty spaces, between day and night designed by Minoletti from the outset. The new lighting also restores the building’s original function of communication, which, while previously limited to the devices on the roof, now extends to the entire surface of the façades.

Through its light grid, the entire façade dynamically interfaces with the city and speaks to its viewers, communicating the time, temperature and other content.
