Prysmian Group headquarters, Milan. The former Ansaldo area, in the Bicocca district, is the object of a post-industrial action of redevelopment with a green soul. Two big greenhouses and a greenhouse/foyer – equipped with easy-to-manage hydroponic systems – stand at the heart of the office buildings, hosted within the former factories.

The ideal climatisation typical of each environment and suited to the seasons is reached thanks to automated systems that further enhance the uniformity of the buildings with large, tall windows.

Energy saving has also been a paramount theme during the redevelopment of the area. As a consequence, 3,700 sqm of solar panels have been installed within the premises.


Myplantonline presents some design studios that present their solutions, suggestions and points of vies with an eye to sustainability in short videos. Public and private spaces, urban redevelopment, landscape regeneration, reuse of existing buildings are some of the themes highlighted in these presentations, that help one imagine and develop more sustainable ways of living, working and moving, which are also closer to nature.

The section is curated by EN SPACE network.

She has always been involved in the relationship of man and nature. In 1995 she became the owner of a building firm after a 10-year experience in the field. Through the process of organisation of a building site, she has learned a work method that can be applied to every activity, both from a design-related point of view and from an entrepreneurial point of view. In 2002 she opened her own design studio in Milan after years of practice in other firms. She develops new architectural and landscape projects, and coordinates instalments, events and exhibitions, among which: Urban Solutions for Fiera Milano (2009), Culture_Nature for the Biennale di Architettura di Venezia (2012), d’Annunzio and Giardini di Pan for Vittoriale degli Italiani (2014-2016). In 2006 she funded EN SPACE network, a project that brings together various activities, bodies and companies. Since 2015 she cooperates with Myplant & Garden for the section landscape and building. Among her clients: Il Vittoriale degli Italiani, Libreria Editrice Vaticana, Musei Vaticani, IPM Italia, Italtufi, Jacuzzi. She is currently involved in the project L-ODO-ROSA, which she has invented and which she coordinates.
