Gucci has just opened its new headquarters in Milan, designed by architects Piurach. Taking over the former Caproni aircraft factory, the 30,000 square-meter complex will be comprised of offices, showrooms, a runway, and restaurant.

Utilizing the complex's abandoned warehouses, open floor plans, and hangar, the new build features an additional six-story glass tower, shed-style roofing, an outdoor plaza, and tree-lined gardens. According to Piuarch, the new building “breaks down the site’s symmetry and generates a powerful chromatic relationship with the red-colored exposed bricks of the low-level warehouses.”

With a focus on sustainability, the new build will aim use renewable energy sources on sight, reportedly saving Gucci 25 percent on its current energy costs. Currently, Gucci is hosting its dragon-filled FW18 show at the new hub.
