Galleria Bolchini was presented in the centre Milan with a whole new architectural and lighting design turning to its original splendour with a contemporary touch. Palazzo Bolchini is risen at the Meda Square adorning the public space with the portico as designed by Pier Giulio Magistretti in the 1920s. The Parisotto & Formenton directs the requalification of the portico and entrusted Metis Lighting with the development of the new lighting scheme, after their successful collaboration in the Galleria Protti.
The architectural project involved both the conservative approach towards the historical elements to be restored and preserved like the wall, floor and intrados finishings and another more rejuvenating intention. For the latter, the strategy included redesigning the shops show windows framing and the signage, as well as the insertion of sun protection grids, as a substitute to the original curtains.
