Architect Alessandro Scandurra, Scandurra Studio Architettura

Another example of urban regeneration is provided by Sarca 235, the redevelopment of a building in the north-eastern suburbs of Milan, a former industrial area that is undergoing many changes. As Alessandro Scandurra explains: “For the Sarca 235 project, I was inspired by office buildings from the 1960s, trying to break free from the formal theme.”

The result is a representative office with a decorative metal cladding, obtained from special work with pigments and texture of sheets. As to environmental sustainability, the building has obtained the highest level of the Leed certification, Leed Platinum. Leed certification measures metrics related to energy and water efficiency, CO2 emissions, materials and resources, and the choice of site.
