Copernico Martesana: well-being and business trends.

A dynamic hub where well-being and business trends are well balanced, a flexible, hybrid and multifunctional workplace, core of an urban renovation process. The simple internal design of Copernico Martesana in Milan follows the main trends and needs of the new ways of working, like the biophilic design of the Oxygen Room and the home-feeling given by the Loft Office.

The Copernico Platform for Smart Working is constantly growing; following the successful experiences of Copernico Centrale, ClubHouse Brera , the workplace in Turin, and many others, the 6.500 sqm of the thirteenth Copernico hub in the north-eastern part of Milan.
“With Copernico Martesana we want to put our focus on the wellbeing of each worker becoming, at the same time, actors in the new economic processes that lead to new business opportunity”, Pietro Martani, Copernico’s CEO, says. “We want to anticipate the ever-evolving market and workers needs”.

Interior design is inspired by “genius loci” and the building of the ’70s was transformed in a vibrant environment featured by a cool, industrial design.

The centre of the project is the main cafeteria, a hybrid and informal meeting space, designed together by Bunker, Torricelli Associati and Weltgebraus to foster the culture of communication and interaction.

For the interiors, a neutral and neat design was chosen in order to help communication and to create a homogeneous workplace.
“The innovative system Copernico is made by three dimensions: space, connection, culture“, Pietro Martani concludes. “Copernico Martesana wants to become a benchmark in the area”, transmitting his features to an urban redeveloping area.

Copernico, a revolutionary spirit for the workplace.

A grand party sanctioned the official opening a few days ago, but Copernico Milano Centrale has been working at full capacity for several months and has already generated a most active network. 16.000 m2 of temporary offices and coworking with some dynamic ancillary areas and carried out with a reasonable budget. Along with the new space, the platform Copernico, created by Windows on Europe was also launched to meet the changes of new ways of working and smart working needs.The motto is Create, Contaminate, Connect.

The building Copernico Milano Centrale (owner Fondo Immobiliare Cimarosa – Generali Immobiliari Sgr) is in a strategic position close to Centrale railroad Station and was renovated by Studio DC10 to be changed into a place, that can aggregate the local most vital energies and trigger virtuous speeding-up processes of the company.
It was defined a “Concept Building”. 6 floors of plug&play workspaces with a “social floor”, the core of Copernico’s philosophy devoted to create relationships and synergies among the users: it is a flexible area for networking, relaxing, food and events.

“We can define Copernico as a vision rather than a workplace… it marks out a new sign on the European map of the workplace.” quoted Pietro Martani, creator of Copernico and CEO of Windows on Europe.
Rooms follow one another in a continuum of mixed spaces; areas with an industrial mood alternate with more conventional offices and domestic-like environments.

The Fil rouge of all areas is maximum flexibility to suit all kinds of circumstances and functions: handcrafted workshops, reconfigurable turn key conference room, a coworking area in the basement, a basic and informal place focused on acoustic comfort; the Theatre multimedia equipped; the Club, a loft equipped with vintage furnishing of the ‘50ties ( a must of the new start-up aesthetics) a gym and an agorà to share experiences.

The strong points are the “urban design style” Café with a terrace overlooking the park and the outside area, a 2000 m2 park for concerts, shooting or board meeting: in the city, a real privilege!
