New boarding house for students in Milan
Client: Collegio di Milano
Team: AM3 architetti associati, Arch. Raffaella Campanella
Location: Milan, Italy
Project status: competition - selected
The new boarding house for students, situated in the area belonging to the Foundation of the Universities of Milan, has been planned as a narrow building which extends along almost the whole area of intervention, with a pronounced bend about halfway its length. It creates various types of external spaces: to the North East, an opening point towards the road highlights the new entrance positioned in a central point of the building, while to the West the concave part of the building creates a clearing inside the park on which overlook the leisure spaces for students and the single rooms. To the East, the building delineates a park which connects the entrance area to the sports facilities already present on the premises.
