The Richard Towers redevelopment project in Milan represents an excellent and innovative architectural design by BMS Progetti. The complex consists of 7 towers, where GammaStone provides the façade, pilasters and string courses of the 18-storey Tower C with its Gres AIR “Valmalenco Stone effect” lightweight panels and pre-assembled elements. The exclusively designed and customized corner solutions of the pre-assembled elements make this project unique and elite.
The façade system features a vertical wall pattern that deals with the structural corner elements and flows to the top of the tower as a true crowning that allows integration with the brand signs of the company that will use the building. The new façade consists of two elements, the full pilaster and the window, alternating with a regular rhythm to generate a constant horizontal modularity on the whole tower.
This creates a wall surface, stone-like in material, which pursues a simple design, made up of few but meticulous details, in harmony with the neighbouring towers but simultaneously showing desire for change and modernization. The partial demolition of the existing sills with the extension of the transparent part of the glazed façade leads to a high level of energy efficiency and comfort in the internal space.
