Iconic and monumental, the Horti residential complex development defies all preconceived notions of luxury. It is a 14,500 square meter residential complex of 82 luxury apartments, nestled in the heart of Milan, with a 10,000 square meter historic garden.
Designed by the Italian architecture firm aMDL Circle led by Michele DeLucchi, the development has been lauded as the jewel of the city of Milan.
RIMOND was appointed by the developer, BNP Paribas, as a multidisciplinary integrated design consultant for the rehabilitation of existing buildings, new construction of residential buildings, and renovation of a heritage building with a chapel built in 1800s that was used as social infrastructure into high-end luxury residential apartments. The project pushed the boundaries, employing greater collaboration with stakeholders, more advanced digital planning and design.
Working as a unified team, together with architects and specialist consultants, we managed a seamless delivery of stage-4 design. Tuning into local expertise was an important element of the project’s delivery. The excellent skills of our team helped maintaining relations with the local authorities streamlining the statutory approval process.
The development is rated with energy class A, USGBC LEED Gold target, and of exceptional quality thanks to collaborative efforts in fostering sustainable solutions from inception to delivery reducing the carbon footprint of the project.
