The main purpose of an office building is to support people in the performance of their tasks and activities. Office spaces are about productivity, culture, flexibility, architecture, design and costs.
The building chosen for the new Richemont Italia Headquarters is located in the north part of Milan. This part of town has been the subject of much upgrading including many examples of refurbishment and the construction of several new functional office buildings. The L-shaped construction in Via Benigno Crespi 26 is a four storey building formed by two wings. One facing North towards the street and South towards the courtyard and one facing West towards the street and East towards the courtyard. The two wings are connected by a central element conventionally called “totem”.
