Involving people, revitalizing the area
Vitae is open to the city and cares for the well-being of its residents with spaces that support a balance between work, culture and training as well as sport and relaxation initiatives, for a full physical and spiritual regeneration.
The building encourages citizens to participate and make use of its social spaces by offering high quality experiences, town hall meetings, and sharing information about nature, agriculture and the environment. This participatory ecosystem focuses on interaction, exchange, and active participation between Vitae users and the Milanese community, for a mutually beneficial relationship.

Vitae for the city
An ecosystem of possibilities
Vitae is the evolution of the model of the Carthusian Charterhouse which, for a long time, connected the territory with the community. Its challenge is to bring the conceptual themes of the Certosa back into the urban context of Milan through a permeable building, which involves the community in a new way through nature, culture, well-being and entertainment.
The green spiral that rises from the square onto the rooftop of the building hosts health and wellbeing activities such as running, skating and climbing, as well as group classes such as tai chi, yoga, and anti-gravity.
The whole community will be involved in the “Grape Harvest at the Charterhouse” event, which will take place on the green promenade that runs along the building.
The vibrant community event calendar is available through an app, for a stunning and immersive multimedia experience updated in real time.
The seasonal greenhouse will be dedicated to hydroponic herb growing, offering the local community the opportunity to practice and learn new and experimental cultivation systems.
The Public Square
The urban square will be open and accessible 24/7, and will host scientific and educational events, concerts, live shows, exhibitions, and temporary open-air displays.
The Multipurpose Terrace
The top level of the building is designed as a flexible space for social activities open to the Vitae Charterhouse community, and is intended as a physical continuation of the public square on the ground floor.
A landmark development project in Milan.
Vitae operates in synergy with the Symbiosis business district, south of the Porta Romana. Together, they introduce a previously unimaginable model of the future.Discover more
