Multi-purpose Open Space


In a 1960’s Gio Ponti building right in the centre of Milan, the international law firm CGSH has expanded its existing offices, developing a multipurpose space in the basement of the building. The main challenge of the project concerned the lack of direct sun light and the need to ensure appropriate sound and thermal insulation. Hence, the idea of realizing an external “light box” made of glass, with a wooden functional ring on the inside, so to leave out the existing structure and plants of the building. via
