This innovative project is a model of vertical densification of nature within the city by contributing to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity. Developed by Hines Italia in Milan Porta Nuova (Italy), has won the first prize for the “International Highrise Award”.

The special facades of the two residential towers are covered with more than 100 different species of plants for a total of 20,000 square metres of trees and undergrowth.
The same facades that have earned this important recognition are totally insulated with ISOVER glass wool.
