From the architect. The new D&G headquarters in Milan contains the showrooms for the collections, offices, a restaurant and a series of image spaces, ina total area of 5.000 square meters. Two buildings dating back to the 1920s and the 1960s, facing three streets, are combined in a complex with five floors above ground and two basement levels. The project is based on an architectural principle of great rigor, with the use of natural materials like white Namibia stone, glass and unfinished steel sheet.
