British architect David Chipperfield has an office in Milan, in addition to those in London, Berlin and Shanghai. The complex comprises an assemblage of two, three and four-storey volumes, framing a network of courtyards and passages designed to help integrate the new structures with the surrounding industrial architecture. Photography is by Oskar Da Riz. Around this, the architects designed a series of boxy buildings, featuring a standing-seam cladding of zinc-titanium.
