The new Gucci Milan Headquarters can be found in a former aircraft manufacturing facility that has been expertly redesigned to house the fashion giant. The new space was designed by Italian architects Piurach, which focused on enhancing the stylish features of space while still maintaining the 1920s architecture. Most of the major changes occurred in the interior of the buildings, as Piurach repurposed the expansive warehouses into showrooms and spaces for hosting fashion shows.
The rows of former warehouses blend seamlessly into the interiors of building, giving the new Gucci Milan Headquarters a deep sense of connection that all seems to converge on a six-storey tower. The striking tower is covered with a grid of steel sunscreens and is the most modern intervention on the site. That being said, the tower still blends in with the surrounding space, as the black steel construction mirrors the metal roof of the warehouses.
