Palazzo Mantegazza

Lugano, Switzerland


On 16 floors (5 of which are below ground level), the Palazzo Mantegazza combines high quality residential accommodation, culture and commerce under one roof in a prime location. Accordingly, the building presented very special requirements with regard to sound insulation and the quality of the interior.

Lightweight Piano panels (W112, W115, W116, W626, W629) were used for the interior walls and cooling solutions with thermal panels (D112) were used for the ceilings. For the floors, both GIFAfloor cavity floors (F18) and GIFAfloor double floors (DB) were installed.
