Babila Hostel


Giancarlo Noce, Giovanni Picolli and Angela Natale, architects associated with the ARX2 Studio, oversaw the reconversion of a 1900 neo-gothic building located in the center of Milan.
The intervention, agreed upon with the Superintendent of the monuments of Milan, while maintaining the morphological characteristics of the building organism intends to adapt the original spaces to the needs of use typical of a receptive structure.
The formal choices, especially minimalist, have happily been integrated with the expressive force of the original architecture; inside, luminous art installations and lighting solutions with a high design content enhance the plastic richness of the covering vaults, while on the outside they highlight the decorative stone elements of the imposing brick façade.
