The project

  • Location MILANO - ITALY
  • Date 2018
  • Studio Studio ACPV, Antonio Citterio, Patricia Viel

The ACPV - Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel firm designed the new Fastweb Headquarters, a building that forms part of the ambitious Symbiosis project, a new business district characterized by majestic buildings constructed with a strong focus on ecological sustainability. Located between Corso Lodi and Via Ripamonti, a short distance from the Fondazione Prada, Symbiosis embodies a revolutionary and impressive renovation project over an area of 100,000 sq m.

Symbiosis is an innovative and energy-efficient urban renewal project. The masterplan re-imagines a fragment of Milan and gives the city and its inhabitants a public space with great livability and outstanding qualities.Beyond its architectural details, the urban project’s nature is expressed in the fluid, continuous and highly integrated elements of its buildings and public spaces. Like other buildings in the business district, the Fastweb project strengthens the links between work and city, between the role of a large company and the energy that its community can bring to the environment.

Product used

Cotto d’Este surfaces were chosen to cover the ventilated façades of the new Fastweb Headquarters, specifically 3.5mm-thick Argerot from the CLUNY Kerlite3Plus collection. The Cluny collection features the intensely mineral surface typical of Burgundy stone. Matt and tactile to the touch, the Cluny Argerot surface has a slight coating effect that makes it soft and captivating.

The collaboration with the Citterio-Viel firm – which has overseen other prestigious projects including the construction of Doha airport in 2015 – confirms once again Cotto d’Este’s ability to provide solutions dedicated to architecture, thanks to a high-quality, technologically and aesthetically advanced product and to a range of formats and thicknesses that guarantee a unique choice.

The Symbiosis project’s focus on environmental sustainability is another of Kerlite’s advantages. Indeed, thanks to its reduced use of raw materials, lower consumption of water and energy and lower CO2 emissions, Kerlite is a ceramic solution with a low environmental impact.

Slowing down today, to come back stronger tomorrow.

Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.

Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.

Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.

Nevertheless, the company is not closing.

We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.

We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.

We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
