The Banca Lombarda Headquarters is part of an overall project which comprises a residential area, public spaces with a pedestrian square, a garden and parking places above and below ground.

The square is naturally the heart of the whole project, around it are both the building of the bank and the three residential blocks with shops and office areas.

The Banca Lombarda Headquarters building hosts both offices and a wide congress area with two meeting rooms of 150 and 500 seats respectively. The building is 12 storeys (50 m) high, having a total surface area of approximately 30.000 m2 plus a parking area of 25.000 m2. The building layout is particularly complex: on a square plan with a side of 50 m, it’s formed by two main wings which are connected by a “bridge” element at the 4th floor, thus creating a “C” shaped body and forming an internal courtyard over the main entrance. Right in the middle of this “C” rises the main meeting room: with a pyramid form on a squared base, completely clad in stone.
