The Challenge of Simplicity.



Bringing the Milan-based company consisting of over 1000 people under one roof is not only a design challenge linked to optimisation of space, but is also an organisational challenge. Global Planning Architecture followed the principle of high convertibility and flexibility with the aim of redesigning the workflows and interaction between the divisions and individual people. All this with the intention of making collaboration and the exchange of information easy, straightforward, immediate, and increasing overall organisational efficiency.

To construct the new location spread over 18,000 square meters, Global Planning Architecture followed an integrated approach to create a comfortable environment by working on the size of the individual and collective spaces and the circulation flows and examining the dominant colours. The solutions that have been adopted have made the spaces flexible, facilitating the use of equipment by multiple workers. This is so that 1,000 workstations, 16 meeting rooms, 4 archives, 7 receptions, 1 library, 2 training classrooms, 5 break areas and 1 bar area fit harmoniously into the overall context.
