The project of RCS Headquarters in Crescenzago, a north-east area of Milan, includes a general planning of the area (90,000 sqm), the refurbishment of an existing building and the construction of two new office buildings (named C building and E building). The new Headquarters, of about 22,000 sqm, finished in 2007, will house all RCS Group magazines. The building consists of a 4-storey high construction enclosing a huge court, then rising to a 80-meter high tower. The court opens on the existing side of the building and the entrance is on Via Angelo Rizzoli. The building structure is made of concrete, except for the tower, which has a steel frame hooked up to a concrete core. The shape is made up of a double skin of insulated metal panels and wide glazed portions. The people who are going to work in these open-space floors will account for about 1,100, where a flexible system of movable partitions will define the workstations.
