THE CONTEXT

The area where the Forrest In Town residences will rise is adjacent to Milan’s Naviglio Grande and still retains the charm of the old city, with its old churches, taverns and the lapping of the canoe oars that cross the Naviglio. Over time, in its surroundings, some of the most important realities of the city have arisen such as the Fashion complex in Via Morimondo, the Iulm University, the heart of Milanese communication, and the S. Paolo Hospital.

Forrest In Town develops along the sides of a trapeze, according to the ancient typology of the Milanese court. In the center, the residential complex is embellished with a park of 6,200 square meters on which all the buildings overlook, which do not exceed three floors above ground and offer different housing solutions for a total of 10,000 square meters: from the apartment, two-room and three-room apartments, also with private garden, up to the town house, with sky land development.

Natural materials, wood, wrought iron, stones, roofs covered with tiles and plaster in the typical colors of ancient Milan, will characterize the common areas and the housing units, giving a country soul and at the same time refined design. For leisure and sports and wellness activities for the inhabitants of the complex, Forrest In Town will host, under the park, a SPA with Turkish bath, gym and indoor swimming pool. Complete the intervention, along one side of the complex, facing Via Zumbini, some commercial spaces which, in size and appearance, recall the old neighborhood shops, with possible access only from the outside, in order to preserve privacy and security of residents.
