The residences designed by Daniel Libeskind are in the stylish Fiera Milano district, between Piazza Giulio Cesare and Piazza Amendola. The Residences are situated next to the new public park with panoramic views of the Alps , the city centre, and across the site is the new Libeskind designed PwC tower that will be completed next year.
Daniel Libeskind designed the second string of the residential archipelago at CityLife to exemplify contemporary living within a historic city. The project includes 104 apartments laid out across three buildings. The alternation of façade materials and the vertical orientation of the alignments give a sculptural effect to the buildings. A system of balconies creates outdoor spaces of different depths for each apartment. Every apartment is utterly unique and designed to take full advantage of the view.
The Milanese way of life is imbued throughout the site with lush greenery, classical courtyards , and wellness amenities. Libeskind spent his early career living in Milan and has a deep connection to the city. “Milan is a city of the imagination—it is a creative and vibrant city,” said architect Daniel Libeskind. “Creating the intimacy and privacy of an apartment is something quite different to planning a museum or an office building. The challenge is to create not just an inhabitable space, but to create a home. Just like the occupants the buildings are individuals with an inside and an outside that is truly unique,” says Libeskind of the CityLife Residences.
Construction is set to be completed in 2023.
