Economical Use of Natural Materials from the Region
This new hotel and congress complex is situated near to the Milan and the future Expo 2015 area. The new Doubletree by Hilton offers 240 rooms, complemented by a 225-seat restaurant and a covered terrace that can hold 250 people, with a lobby bar and fitness area. It also has extensive meeting facilities, with over 4,800 sq. ft. of flexible meeting room space. The architect’s vision of a sober building and his idea to use natural materials of the region like timber wood and terracotta were fully realized. The galvanised steel elements in the facade together with the timber wood panels and the glazing perfectly dress the 225-ton steel skeleton. In this particular project, the calculation capabilities of Scia Engineer enabled the company to use effectively the natural materials of the region like timber wood and terracotta.
