The office tower Diamond Tower is located in the very heart of the Business District Varesine in Milan and it is included in the Porta Nuova project: a redevelopment project of 290,000 sqm. total area, finally connecting three historial districts. Among its keys features there is the prestigious international sustainability pre-certification LEED Gold.
The architect Eugene Kohn, partner at KPF (Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates), says: <<Today architecture turns often into sculpture, as designers who search for the beautiful work ended to itself. In this project the form arises from the need of efficiency, although we considered that the area, also before the huge redevelopment of Garibaldi, Isola and Varesine, has already a strong office calling, with historical buildings such as the skyscraper in Piazza della Repubblica, the Torre Galfa, Pirelli building”. The focus on efficiency develops in studying the ideal orientation in order to irradiate the building more and more and reduce consumptions for heating and cooling, selecting sustainable materials and efficient technologies allowing to realize Class A office buildings.
