The complex, designed by the architect Giò Ponti in 1972, is made up of two buildings: a high body and a low body. The high one highlights an ingenious use of geometry through different angles applied to the facades and to the two different shades of the ceramics affixed to them. The low body instead, consisting of two floors above ground, is characterized by the geometric composition of the glass-cement windows, a tribute by Ponti to the great Le Corbusier in the harmonic scan of the musical panels of the Convent of Santa Maria de La Tourette. The ongoing redevelopment intervention maintains the original identity of the property unchanged, giving new spaces, as well as new features, comforts and new generation systems to the existing ones. The project in fact provides for an additional additional floor on top of the tallest building. In addition, the complex will be enriched by a 6000 m2 equipped green area, designed as a common space and by a basement with meeting rooms and recreational areas.Less
San Vigilio 1 enjoys optimal accessibility and visibility, a few meters away is the Famagosta stop of the M2 that connects the building to the main metropolitan and railway stations of the city. In correspondence with the underground there is also a large interchange parking to support the already 69 parking spaces available.
