Postcardproblem 3

Try to place the 12 pentominoes inside the largest possible rectangle, in such a way that the pentominoes divide the rectangle in 5 parts of equal size.
There may not be more then 5 open areas; also open areas are not allowed to touch each other in a corner.
The pentominoes must form one shape, so that from any pentomino there is a pentomino path to any other pentomino.

Find the largest solution in which one of the open areas is a rectangle.
The parts in our example are 48 squares.
