The Credit Suisse Financial Info Center is located in an early twentieth-century building in the historic center of Milan. This is an innovative space both at a functional and compositional level. The relationship with urban space and the idea of visibility and rapport with the public represented the central project themes stipulated by the commission. A key priority of the center was to enhance the relationship between the internal space and the external urban built environment.

The key themes of the building’s renovation are transparency and the continuity of the design elements and materials. The project involves the planned demolition of the ground and first floors and the installation of a rear-lit giant screen for stock-exchange information and the projection of video art, while the workstations for financial operations and the information desk are arranged in the space below. All this has been designed to the highest technological standards. The spaces on the upper floors have been reorganized for offices and are all distinguished by a high standard of elegance and comfort.
