The project

  • Location Milano - Italy
  • Date 2007
  • Studio Gregotti Associati International

By law, the design for the new Pirelli office building had to respect the height, function and construction area parameters of the pre-existing industrial building. It was therefore a “building replacement” project to be carried out via the demolition and reconstruction of the spaces already present in the previous building, enhancing its architectural qualities while respecting the morphology of the historic construction fabric. 

The design and architectural choices for the redevelopment and transformation of the entire Pirelli site and its buildings were therefore made with the goal of underlining the continuity of production established in the area throughout the 20th century.

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!
