Allianz Headquarters

The former Allianz complex, designed in the 50s by Ponti, Portaluppi and Fornaroli, is located in the very heart of Milan. The aim of the project is to redevelop the historical building and to get the features of a multifunctional center accommodating offices, commercial spaces, art galleries and a conference hall. The volume of the previous building is preserved in terms of dimensions but changes its shape, part of the volume is indeed moved along Santa Sofia Street, strengthening the elevation towards the new public space that will host the future metro station. Right here, a new suspended volume is created and it enhances a visual connection between the new square and the inner courtyard, which extends on several floors. Inside, the building is characterized by a dynamic layout.
The overall design project reflects the commitment to use consistently the language of the existing building, attempting to reach a minimalist approach meant as an added value to the project.
