Thinked as an architectural scale development of the bigger masterplan designed by Studio Redaelli Speranza, the residential building – with commercial functions on the ground floor – is located in an extraordinaty place born from the relation of Naviglio Martesana and the town of Gorgonzola.
The aim of the project is to generate an urban pavillion with a marittime character, in order to connect the renewed public space of Vicolo Corridoni, with the Naviglio and the old town. The commercial ground floor take collective functions in a renewed piece of town, strategical to recreate a relation with Martesana and palazzo Pirola. On the upper floors are the duplex flats, which their metal barrel vault becomes a Naviglio’s landscape icon.
Flats entrance is put on the north landing, which uses the adjoining building’s stairs; flats have a living area on the lower level, with a terrace facing the Naviglio, and a sleeping area on the higher level, covered by barrel vault, where bedrooms face a patio southbound and towards the Naviglio, constant presence in the spirit of the place and in the residential building project.
