The project

  • Location Milano - Italy
  • Date 2007
  • Studio Gregotti Associati International

By law, the design for the new Pirelli office building had to respect the height, function and construction area parameters of the pre-existing industrial building. It was therefore a “building replacement” project to be carried out via the demolition and reconstruction of the spaces already present in the previous building, enhancing its architectural qualities while respecting the morphology of the historic construction fabric. 

The design and architectural choices for the redevelopment and transformation of the entire Pirelli site and its buildings were therefore made with the goal of underlining the continuity of production established in the area throughout the 20th century.

Shipping and logistics are still operational.

Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.

Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.

Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.

Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.

We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
