The project LE RESIDENZE DI VIA CAMPARI is characterized by the use of innovative high quality products:

Wide sliding doors (up to 4.000mm wide x 2.750mm high) with triple glazing units with a low-E coating. A distinguishing feature of the project consists of a circular window, 1200mm in diameter, inlaid in the terracotta ventilated façade.

The complexity of this project is enhanced by the 9000 m2 of Terracotta ventilated façade. The system consists of standard and corrugated profile tiles which have been bespoke designed and installed in alternate stripes following the curved radii of the building’s complicated geometry.
The ventilated façade is mechanically restrained to an AISI 304 stainless steel substructure, fixed on the concrete structure by means of expansion bolts.

The terrace areas are provided with a perimeter terracotta cladding 450mm in width. The shopfronts at ground floor consist of stick curtain walling with DGU and low-E coating.

Every architectural project aims at becoming a piece of the city in which it is built. If it is autonomous, isolated and self-referential, it has no sense at all. Mario Botta

Technology

Sede Direzionale del Gruppo Campari e Residenze

The double envelope façade of the office building consists of a mixed system with an external and an internal skin.

The inner skin consists of two main components:

  • The spandrel fascia (steel frame, mineral wood insulator and aluminium sheet), having dimension of 4.500mm wide x 1.200mm high, is assembled in the factory and is installed complete with supporting brackets for the external skin and the steel walkway grid. The average weight of each fascia is 550 Kg.
     
  • The glazing (2.900mm high from floor to floor) is a stick system with thermal break profiles, which allows the DGU installation or disassembly from the inside of the building (the average weight of the inner skin is 70kg/m2).

The history of Campari starts from a small place in Novara, il Caffè dell’Amicizia (the Friendship Café), acquired by Gaspare Campari in 1860.

In 1904, they established one of their first factories in Sesto San Giovanni. The redevelopment of Campari Headquarters in Sesto San Giovanni took place through a new construction which includes an office building and residential towers, setting the rest of the area free for the new urban park.

The new Campari headquarters is divided into two main buildings hinged together. One is spread over nine floors above ground and two underground floors, whilst the other one has the shape of a bridge and has only two floors above ground, the fourth and fifth, as well as two underground. These two volumes embrace the office building of the old factory. 

The residences are divided into four towers shaped like a quarter of a circle, of different heights, covered with red bricks. These towers contain about 100 apartments in addition to commercial activities on the ground floor and they are equipped with the latest technology to meet the needs of environmental sustainability and energy saving.
