Located on the roof of The Medelan, an emblematic embodiment of Milanese splendor, a building that reflects the Italian style at its most authentic, Horto is a new gourmet restaurant in Milan that invites its customers to “enjoy a moment multi-sensory of relaxing escape that rises from the chaos of the metropolis, in the rediscovery of contact with nature from the city center.

From the kitchen, to the interiors, to the exterior landscape and to the choice of its partners, Horto follows a direction of experimentation and sustainability, while striving for innovation and ethical balance.

The three-star Michelin chef, Norbert Niederkofler, has been entrusted with the strategic and organizational management of the kitchen. “My sustainable approach was born with a specific objective”, comments the pioneer of sustainable culinary philosophies, “to find a balance with everything around us. I am delighted to be part of this innovative project, a catalyst for respectful behaviors, in which each choice is guided by a shared ethical vision.To be able to find its application in the heart of Milan, favoring local products and a short supply chain, is a source of pride.

Architecture studio, GLA, created the interiors focusing on a dreamlike vision and location of the rooftop restaurant. The cornerstone of the design choices was the search for materials respecting the principle of zero waste and reflecting the philosophy of the chef in the design, while designing an ethereal, pure and enveloping environment. The terrace was designed by architect and professor Raffaella Colombo and addresses the idea of ​​making accessible a dynamic and changing landscape in the heart of Milan; a medieval garden characterized by a strongly geometric and rigorous design.
