Carosello

A series of new extensions and structural modifications for the renovation of this shopping centre in Milan. New visitor facilities and retail space are arranged beneath a huge green roof, the largest in Italy. Light cannon skylights pierce the roof structure which is formed with reinforced concrete framing and bespoke steel cones. In counterpoint the adjacent entrance pavilion is formed as a lightweight steel frame with all-glass envelope.
