Brimming with parks and green spaces, residential complex Abitare In Maggiolina in Milan promotes sustainable living through balanced structures that regenerate the area's urban fabric, and energy systems that promote responsible consumption.
125 sustainable, cutting-edge apartments
The open façade creates a dialogue with the surroundings, opening the 125 apartments to the outdoors. Built by architects Michele Brunello and Marco Brega (Dontstop Architettura) and promoted by property developer Abitare In S.P.A, the 16-storey building is home to some of PORCELANOSA's most advanced collections. Examples include XTONE®, Urbatek's sintered mineral compact with a polished texture inspired by natural stone, used in the communal areas and terraces to enhance the natural light.
Butech's 'plot' pedestal system was used to align the interior and exterior floor tiles, improving the levelling and safety of ceramic tiles thicker than 20 mm. "This is a sustainable, cutting edge project with the potential to become a benchmark for Milan thanks to the new way of living it represents, with a focus on improving our environment and wellbeing" says Marco Grillo of Abitare In.
Every home is custom-designed with the developers' ultimate goal in mind: combining innovation with eco-efficient materials and soft textures to regenerate the Maggiolina district. "The project enables residents to customise the design and finish of each apartment unit. This has only been made possible thanks to technology and cooperation," says Marco Scalvini, CEO of Abitare In.
