Kering’s Milanese Makeover: From Palazzo to Powerhouse
The French luxury conglomerate Kering has heralded the inauguration of a new 9500 square meter corporate headquarters in Milan. The prestigious Palazzo Pertusati houses Kering exclusively, sprawled across six levels in the bustling Via Senato, with an unparalleled dual view — the fashion district, Quadrilatero della Moda on one side, and the lush greenery of the Giardini di Porta Venezia (Indro Montanelli Gardens) on the other.
The building finds its roots in the former Palazzo Pertusati Gropallo, designed by 18th-century architect Simone Cantoni and once revered as a paradigm of Neoclassical style, Kering elaborated in a press release.
A Melange of Style, Functionality, and Comfort
The interiors have been wholly reimagined for flexible use, featuring ample natural lighting and a comfortable work environment. Five levels are dedicated to workspaces, accommodating more than 300 formal seats.
The decor pays tribute to iconic pieces of Italian design, arranged in spaces finished with organic colors and textured materials. This aesthetic is beautifully juxtaposed with an environment emphasizing natural vegetation, embodying Kering’s commitment to sustainability and the promotion of natural spaces.
