CityLife Project With Three Residential Skyscrapers in Milan
CityLife Hadid Residences in Milan
CityLife scale project is realized in Milan on the former fairgrounds. There will be not a high-rise housing, but three skyscrapers by Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki and Daniel Libeskind. The project also includes a large urban park designed by Kathryn Gustafson, the museum, and infrastructure.
The three towering skyscrapers are located in the heart of the business district: Isozaki Tower, Hadid Tower and Libeskind Tower. Museum of Contemporary Art, shopping area with bars and restaurants, as well as a pavilion for exhibitions, sports, entertainment, and fashion shows are also parts of the project. The residential complex consists of seven curved buildings of different heights. Distinctive architectural elements of the project are the serpentine of curved balconies and rooftops of buildings, which provides soft and elegant shapes.
Hadid Residences look relatively restrained: “wavy motion of curved balconies”, reported by the developer, is not too conspicuous. The complex has apartments ranging in size from the usual two-room apartments to two-storied penthouses. Each of them has a spacious terrace and two parking spaces in the underground garage.
When building the complex, a lot of attention was paid to environmental requirements and comfort, that is why most of the apartments are located in the south-east of Milan with a view of the city park. Interiors are designed to be easily adapted for individual needs. Each house is different from another in terms of size, design, and exposure. Construction of residential complex in Milan began in August 2009 and the developers plan to finish first apartments this year.
