The project is spread over two connected buildings, the main building overlooking Corso Venezia, consists of six floors: basament and ground floor are store, 1st, 2nd, 3rd show room and office, attic guesthouse, the second two-storey building is inside the courtyard  are the style offices.


The Challenge was to design a completely new buiding but make it look like it was there from the early nineteenth century, "like an old mansion inherrited from an elderly aunt". This was the request from the client, the British queen firm of fashion Vivienne Westwood. I designed the building after a thorough research on the style of the nearby building in Corso Venezia, one of the most prestigious and historical street in Milano, thinking of a building that fits harmoniously with the others.


All the details, windows, balconies, frizies, cornices, stained glass windows in the courtyard, has been designed inspired by the classic style of my city. The result is that up to now no one has ever noticed that it is a new building.


The Interiors also was designed to suggest a modern view of the classic Milanese style, fusing large spaces with accent of classic decor, ooden flooring and resin that reflect the design of the ceilings, the result is a contemporary style with classic references.
