The prestigious Palazzo Lombardia office complex is the working hub of 3,000 employees based in the city of Milan. The building encloses flexible workplaces which reflect the Regional Management’s changing workspace requirements and organisational structure.


The courtyard has been covered with an intricate steelwork structure and Texlon® ETFE cushions to create an active space all year round. The courtyard boasts 174 bespoke Texlon® ETFE cushions, which provide solar control and enhanced thermal performance.


The Texlon® ETFE cushion installation was performed using rope access techniques and Vector Foiltec’s unique trafficable netting system which enabled other trades to work without significant exclusion zones.
