8,335 square meters of facade for the renovation of the Italian headquarters of Amazon in via Monte Grappa, Milan. A cellular facade system with very fast construction that has revealed a record time of 4 months for the overall assembly. The building is characterized by vertical sun shading elements, consisting of silk-screened glass pilasters with 50% density and METRA Building aluminium elements. In order to create a sort of vertical mesh, aluminium sun shade elements were also inserted, treated with a polished steel finish.
METRA Building aluminium and glass blend to give solidity and transparency to this famous building in Milan, dating back to the 70s, of which we wanted to preserve some characteristics, with a reinterpretation on an aesthetic and functional level.
