San Prospero’s Building

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management

Milan, Italy 
3,000 sqm built
2014 (historical building dated 1890)

The five-story building was first built in the 18th century as a residential building and later converted into an office complex. The renovation project greatly improved the functional and performance quality of the building, thanks to design and technological solutions that aimed at achieving high energy efficiency and spatial flexibility.

The façade framework, made with bricks, during wintertime used to cause high heat loss. The problem was solved through the use of an Exterior Insulation and Finishing System, placed in the inner side of the façade to keep the original style outside unaltered. In addition, given the peculiar location of the building in the city center of Milan, a heavily congested area, all the windows were replaced with double-glass and insulated materials, to increase the thermal and acoustic insulation of the building.

The result is a perfect harmony between the traditional and historical elements of the building, like the elegant hall with its main stairway, marble finishing and mosaic glass windows, and the advanced structural -equipment solutions adopted to maximize the comfort level of the interior areas.

Progetto CMR is awarded the 2015 REbuild  Award for the “San Prospero” building refurbishment.
