About Palazzo Lombardia
Recalling the mountains, valleys, and rivers of Lombardy, Palazzo Lombardia's distinctive form is composed of sinuous interweaving strands of linear office space, seven to nine stories in height. This assemblage of gently curved glass-walled workplaces, readily adaptable to changing functional requirements, allows the building to integrate with its urban context while creating unique landscaped public spaces that are open and inviting to all.
