Mondadori Duomo, a bookstore directly overlooking Piazza Duomo in Milan and inaugurated on 23 March, has received LEED v4 ID+C Gold level certification.
Housed in the neo-Renaissance spaces of the Palazzo dei Portici Meridionali, the new Mondadori Duomo bookshop creates for the visitor itineraries on 3 levels, one of which is a mezzanine, which are distributed over over 1,300 square metres.
The ground floor, punctuated by a succession of luminous arches and illuminated by natural light from glass skylights, is made up of the large central Arena, which offers the visitor diversified and multi-level immersive spaces. Upstairs is the Just Comics area, the Mondadori Retail format intended for exploring the world of comics. The lower floor, the We Are Junior area, is designed for younger visitors, with child-friendly spaces and graphics.
Numerous spaces dedicated to video mapping allow you to experience audiovisual experiences and stories first-hand, characterizing Mondadori Duomo as a real 4.0 bookshop.
Attention to environmental sustainability aspects was the driving force behind the design choices and site management.
