WoodN façades for the CMR Project Architecture Studio

Progetto CMR has selected WoodN engineered wood façades to renovate its Milan headquarters


Progetto CMR is an Architecture Firm whose strong points are cooperation, internationality and sustainability: the Firm has ten offices around the world, three departments (Design, Engineering and Architecture) and 160 professionals including architects, engineers and designers.

In 2018 Progetto CMR decided to bring rock and sustainability to its Milanese home in via Russoli, a former industrial area which has become a local hotspot: thanks to this important renovation work the Firm has reduced its energy consumption and CO2 emissions, and is able to better manage its ventilation and air conditioning.

The concept behind this project is that of smart working: each space is designed to change according to work objectives and the innovative materials chosen reflect the requirements of the Firm.

The WoodN team participated in the project development and in the construction of the façades from the very start, offering our systems and products made of engineered wood. An embodiment of beauty and flexibility, we have chosen a line of sunshades that portrays the perfect outdoor product: it is light, sturdy and fire, water and wind resistant. 

In fact, we covered the main façades of the new building with the JF 18041 profile, thus providing solar protection to the structure in order to achieve the goal of sustainability, living comfort and low consumption required by architect Massimo Roj. The new location has a strong sustainable footprint and was designed to obtain the Leed certification.

By selecting this application we were able to achieve maximum customization in the design of the façade: with about 30 profiles featuring different sections, this sunshade family offers a variety of customization options and structural solidity.
