Offices We have yet to experience anything even closely equal to our incredible six days at Castello di Reschio in Umbria. So it should not have come as a surprise to us that their office building would turn out to be stunning as well. But it just feels somehow unfair that some people really do get to call this restored 1940s tobacco processing factory as their everyday office. Late last summer, Count Benedikt Bolza, the talented managing director and chief architect of the Castello di Reschio estate, and his team finished the restoration of the estate’s tobacco factory building so that the estate offices, design studio, workshops and exhibitions could move in. Heritage and history are exquisitely balanced with contemporary style and cool elegance, yet the space does not feel pretentious or contrived.

I even drew my own diagram on a napkin.
