Il Sole 24 Ore Headquarters

Milan, Italy

A pre-existing industrial building was restored and converted to be the new headquarters of the Italian financial daily newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore.

By demolishing the street facade of the original square building, a south-facing opening was created. The new building is U-shaped, with a vast central garden, a green hill hiding subterranean parking underneath.

Bright-green sun-shading blinds on the outside of the glass facade animate the exterior.
