Over 100 years old and located on a busy street in entral Milan, this beautiful building on the Viale Murillo took advantage of national renovation incentives to become more energy efficient. It’s a mixed neighbourhood in the very heart of the city, with banks, offices, restaurants, shops and residential buildings mingling together. No.10 Viale Murillo is a residential building, housing nine units over five floors.
Built in about 1905, this apartment building craved a deep renovation to reduce its energy use and limit the noise levels stemming from the bustling city outside.
Classified as ‘G’ – the lowest ener gy class – the building used inefficient and expensive kerosene-fired heating and guzzled 175kW/m2 per year – most of which escaped through the aging roof and floors. The renovation needed to respect its historic façade – and take place while the occupants continued to live in their apartments without disturbance by the construction workers.
In support of incentives made available by the Municipality of Milan to promote the benefits of energy renovation, ROCKWOOL Italy partnered with Enel X, an energy transformation services company, and Teicos Group, a Milanese construction company, to completely transform the building on Viale Murillo.
