A week ago, Microsoft Italy inaugurated the Microsoft House in Milan, its new headquarters located in a building of Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli in the district of Porta Volta. Designed by architects Herzog & De Meuron, the new vessel is characterized by transparency, vast open spaces and beautiful furnitures.
Fubiz, a popular website covering the latest news about art and design, has just published several pictures of the cozy new offices, designed by French agency DEGW. You can find some of these pictures below, and you’ll probably notice some Surface Hubs being used in different meeting rooms:
Of course, having beautiful offices is a good way to attract and retain talent, but the Microsoft Italy has much bigger ambitions for the Microsoft House. Carlo Purassanta, Country General Manager of Microsoft Italy, explained on LinkedIn that the new headquarters was “a place to show and spread the benefits offered by digital technologies, a space for young people who want to develop themselves through continuous growth, as well as a permanent workshop where anyone can understand the future of technology and envision ways to strengthen Italian economic and social growth.”
If you live in Milan, we invite you to check the dedicated Microsoft House website to learn more about the location, upcoming events and various services for customers, partners, students, startups, nonprofit organizations and more.
