Maestro Technologies is excited to announce its latest project: the transformation of Oscar Niemeyer’s iconic Palazzo Mondadori into over 15,000 square meters of flexible office space. This renovation, in collaboration with CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati and the late Italo Rota, redefines the modern workspace by seamlessly integrating technology and nature into Niemeyer’s architectural masterpiece.

Maestro delivered digitally fabricated furniture, partitions & cladding systems to transform the iconic 20th century building into a flexible open office for the 21st. Alongside the manufacture of original furntiure pieces, the project saw the adaptive reuse of pre-existing chromed metal structures from the Swiss manufacturer USM. Using digital fabrication, Maestro Technologies manufactured new components to transform these shelving systems into dynamic design elements that define spaces, create privacy gradients, integrate IT, and provide flexible working areas. The reconfigured spaces encourage informal encounters, maximize natural light, and enhance the continuity between interior spaces and the surrounding park.

Despite being at the scale of furniture, the project was delivered via the Maestro Method. Maestro Technologies transformed design intent into a manufacture-compatible digital twin, managed the fabricated of components, and coordinated their assembly via the Maestro Platform. This process linked the physical component parts with their digital design data, ensuring off-site precision and speed in the assembly process.

The project is ongoing, with Maestro Technologies having delivered the first 6,000 square meters of office space in the second quarter of 2024. “We are passionate about the power of technology to transform the way we build: creating new design opportunities and decarbonizing the construction process. Adaptive reuse is a key part of that, and it shows in this project as we re-use >200,000 existing metal components to create a sustainable and innovative workspace,” says Mykola Murashko, CEO of Maestro Technologies.

The renovated Palazzo Mondadori now serves as a model for the future of office spaces, blending Niemeyer’s visionary design with contemporary innovations to create a dynamic and flexible workplace.
