SOCIAL HOUSING CASCINA MERLATA

Place: Milan | Italy

Client: Beni Stabili Gestioni SGR

Period: 2013 – 2015

Project: The “Cascina Merlata” project repurposes an area of ca. 540,000 sqm located in the northwest quadrant of Milan, in a strategic area from an infrastructural standpoint: it is linked to the A4 Turin-Venice highway, the A8 Milan-Malpensa route and the West Beltway, through a new roadway connection.
The lot is close to the fairgrounds at Fiera Rho-Pero and the site of Expo 2015, to which it is connected by a bike and pedestrian footbridge. The new neighborhood was designed with the most advanced principles of environmental sustainability in mind, and includes a functional mix characterized by residential (subsidized and free market), commercial and services. During Expo 2015 the area housed the Expo Village, which was then converted to Social Housing and services.

Activities:

  • Project oversight
