Green Opificio


Panaria Ceramica in the new “Green Opificio” residential project in Milan



Panaria Ceramica participated in the creation of “Green Opificio”, the new residential project designed by architects Christian Fenouil of Place Milano and Marco Almasio of 3A Architetti associati. This major renovation project involved the redevelopment of an old hotel in the Bovisa district in Milan – one of the areas undergoing the greatest transformation –, which was transformed into a contemporary multi-purpose building.

The new space contains 5,000 sq m dedicated to homes and 3,500 sq m of green space. The building features a contemporary design, enhancing the industrial aesthetic between metal and concrete without taking away the charm of green, a natural element that not only decorates, but that becomes an integral part of this residential complex.

Panaria Ceramica enriches the project by covering the building’s external surfaces and enhancing its metropolitan character. In particular, for the exterior coverings, the designers chose the sophisticated and high-performance aesthetic of the Zero.3 Urbanature collection of concrete-effect ultra-thin slabs in the Portland 100x100 cm version. Urbanature is a collection with an industrial character and a metropolitan and minimalist spirit. Thanks to the lightness, versatility of use and large dimensions of the laminated stoneware, Urbanature is ideal for coverings.

The horizontal surfaces of the terraces are characterized by the Chic Wood wood-effect collection in the chestnut brown Coco shade in the 20x120 cm format. The elegant simplicity of wood lends style and warmth to the project, which was also designed with a focus on “social contact design”, encouraging a sense of community and quality of life in a big city.

Slowing down today, to come back stronger tomorrow.

Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.

Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.

Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.

Nevertheless, the company is not closing.

We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.

We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.

We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
