Torre Diamante

Via Mike Bongiorno, Milano, Italy

Torre Diamante is a Highrise office building designed by the Italian-American architect Lee Polisano, member of Kohn Pedersen Fox studio. It was built in the context of the urban requalification project Porta Nuova.

The main feature of the tower is its irregular geometry; the perimeter columns of the building are inclined compared to being vertical. The inner layout is characterised by a central core around which the floors develop. This solution has been adopted to maximise the amount of sunlight passing through the building and to allow a view on the city.

One of the goals of the “Porta Nuova” project is to drastically reduce energy consumption: all the buildings will be provided with sources of renewable energy. The Diamond Tower has in fact been awarded with the LEED GOLD certification, one of the highest ranking recognised by the Green Building Council.
